california is burning. since reno is just over the range from california the smoke from the wildfires gets carried into the valley and it makes me sad…not that there is smoke obstructing my view of the mountain, but because california is burning and i love california. ususally we have a pretty clear view of the mountain from our apartment, but not lately. when i took this picture i kept humming, “little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky. little boxes on the hillside and they all look just the same…” from weeds.
i have been trying to stay inside with the windows closed because the air quality bothers sean, luxe and jezebel (the dogs), and my eyes. but, i did venture to the somersett farmer’s market. it was pretty teensy tiny–maybe 5-6 vendors in all. we did pick up some ambrosia melons, cherries (more on those later), white peaches and 18-year old balsamic. a few beers, melon and balsamic dressed peaches almost made me want to hang out on the balcony…despite the smoke.
