We've actually had some rain. The hills aren't grey anymore. I don't expect it to last, but it's nice.



Free water, from the sky? What's the catch? )

It rained the other night. For at least a minute. Very exciting. We actually got our first rainstorm since February on Halloween night. We were watching World War Z, a scary zombie movie, and then after it finished, he went to play Archeage and I went to write an outline, having decided at the last minute to do Nanowrimo again.

Then the power went out. My first thought of course was zombies. But then we could hear the rain...

Anyway, pictures. We have woodpeckers on our street. A whole clan of them.


woodpeckers! )

Toast and jam in the morning, silvery light:



A most splendid weekday vice. Cherry jam on homemade wheatberry bread.

also there were quail )

Lots to talk about. That's what happens when you forget to update.

I like baking. Have I mentioned? It gets hot -- really hot -- later in the year so I've been using every excuse to do baking now, while the weather is still nice and we can run the oven without feeling guilty.



Foccacia (cheese required, per my husband) can be made when you're getting dinner ready and you realize there isn't nearly enough time to make bread but you still would like some. Fresh and homemade and fluffy, it's quite tasty.

It was chilly and foggy for a couple days... and I thought it might be... but no. Fall is still like a month and a half off. Usually the heat gives up around Halloween.

This little bird... hit our sliding glass door. The poor thing spent a good hour afterward, blinking slowly and panting right outside, before it recovered and flew away. I was just glad it was okay.
