absolutely LOVE that it is raining today. and not just for a few hours and then it stops, but an all-day long kind of rain. We could definitely use the rain too.
but they just issued an evacuation for the canyons where they had the recent wild fires in Orange County. go figure, first fires then floods. an neverending cycle of nature.
Mike and I just so happened to both be off today, so we spent a few hours out and about: breakfast and browsing at Ikea, gift card usage at Crate and Barrel, gas at Costco, then snacks from Trader Joe's.
I spied these mini red Dutch ovens at C&B too, that I sooooo wanted to buy. We got the larger, normal cooking sized one as a wedding gift. how cute would a little family of Dutch ovens be?
an afternoon nap ensued once we got home, a trip to the gym for Mike and now he's off to a family gathering of sorts. one of his mom's uncles passed away last night and they are having a mass tonight at another uncle's house. the whole thing is really really sad. liver failure led to pneumonia which then led to kidney failure...something like that. but he's in a much better place now, so we must be thankful of that.
I started brainstorming a miniBook idea last night and will start on it tonight. really simple concept, nothing too complicated and will simply be titled "from the tabletop". stay tuned for more details...
