All Over Your Blues

We've been really busy lately. Out and about several times a day — in the constantly pouring rain.

San Geraldo hates the rain. San Geraldo hates the clouds. He hates the damp chill. His usually varied and interesting vocabulary has been reduced to the use of one adjective. "Frickin'" he mutters.

"I'm sick of this frickin' rain. I'm sick of these frickin' clouds. This frickin' weather sucks!!!"

Beginning Monday, it's supposed to be partly cloudy (or maybe it's partly sunny) for at least a few days before the "frickin'" rain returns.

I'm very happy about that. I'm frickin' sick of listening to San Geraldo complain. (And, OK, I'm getting frickin' sick of this weather, too).

(Click the images and find some frickin' hope on the horizon.)

SATURDAY AFTERNOON. MUDDY WATERS.
SUNDAY MORNING ON THE TERRACE.
SAN GERALDO FILLED A POT WITH A VARIETY OF AMARYLLIS.
THIS IS THE FIRST TO BLOOM.
THIS MORNING ON THE WAY TO COFFEE. A BRIEF BREAK IN THE RAIN.
(AND A MESS TO BE CLEANED UP ALONG THE SHORE.)
AND THEN THINGS SUDDENLY CHANGED.
THE REMAINS OF A DOUBLE RAINBOW THAT WELCOMED US HOME
AFTER A LATE LUNCH (IN THE POURING RAIN) WITH FRIENDS KRISTINA AND MATTI
(WHO PAINTED RAINBOWS ALL OVER OUR BLUES).

"I've been waitin' my time just to talk to you..."

      The first double rainbow I ever saw was in the late '80s on a drive with Jerry's grandparents. It was the perfect day of visiting childhood farms and listening to stories and it culminated with a sudden thunderstorm and a perfect double rainbow. The next time was while Jerry and I were driving to work in San Diego. Jerry's grandmother died that day after a long and loved life. So, I really really love double rainbows.

  2. Isn't the changing weather so much more intense when you are on the coast! I love it. Great photos. We were dry enough today for the first time in over a week to actually get some laundry out to dry on the line.

      So grateful for blue skies and sunshine today... I'm really thankful for the enclosed terrace; always a protected place to hang laundry now.

  3. Your Geraldo sounds like my hubby. Although it really has rained for almost 60 days straight (at some point in the day). I am frickin tired of listening to his frickin bitching about it :)

      It really does make for spectacular photos. Today's blue sky and sunshine is SO boring... but I am definitely NOT complaining!

      I took so many shots of the complete frickin' double rainbow but not one was worth sharing until the rainbow was nearly gone! Hope you're feeling better!

  6. Crooked clouds just can't stay away. Should be in jail. Very unfair.

      Honestly, I think this whole thing was a Chinese hoax.

  7. The way to look at a partly cloudy day is to say it's partly sunny.

  9. There's a beauty to rain, provided it isn't in too large an amount.

      I do love it, but this was an unusual number of days and an unusual amount of rain. According to the forecast, which is unreliable, we're supposed to have a few days of clouds and sunshine before the rain returns. It sure was nice to feel the sun shining through the windows today.
