I have found no updates on our fire this morning, which I take to be good news. I think it would be impossible to update for every single fire in this state at this time, it’s just unimaginable. Or was, until this summer. As Joanne, a blogger friend who lives in New South Wales was saying, it’s like their summer was last year.
While many areas are experiencing weird orange skies (which I have seen here one summer when there were no fires close by), our skies are gray, heavy with smoke, and I cannot see the hills that are behind my property, just across the highway. It looks like this:
As far as I am aware, all evacuation notices for the area have been dropped, and while I doubt the fire is truly contained, I think it must be being controlled. This is a good thing.
In the meantime, I am starting a new project on my loom, and I have bread proofing. Housework? Nah, I want to do things that make me happy. Housework will wait. I know from experience, it does not go away.
