My giant coffee mug was originally a fruit bouquet holder. Very practical. I think all bouquets should come in coffee mugs. Vases are so useless.


Martin and I woke up this morning not by the sound of our alarm clock, but of the monsoon blasting buckets of water at our windows. For a moment, I actually thought I was in a car wash.

Proof again that DC can’t do anything mildly, not even spring showers.

It was so loud!!! The wind wasn’t even that bad. It was just the intensity of the downpour. Fortunately, it’ll calm down before too long. I feel for those who left vehicle windows open.
