Well the weather outside is frightful indeed, but the fire – if we hadn’t knocked down our chimney to be seismically safe and could still have one inside – would be so delightful indeed.
Our halls are totally decked and cozified, and we’re juuust about ready to start enjoying our holiday season.
Which is good, because outside, we here in the San Francisco Bay Area are experiencing what we’re now referring to as…
We got our first official “rain day” yesterday – Trent, Lisa, and Sammy tucked in cozy around the tree working from laptops – while Mother Nature dumped almost as much rain on us in 24 hours as we’ve had in the last three winters combined.
We have a small pond now in our back yard! Maybe some ducks will move in for Sammy to kill?
Wish we could stay tucked in from now on (save for Mexico, of course), but we’ve got one more week of hell to go… And no whining, anyway. We’ll gladly brave the deluge, no matter how gnarly it gets.
Here’s to an epic 21 more inches, hopefully, and a drought-busting 2015!
PS – Our rain barrel is full!
