The biggest deal of the last few days is that Sierra is "home"! She is one of our teammates who will be living with us over the next few weeks. It has been so great to have her around. I appreciate her insights, humor, and easy-going personality more than I can explain. I think we feel significantly less alone now that we're digesting our days with someone outside our miniature family of 2. She's a lovely, confident, Navajo woman. She's full of great ideas and life, and I feel priviledged to have her in my home.
On another topic, I was wrong about the rain. It does rain here. Sort of. This morning we woke up to a barely visible mist. Since parts of our house are more outdoors than in, it's made for a kind of yucky day.
