Greetings from my weekend

What is that? Blue sky? Where have you been hiding? I have totally been missing the sunshine in SoCal. We've been hit with May Gray, the usual June Gloom and now we made it all the way through July with only a handful of sunny days. I feel depleted of energy and of warm summer sun. Saturday started with the gloomiest gray drizzle and my girlfriend and I made fun of the vacationers hauling their loads to the beach while we sipped hot coffee and trolled garage sales. We thought there was no way the thick marine layer would clear but it did. And, suddenly I have energy again... and a new cappuccino machine... and a pale green kimono.
