It was a crazy evening yesterday with hail and tornado action and rain and wind and tieing it all together was an amazing quality of turbulent light and luminous, dynamic clouds. Quite beautiful to just enjoy it for what it was. Back to the cafe, it is Monday and whether you are ready or not, the sun is shining, the coffee's brewed and our 9-5's have just started. We have a lot going on this week and so much to look forward to as April unwinds and flourishes. Thanks for taking the time to take in the blog and if you want you can become a "Follower" to show how many folks care about the Bean and the Blog.
