It rained yesterday, looked totally dark and depressing, and we had flash flood warnings last night. I wasn't happy, considering my house backs up to a creek. But, though it rained in the mountains and on most of the island, we didn't get a lot here. Not enough to make the creek rise even by half, thank heavens.

Tonight, we're going to Kaneohe for dinner with some friends. Should be fun. The restaurant is supposed to have a great view. I love great views.

While out and about yesterday, stopped in the library and ran across a copy, for sale, of Freya Stark's A Winter in Arabia. It still had the Borders' tag on the back: $16.95. I paid fifty cents. The book doesn't look like it was ever read. Yet another tome for my towering TBR pile. 🙂
