Sometimes it Rains in Southern California
Yes, even in our drought ridden years, we get occasional rain. Yesterday was one of those days. I was able to enjoy the rain from the relative dryness of my parent’s “palapa” a tiny patio at the back of the yard that they enclosed with redwood and filled with plants and cute patio furniture. I’ll have to get a photo of that palapa someday soon. My sister came by as well, and although she was making work calls (she is a wine consultant), we were able to relax and catch up a bit.
My uncle, EJ was also in town for a few days, and it was so nice to visit with him. He is such a fun, fun uncle, but we only see him every few years. When I was a child, I thought he was the most romantic and dashing figure, a bit like Erroll Flynn in my mind’s eye.
