Although the fires still burn seemingly unabated here in San Diego, I decided to post a photo that I have titled "Portrait of the Flu." Please note the bag o' snotty tissues. And the semi-trashy reading material . . . Tina Brown presents all the sordid details about Princess Diana. And the tuberoses smell heavenly. What you can't see is a sweet bundle of Tallulah Mae on the bed (ahem) to keep me company.
To all our sweet friends and family: We are safe here where we live, and the weather seems to be perhaps easing so that firefighters can catch a break and get a handle on the situation. Fingers crossed, please.
