The state is on fire. So sad. A lot of homes have been lost, no reports of lives lost yet. As I walked to the bus downtown yesterday, it smelled like a campfire. Not a normal smell for city streets. When I got to my car, it was covered with ash, and ashes were still falling. Air quality is out of control. There is a deep, thick, haze – that is all smoke. The weather forecast is nothing but hot and dry, with wind thrown in for good measure, the worst possible news for firefighters, and the people whose homes are in the path of the fires. Praying for all those involved.
Last night I was up until 10:30 baking these cupcakes. They are so cute! Today will be my last “big meeting” around which my current job revolves. I thought it would be nice to bring a treat. I hope they like these. Red velvet mini cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. The regular sized cupcakes are for my department.
I have to drive to work today to get those cupcakes there intact. I will likely pay between $7 and $10 to park. That just irritates me. I was hoping not to pay for parking one more day. But I can see that won’t work. I love public transportation, but it doesn’t work so well when your schedule is variable and you need to bring things back and forth to work.
I am sooooooo boring. But to me it is wonderful. I am just living life and thanking God every day for it.
Praise the Lord! raise the Lord from the heavens, praise him in the heights! Praise him , all his angels, praise him, all his host! — Psalm 148
