It has been crazy windy here (as evidenced by the numerous fires that are raging). So windy, in fact, that we have been unable to even play outside in the evening it was so miserable. Thankfully (especially for the firefighters!) the wind was less today and we got rid of some much needed energy outside. Lots of people have been concerned about us. Thankfully all the fires are far enough away that we haven't been much affected. School was cancelled today due to fire concerns, but they will be back at school tomorrow.
I can't believe it's been almost a year since I last did this.
Today got off to an early start with a phone call that one of my patients was about to deliver. I rushed in and made it in between the birth of the baby boy and the placenta. I was thankful to then be able to rush back home with a detour to pick up birthday doughnuts for my favorite three year old and take the other two kids to school.
I was worried I wouldn't get any good pics because I was at work (indoors) for most of the daylight hours and then we had a small group fellowship meeting but once I downloaded everything I was happy to see I got a few nice ones.
It's been super windy here for the last couple of days; so much so that we now have several wild fires burning around us. Thankfully we seem to be safe for now, but please pray these winds die down so the fires can be controlled more easily.
Before moving to California I had never lived anywhere where I was ever limited in what I do by the wind. But this time of year, when we get the Santa Ana winds, just going outside can be miserable. Today was one of those days.
