Lord, sometimes I ramble. And now that I type this I realize rambling would have been a much better word to use instead of fish. Honestly, just came to me. But will I go back and fix this post? Nope. Here I am, flaws and all. Happy Monday everyone. #prayerpause
CAMP FIRE UPDATE on MOM:
Well-9 days later and we finally found out last night- It’s official- mom’s place is 100% gone.Only 2 buildings in the Paradise Gardens I II & III complex of units made it untouched & 1 with minor damage- all others are ash.
Butte County Residents still are not allowed back so we just had to wait for the Camp Fire Structure Map From Cal- Fire to be updated as they comb each area for bodies. Our hearts break every time one is found, or the list of the missing grows.
Mom is taking it pretty hard tonight.
We have been working non-stop to try to secure all of her basic necessities and some sort of housing. There are 52 thousand Butte County Residents that are displaced, 28k from Paradise alone. We are in an affordable housing crisis in California so finding her housing at the moment is our main concern now- little lone affordable senior housing- a needle in a haystack. One day at a time.
We WILL make it through this & are so lucky she made it out as She was the last to be evacuated in her senior community & had no idea there was even a fire until at 9:30am someone banged on her door. Thank God he did— I am going to find him and hug him.
She is heartbroken & emotional tonight- I think we all are- but she is a survivor. She is 73 years old & Just in this last year she beat stage 4 cancer... TWICE. Camp Fire doesn’t have anything on her because she is already the ultimate survivor❤️ AND SHE IS #ParadiseStrong !!!!
Haze over the Bay.... a somber landing as we stared in awe aware that we would soon be breathing in the ferocity of the fires... I remember flying into this beloved city as a child.. peering to peek at the Pacific and imagining we would land directly into the water before meeting the runway.... The exhilaration of spending time on the west coast where the father I rarely got to see would spoil us with ice cream for breakfast, music festivals and beach days solidified California as the ultimate dream... Now exemplary of an overheated pitta body at the height of an outbreak, the pressures placed upon our beautiful earth are presenting, wreaking havoc as the imbalance prevails... #sanfrancisco#wellbeing#ayurveda#prayforcalifornia#californiawildfires#pittaimbalance#nature#norcal#haze#sfbay#pitta
First time trying mocajete today @taqueriagaribaldi in Roseville! Weren’t too sure about the cacti. 🌵🌵Do we eat them? 🤷♀️ Are they a garnish? Maybe just infusing flavor? 🤔 We decided not to worry about them because the succulent shrimp, chorizo, steak and veggies were more than enough for the both of us. 😍 Plus homemade tortillas?! (Let’s not talk about my super burrito that’s not in the pic 🤣) Yeah, put it this way, we didn’t go home hungry. 🌮 If you haven’t tried this sweet taqueria yet you’re missing out on a local treasure!! #roseville#rosevilleca#ilovemexicanfood#ilovetacos#sacramento#norcal#cali#california#mexicanfood
Because I'm not doing anything cool tonight (but what's new?) #fbf to this amazing trip. I broke the rules to hug this massive tree and it was worth it. I haven't been here in 4 years and have been itching to go back. Hoping for a trip soon! To me, there's nothing like the northern coast, next to these breathtaking redwoods. 🌲#pacificnorthwest#redwoodforest#treehugger
