It has been a long dry hot summer here in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the midst of one of the most severe droughts, yesterday's little rain was a delightful event. So much so that I could not resist the urge to enjoy the afternoon rain with a cup of hot milky tea and cake. So I did.
The smell of earth when it first rains is divine and so was my tea. Life's little pleasures. My buddy Maia seems to agree.
