Happy weekend! It's raining here, which is super duper exciting and wonderful. It's not enough, but it's more water than we had yesterday. I feel lucky I got to enjoy it on my day off. I even braved the farmers' market.
Speaking of water, we haven't had any water related crisis this week, which is also wonderful. What's new with you?
