Now for the Rewards part of today's post: it's the beauty of a day like today for those of us who live in Tucson year-round. Sunny, 75 degrees--on January 29th. I mean, just look at this sky:

Yes, the sky is that blue at 4PM in January.
Here's looking toward the front yard:

Sorry if you're in a snowy, slimy, cold place right now. Trust me, we pay for this in July, August, and September, and Mother Nature's fees are steep. It will be so hot come the end of June, the blue of the sky seems bleached white. So yes, this time of year is our reward to sweating it out all summer. It's been a fantabulous week of weather this delightful, and the forecast is for much of the same in the days ahead. I spent the weekend potting plants and playing in the dirt. It was glorious. Reveling in the sunlight without frying to a crisp in ten minutes is marvelous. I'm going to treasure every moment of a winter such as this.
