I'm so sorry to hear this. Being evacuated would be terrifying.
Is the Pacific Palisades fire still burning?
I realize the fire in Sonoma is very bad now.
Stay safe, y'all.

Venture up into Topanga Canyon, see Pepperdine U, Laurel Canyon, Getty Brentwood for its views & architecture (when it's not compromised with fires)

Thanks for the kind thoughts and words I'm well. Received the Warning Evacuation text on Monday early morning around 3AM.

I couldn't see any fires from the backyard so I walked to the front and still couldn't see anything. I couldn't smell smoke either --- the text seemed overkill.
The tall trees from my neighbors blocked a lot but when I stood on a chair I saw the glowing orange flames. All of it. Still not too monstrous from a distance but close enough to finish packing. In an hour another Nixle text came in and this time the alert upgraded to Mandatory Evacuation. GAME TIME

Tried to wake up the neighbors before driving off but they were already awake some nerves on high alert while others are nonchalant not taking it seriously inevitably putting others at risk especially the very people doing the saving.

So incredibly grateful to everyone moving us forward and to all the first responders and firefighters who continue to risk their lives to save our structures and ultimately our lives!
Please download the Nixle alert it's very helpful aside from watching the news and having the LAFD website. I'm actually pretty blown away by the technology and warning alerts today and wish everyone would abide by them for full effectiveness.

The Sonoma fires have been heart breaking too another place with people near and dear to my heart. So over these fires. Has it always been this way or am I just noticing it more since moving closer to nature?? That's one of the reasons for the move Christina -- slightly more space for work, nature, ocean. Years in the concrete jungle of LA makes you not worry too much about fires.

Back in business no more fires. What other juxtapositions?

H​​​​​​There aren't enough female filmmakers compared to their male counterparts and also female composers. What's up with that?

Sunnin Lebanese Cafe in Westwood (another location in Santa Monica) is one of my all time go to no fail restaurants in LA. They have really great garlic puree that is a must if you go! Has anyone been?

How about Vespertine --- looks so amazing.

How do you post a picture here -- I did it before under a different username.

Aha! I locked down the restaurant for my 20th year in LA celebration

Providence
I can't believe I'm going full circle with this restaurant. I was very curious about it years and years ago but never went then just kind of forgot about it but not really. Turns out it's the same owner as Connie and Ted's! That's where I've been going for my lobster rolls. Lobster rolls are serious matter especially when you're keeping your cholesterol levels in check

Rain finally arrived. My entire backyard smells like mint and the green baby lemons are busting out all over the branches. Anyone have a good lemon recipe?
