It finally rained. This is a very strange winter, to say the least. We hardly had any precipitation here in Northern California in all November and December, which is very unusual and – honestly – very bad for California. We need our snow pack in the Sierras. Not just for selfish reasons (like wanting to go snowboarding again one of those weekends), but mostly for water sustainability.
So, to finally see rain falling down from the sky was a big relief. It’s been pretty chilly the last few days, too, and that gave me the excuse to snuggle up on the couch with my book and
a cup copious amounts of hot tea.
We did have to run a bunch of errands Friday and Saturday (laundry and the usual runs to various stores), but also had some time to watch movies and to meet a friend (from Germany) for coffee yesterday. It was really nice to catch up.
Other good things this weekend:
a long phone talk with my sister ♥ getting laundry done ♥ warm, fresh bread ♥ warm socks ♥ pizza & wings ♥ sitting on our back porch enjoying the rain ♥ sleeping in ♥ scoring the #twookclub book for February on a book swapping website ♥ watching “Black Swan” ♥
How was your weekend, peeps?
