Burning Ring of Fire

Texas Fires Visible From SPACE.

DO NOT WANT.

In other unpleasant news, my car is in the shop for the weekend for some battery issues. I'm glad it was caught early and maintenance and parts NOW are cheaper than they would be in another year or so when they'd have to apparently completely replace a whole bunch of stuff, but still. SIGH.

In cheerier news, my story for this week's writing class is going easier and hopefully I can post it f-locked later this weekend. I at least like the concept behind it: we had to start with a "dreamlike" writing exercise and, me being me, I added stuff. *looks shifty*

I'm glad your story is going well and I can't wait to see it.

Texas fires are not good. My cousin posted pictures of the smoke taken from her neighborhood. It's way too close for comfort.

Hurray for catching car problems early.

Stay safe!

Thanks!! The fires are still a ways from here, though we've been able to smell the smoke a few days this week when they were real bad. It's not fun at all!!!
