I never came to terms, or acclimatized, to this summer. Day after day in the 100's is something I never got used to this year.
But today it rained. Yes, in California! And the air is cooling. And after weeks and weeks of keeping the sun (heat) out of my home, I opened all the blinds today, and let the sun, breaking through the clouds, stream into the living room. It's the simple things that bring joy here this morning.
