The Missions: San Francisco and San José

merry Christmas!

the season is progressing well. the town hasn't been too loud and the weather pleasant, if a little warm for Christmas (it's 85.3 currently). we just need to get through jan 6th and then things will return to normal, although the bishop is arriving on the 7th, so there you have that...
