California in January

It rained last weekend. Glorious, wonderful, plump droplets of water fell from the sky! For anyone who doesn’t live in California, you may be tired of all the wintry weather you’re encountering. But us drought-stricken Californians? LOVED it.

But that’s not what this post is about. You see, I was so excited about last weekend’s rain for a few reasons (all of them selfish, I might add). Here are my top five:

1. It did not rain a drop in January, and it is quite difficult to justify staying inside in your pajamas all day watching the rain when it is sunny and seventy degrees outside.

2. Whatever rain we can get might help get lake levels up so we can spend the 4th of July on the houseboat (if LA doesn’t steal it all first…).

3. Rainbows. Enough said.

4. Green hillsides are so much prettier than “golden” hillsides (golden sounds a lot better than brown, but we all know what I’m trying to say here).

5. California is thirsty. She told me so herself.

Enough of a rant about droughts  and rainy days. This post is actually about the lovely weather we had in January (surprise!). A few weeks ago, we spent a day at the beach in Seascape. In January. In shorts and t-shirts. Some people got sunburned.

Shorts, t-shirts, sunnies, and the sand a few steps away

The real reason behind the day trip was to celebrate my grandparents birthdays and anniversary. They are such wonderful people and have taught me so much, I won’t even try to put it into words. Let’s just say cheers to many more!

Love them :)

Love them 🙂

As much as we desperately need more water (and the forecast is looking mighty dry), I can’t help but be grateful to live in California and enjoy winter days like this. Not to mention the beachy, wintery sunsets.

    Thanks, Kaysea, for the beautiful sharing of your words, pictures of your family, and the beautiful surroundings there where you spent some time. Makes our 4 degrees outside today seem a bit warmer!

    Beth and Dick
