A Small Break from the Rain

It has been raining and raining and raining for the last two weeks!! My goodness. And it's raining again today. BUT, at least it didn't rain over the weekend, which gave me a moment to actually enjoy the outdoors and run a 5K for charity.

Rain sucks, especially when you're a spoiled San Diegan like me that basks in near perfect weather most of the year. But here's what doesn't suck about rain:
- There's a drought in SoCal, so we can definitely use the water
- You can turn the sprinklers off and save on your water bill
- Your plants get a nice deep watering for the year (including all those blasted weeds)
- Your grass gets nice and tall!

Especially that last one...the grass being tall. Because it's been raining so much this month, the boy next door has not been over to mow the lawn, and it is as long as it's been since we moved into this house. Plus, all the brown patches have really greened up!! Look at it!
