Good Friday to you all. It’s very dark and raining heavily in Santa Barbara. Practically pea soup as I look out my window. Sunset was at 4:38pm yesterday-yuk ( I have a Sunrise/Sunset App.).I snapped this Instagram photo of the granite grey sea and sky yesterday morning. It made one want to just stay in bed with a frothy hot drink and a great book while a hearty stew simmered on the stove. I wish I could say I did just that, but I dihn’t.
The sky the night before was a good predictor of what was coming. I’m having fun with my Instagram App. Are you using it? Are you following moi? This is with no filters, just plain.
This morning there was a brief lull in the rain so I took a walk through the garden. Look at how gorgeous the trunk of the Cork Oaks get when they’re soaked through. I think these are such under-rated, beautiful trees. I wonder if Oprah has any on her property :)
Still with the roses… God bless em.
And can you believe it’s this time of year again?! The house is filled with the scent of drying orange slices for the Christmas tree.
It’s definitely this kind of day today. I’m staying in, staying dry & cozy and hopefully get some writing done.
Cocktail hour might even commence before 5. The weather made me do it.
PS. I took the above photo with the “Cinemagram” App.-it’s also fun, check it out.
Hey wait- did that just technically make this a “Friday Favourites” post?!!
Wishing you a wonder-filled weekend.
