Rain warming.





Its raining today. It rained yesterday. There's fair chance that it will rain tomorrow. The builders working on the roof across the road are wearing oilskins and every photo I take is edged with grey. A person has to try hard to find colour in this dripping world.

But I am trying. A chum brought me some of her Japanese Quinces, enough to fill one and a half tiny jars with jelly. As a time and motion exercise it fails at every turn but the smell of the kitchen and the pale orange glow of the jelly, shining like a weak winter sun made every minute count.

It was raining on Monday morning when I walked to the Doctors to get my (not swine) flu injection and as I stuffed my hands into the pockets of my coat I found two ear plugs and a crumpled gathering of paper streamers. The reason? A Sunday night adventure with The Flaming Lips. Joyous, openhearted and absolutely colourful. Have a look at the little Youtube clip for details. The sound quality is rough but the images are perfect.

Ah, it's been gray and rainy here, too.

Lap cat weather.

I completely forgot about the quinces this year - must see if they are somewhere out there. Love that special orange of quince jelly!

It is grey and dreary here too--oh how I miss the sun. We don't get quinces here. Your quince photos are so tempting. yum

i always wondered what a quince was-confused me as a child in that book-the owl and the pussy cat!
