It’s very hot and unusually dry here in Kentucky, but this is nothing compared to what the folks in Colorado Springs are dealing with. The Christian Writers Guild is based there and I have friends there. The small town of Manitou Springs at the base of Pike’s Peak was evacuated. I have visited Manitou and it’s a beautiful place. I remember walking through the town and stopping to taste some of the waters from the springs. Please pray with me that lives and homes will be spared.
I’ve been watering my lawn, trying to keep the grass from browning out, but I think it may be a losing battle. We need some of the rain that Florida is getting. I’ll bet they would be glad to share!
On the other hand, this is the perfect weather for reading a good book (hint—hint) under a beach umbrella or maybe while sunning by the pool. Maggie and I will be in lawn chairs watching the sprinkler mimic rain. You can bet there will be a book and a glass of iced tea close at hand.
Blessings to you dear friends. Stay cool.
P.S. I just went outside to turn off the water to the hose which I had on a drip under one of my trees, and came face to well—not quite face—with a skunk! Good grief. I ducked back inside and missed the spray, but things don’t smell very good at my house right now. Plus, Maggie is barking her little head off and I can’t get outside to turn the hose off. Guess I’ll wait awhile and try again.
