  1. Yesterday
  2. i *SEE* you

    oooh the colours on the heather at that point so the weather went at least you were sort of prepared
  3. i *SEE* you

    it was relly weird - it was warm and sunny in that slightly hazy autumnal way, and then it made … "whooooosh" and was it kept looking pretty for a while, too, as the rain fell sunlit over the still slightly violet erica and then it was just wet. the capes are just in case of a shower, not for seriously bad weather.
  4. that is so pretty!
  5. i *SEE* you

    oh my, that sudden change of weather was not a fun surprise nor ineffective rainwear
  6. i *SEE* you

    i'm sure Jette will forgive you, Moo - but you WILL have to work for it. It DOES sound like strange weather, too. Plus a long, wet ride home Good that Mad had better luck
  7. Since we all can post stuff WITHOUT Pfktbkt It's been a looooooooooooooooong time since i came up with an "abstract" i.e. accident/mistake, so here goes:
  8. i *SEE* you

    we went for a walk to one of the smaller heaths south of the city and got soooooo wet … Jette was not amused. It had been dripping a bit when we got there (it is a 45 min train and bus ride) but cleared up … but when we stood enjoying the view of the hazy sunshine on the heather, there suddenly was a whooshing sound from behind and we stood under a rainbow in a downpour (the rain clouds had come up behind us and against the wind, very strange) We out our rain capes on and tried to wait it out under one of the bigger trees, but eventually had to go and find the fastest way back to the bus … the capes were not really waterproof after a while, either. we had a very grumpy little dog on the way home. Now she could dry her ears and eat her food and is asleep. We might be forgiven.

  18. Reading Frenzy

    Ahem, when i have finished the Lewis books (i'm on the last of them) i will make it a point to "review" what i bought from the Mystery store here
  19. Reading Frenzy

    It hit me when i took a second look at what i had brought home, and realized that, while i might have bought one or two at the original price, i would have looked at the others, and put them back on the shelf. Since the 30th is the last day for the store, everything has been marked down by 75%. Sigh. On the bright side, they had already TOTALLY sold out of all the souvenir type thingees - mugs and the like, with their name on them. A lot of people will miss the place.
  20. look!

    VERY impressive - for any age!
  21. look!

    stumbled across this on Facebook, but the post disappeared once I tried to go back to it: It is a 12 year old artist's work his website is here
  22. Reading Frenzy

    yes, i think you are right.
  23. Reading Frenzy

    Yesterday, i went back over to Seattle, because i did want to spend some time at the mystery bookstore (i did, as well as some $$s). Sadly, ANOTHER bookstore i used to go to all the time, a sort of New-Age but very good one, had also gone out of business. Part of the problem in that location is traffic and what seems like endlessly torn-up streets, since several other businesses in the vicinity had closed. It did occur to me, though, that part of the problem was the publishing industry's decision to create and sell the "trade paperbacks" i.e. larger and extortionately priced versions of the old affordable "pocket books". When a paperback book started costing at least twice what it used to, i think a lot of us, myself included, started being a lot more cautious about what we bought, or waited until something came out in the newly titled "mass market paperbacks". Which a lot of stuff never did. OR we started to buy used books. Which helped the hole-in-the-wall little used bookstores quite a bit, but I think started really hurting the other bookstores. Sigh.
