On fire, literally
I don’t know if you heard, what with the Solange Knowles/Jay Z debacle in the news, but the wildfires are already raging here in SoCal. The first fire in our area was a mile away from my house. We were evacuated on Tuesday but were allowed back into town on Wednesday. I was supposed to teach Lego Robotics on Tuesday, but as we could see this view from the school yard, the school cancelled all activities.
And this view from behind our school.
Jack’s teacher’s house was 10 feet from the San Marcos fire. 10 FEET. She’s still evacuated as there are still hotspots in that fire. School was cancelled on Thursday and Friday due to evacuations. It’s been pretty surreal seeing all the plumes of smoke from the 9 fires.
When I evacuated, I made sure to bring all my important papers, Jack’s baby photos, my jewelry, and most importantly, my sewing machines. It’s important to keep your priorities straight when evacuating. I just bought that Baby Lock serger. There was no way I was leaving it behind. No. Way.
Obviously, there has been no sewing whatsoever going on in these parts. Although the fabric for my Mom’s Mother’s Day maxi dress just arrived, so I might put my sewing room back together today and start working on it. I am kind of jonesing for a sewing fix.
Anyway, stay safe wherever you are and remember to keep your sewing machines safe. Priorities people. Priorities!
