Turns out I was not being unusually cranky about the weather ... Girl-child told me that May 2013 was the rainiest month EVER! I am happy to report some blue sky and sun have been spotted.
I must say, living on the edge of the barrio has some surreal moments. This display in Target made me do a double-take; reminds me of markets in Mexico. Who knew we could have such a selection here? Not so long ago you wouldn't have been able to find one of these candles to save your soul (hehe - get it?)
