Thursday after work at the counseling center we had to run some errands in another part of Los Angeles. Before we knew it had become dark and it was time to eat.
We decided on a quick bite at Chili's, but it was not so quick.
To our amazement, there was a waiting line of 20 minutes. We first couldn't figure out why so many people were eating out, because this was the middle of the week.
Later we realized that it might be because for one and a half week everyone had been cooped up inside because of the rain. This extremely long for California! The first day that it was dry, it was still pretty quiet in the streets (great without the noise of traffic!!)
Then I guess "everyone" had the same idea, such as picking up with city life: running errands, go for a cup of coffer or eating out, a movie, etc.
Something joyful is that after the rain everything is so green and the dust taken off. You can see it also gave the flowers by my front door a blooming spurt.
The first reflection is on the same flooded parking lot as I posted last week, but in this pic it's more visible that it is indeed a parking lot. Wishing you a great and dry week, bloggie friends!
