Christmas Eve update

Quick update from San Diego... I'm writing this from my in-laws' study, where I can look out the window and over the valley, a lush green hill covered with avocado trees across the way. A nice setting for a little LJ. Monday it rained, the clouds cutting off our view; yesterday was sunny and beautiful. The big family gathering was yesterday, and it was good. Tasty food, some good conversations with T's cousins, played a trivia game with the group and got to show off my superpower. Now we're mostlly having a quiet day at home. It's overcast and a little chilly -- I've spent much of the afternoon curled up by the fire, reading an old Newsweek, the one with the complete presidential campaign coverage. Interesting read, although a lot of it is old news to me, the blog junkie.

Tomorrow we fly home, hopefully -- another rainstorm is blowing in. Wish us luck.

Good to hear your trip is going well! The view sounds lovely, too.

It's been blustery today, but hardly any rainfall. Gorgeous sky and clouds, though.

We are due rain and warmth. You on the West Coast are really getting it from the weather gods. Have a safe trip back to your beautiful city and Happy Holidays.
