There is a light at the end of the tunnel. My fire victims are getting close to moving out of my living room and back to their property. They might be gone by the end of the month, at least that is their goal. They will have a temporary dog building and a motor home to live in while their house is getting rebuilt. Not the best conditions, but at least they will be able to let the dogs bark and run around. And, they will be a lot warmer.

Since I haven't been able to work on my house I have been spending time enjoying some of my passions. The rains have come to Southern California the wild mushroooms are popping up. I have been going on forays for the last 2 weeks. It is so exciting to forage through the forests and find these delectable little morsels. These 3 different varieties are ready for the frying pan.

Another gift happened this week. I went down to my faceting class and my instructor mentioned that some friends of his were trying to get rid of 2 kilns. They weren't able to sell them so they were just going to give them away. I raise my hand, and today I started moving them to my house. I guess it is time to start thinking about sculpture once again.

Sometimes life just works in my favor.
