The weather here today was the opposite of the normal San Diego sunny weather and blue skies we have.
It was rainy, gloomy, windy, and one of those days you want to cross things off your to-do list inside, rather than doing things outside.
However, I did venture out for a few groceries.
The stores were such a zoo and the roads were a mess. 1/20th of an inch of rain and you’d think it was a flood or natural disaster. People here cannot drive in the rain.
I grew up in Minnesota and Chicago and I can drive a two-seater stick shift in 14 inches of snow and 40 mph winds while putting lipstick on in my rearview mirror and belting out 80s hits karaoke-style. I could probably talk on the phone and eat my drive-thru, too. Don’t you love it when you see people beyond multi-tasking in their car. Makeup application, phone calls, reading emails, sending texts. I want to remind them they are driving and that should be the priority but that’s another topic.
But in Southern California where the weather is ususally like this…
Driving on wet roads means accidents, chaos, and gridlock.
I enjoyed some at-home yoga.
And I also checked off a baking project off from my Weekend List.
Something along the lines of this…
…Was used to make something along the lines of these.
Baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts with Vanilla Peanut Butter Glaze taste even better on weekend days.
Especially when it’s gloomy and the peanut butter glaze is all melty and oozing down the warm donuts. You’ll forget about the rain.
What did you do on Saturday or what’s been the best part of your weekend so far?
What do you like to do when it’s gloomy, raining (or snowing) out?
