  1. People keep commenting to me about how nice the weather is, and I’m afraid I am Debbie Downer when I reply that it should be raining….. Blueberries are flowering now, and the road is dusty. When we’re suffocating in the summer from smoke and dire heat, I hope those folks realize what this “nice” weather means. xoxo
