We had been without rain here for such a long time now. The Boy said it rained briefly one night while I was out of town last week. I however, had not seen a drop of rain in almost a month. I was so happy to awake to wet streets this morning (but from a mere drizzle), even though rain was not and is not in the forecast for the next week. I find the rain cleansing and soothing, and my parched, dusty back yard and big wilting trees are crying out for it. Photograph of rainy Paris streets via lookbook.
I'm so excited to tell everyone that Little Gray Pixel has has extended 20% off all purchases from her Etsy shop to readers of The Cottage Cheese! (See her photographs featured in this post). V's comment: "Thanks so much for this oh-so-flattering writeup. I'd like to extend a 20% off offer on anything in my shop to you and your readers for the next week. Simply type "cottagecheese" in the notes during checkout and wait for an updated invoice with the correct amount. Thanks again!" Wow, many thanks to you V!
