Smoky

So, the haze that hung about yesterday and is back today turns out to be smoke from the fires near Redding. Smoke too thin to be smelled, thick enough to be visible. It gives everything a yellow cast, and makes me nostalgic for Los Angeles. And, the day is very hot. At least I have lots of iced tea. I've taken to making it with a combination of Celestial Seasonings Black Cherry Berry, Tangerine Orange Zinger, and ordinary Orange-Pekoe, all sweetened, as usual, with apple cider and black cherry juice. I'm going through a quart or so every afternoon. It's one of the very best things about summer. If I get burned out of my house, I'm taking my tea with me.
