This view sure did put a smile on my face today.
See, we’ve had a super brown and smoggy August unfortunately. The smoke from several California wildfires have been blowing into our little valley. It’s been hot and yucky. But out of the blue (ha) today I noticed… hey, blue skies! It was warm, clear and blue. Me and the kids were headed back to the house after getting a couple groceries this morning and I randomly pulled over to snap this pic from the side of the street. There aren’t many open lots left in our bustling little city anymore, but this is one of them. And look at that view. Pretty majestic for a mid-morning in late summer.
