There was a massive fire in my town last night (about 2 miles away from me) and I took this photo shortly after it started. I love the way the smoke blends in with the colors in the sky. Beauty from ashes. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in the fire. #gilbertfire

My #fridayreads is this powerful book of short stories by American women writers. The stories I've read so far have been stunning. My favorite - "A Jury of Her Peers" by Susan Glaspell.

Pueblo has gobs of cute old houses - the town is just a goldmine if you like looking at early 20th century architecture. My cousin drove me around to look at houses while I was there and this house really stood out to me. It's so unique and striking! #pueblocolorado #dreamhouse

This sci-fi thriller is pure entertainment! It's fast paced, engrossing and will appeal to both men and women. I surprised myself by liking it. 😬 It will be released on July 26. #darkmatter #blakecrouch #hotsummerbooks

I have a rare Tuesday off and am taking advantage of my freedom to read "The Summer Before the War" by Helen Simonson. I'm reading it in large print because the holds list at the library was shorter than for the regular print. 🤓
