There is a local chocolatier here. Amazing really that we have such a thing. It is the height of luxury on such a rainy, gloomy day to go and pick out a single chocolate truffle to have with a hot cup of tea. Today I picked out one for each of my interns as well. This is contentment.

Gloomy Day Luxury
It's been rainy and foggy for days now, the fog hanging so low over the mountains that they disappear and the ocean is shrouded in mist. When it lifts a little, ever so little, the clouds have the appearance of being stuck on the mountains, which, is actually what they are, so laden with moisture they cannot lift themselves over the peaks. It's gotten colder already. No more 60F (16C) degree days and I noticed the other day that it is almost dark at 10pm now. It feels like early autumn.
