I love the sound of the rain. Growing up in Houston, I have an affinity for dark skies and thunderstorms, and to this day, the sound of rain steadily falling outside my window reminds me of home. These past fews days in Washington have been miserably rainy. It makes me want to curl with a huge cup of coffee (maybe with a shot of amaretto) and read a mystery novel. Because rain isn’t nearly as fun when you have to swim through puddles to get to work.
I was lazily lounging in bed last night and listening to the rain outside my window. Like March, April was a crazy month, and the sound of the rain was calming and soothing. Everyone once and a while you just need a moment to step back and appreciate the moment. But, despite the crazy schedules and unpredictable day-to-day here in DC, I am addicted to the energy of this city. The coffee and the food don’t compare to Seattle, but DC certainly has its own charm.
Unfortunately, life lately hasn’t left a lot of time for blogging (or cooking) although it does leave a lot of time for living. But, I’m still determined. I love my little piece of the internet. Plus, it is almost Cinco de Mayo (more guacamole please!!), and I really want to share a margarita recipe. And I promised to share a lot of things last month that still haven’t made their way to the blog. I’m working on it. May is a new month; hopefully, I’ll have some more time to spend here.
Hasta luego friends. Thank you for your patience.
