EDM 87 My lunch - Pizza
It's been a weird day. My husband headed out to work around 5:00 am this morning. Unable to sleep much past that, I turn on the radio to learn there was a chemical explosion in Apex, NC. I make my way to the phone to call him on his cell; apparently he doesn't have it on, but I leave a message, and crawl back to bed to listen to more news. Half hour later, he calls me to say Apex is being evacuated and he's in a dilly of a traffic jam, but he's heading back home. The fire, he tells me, is less than 1/4 mile from where he works!
One and a half hours later, he finally makes his way home through the dark and rain ... and we sit in front of the TV with mugs of coffee and learn that the chemical recycling plant, Environmental Quality, has had an explosion, and there's a chemical cloud of something hovering over the city. Folks were evacated and the rain was helping drop the particulate matter to the ground instead of having the wind carry it elsewhere. No one's been hurt -- thank heavens -- but tonight folks are still unable to return to their homes and the air and water quality folks are still conducting their tests.
And so, having an extra day with my sweetie, we have a day of rest -- the rain giving us the perfect excuse to do no weeding, no major home jobs, no anything more than take a few naps and catch up on our rest after the last very busy weekends.
I decide to finally sketch my lunch for the day -- PIZZA (since I have more than one slice available!! LOL)-- and being home, I am able to eat a slice while I sketch my 'challenge.'
