my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

So. Is It Supposed to Rain Some More?

Kind of a not-so-funny joke, here in the Rainy City where we're used to it. But 24 days in a row?

Our webbed feet are mossy.

And today I forgot to wear perfume.

I know, not a large deal by global standards. But I found myself feeling a little panicky ... until I caught a whiff of Regina Harris Rose Maroc wafting up toward me. I looked around wildly and thought I was hallucinating (pretty bad when you need perfume that badly) until I realized it was my watchband! My leather watchband absorbed some of the oil the last time I wore it ...

Whew. That was close.

We did have a cloud break long enough for the golden orb to appear briefly before my seared eyes, tell me it was real, please, I beg of you, it wasn't just a hallucination, was it?

We thought about you when we saw that on the news about the rain

Great painting! I thought of you too, when my husband called me to tell me the news about your rain. But I thought "Oh, those news people blow everything out of proportion - it's probably just a little drizzly every day and they're counting it." Not so, it seems. I'm so sorry!

Go put on some perfume. Something sunny.

Mireille without perfume? EGAD! It is like the bohemian without huge hoop earrings! I feel for you my friend, I really do!

24 days of actual rain or just cloudy days? meh. I always liked it. It let me wear my killer rain gear that always got people's attention.

that was a near miss. Next time you will be reported to the Perfume Police. You will be very, very sorry!

Mireille,
I do believe Dan is calling into question our ability to determine the difference between cloudy and rainy weather.
Would you like to address that, or shall I?
mutter mutter...lived in washington practically my whole life I think I know the difference between having water suspended in the atmosphere and having fall on my head!... mutter mutter.

You know, they even said it was raining in Seattle on the UK weather news the other day. They do that from time to time - tell us our UK weather and then tell us the weather in Australia, or Thailand, or Russia, or Florida. And not because it's particularly extraordinary, they just seem to stick a pin in the map. I've never understood why.
