It's actually raining in So Cal today - these photos were taken on Dec. 15th just before the first good rain of the season. The view is from the "upper pool" area of our complex looking at Malibu over the South Bay. The rain is welcome and after the views are spectacular with the snow on the mountains.
I am cooking all day today, it's our extended family's traditional Christmas meal - very much like Thanksgiving - turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and this year, cherry pie. All the dishes are pretty easy to cook and my sister-in-law cooks 1/2 of the meal.
Enjoy your day.
