Tuesday Finds: November Rain

The weather and I haven't been on very good terms lately. In fact, I suspect the weather is trying to do me in.

Two recent pieces of evidence come to mind in support of my theory:

1) Yesterday started out quite ok. There was even enough sunlight to take a few nice sun-touched photos for the shop. However, I had some errands in town in the afternoon. As soon as I got as far from our place as I intended to go that time, a rather impressive rain began and lasted until I got back home. No umbrella, of course. I was cruelly tricked.

2) In the evening I went to see a friend and had to take the bus. This time I was prepared, though, and brought my umbrella. All was well until I got on the bus and couldn't change my mind about going out anymore. Yup, more rain. By the time I got to my stop, from where I still needed to walk the last kilometer or so to get to my destination, it was as if someone was pouring water out of a giant bucket in the sky. Wild, stormy winds completed the experience. My poor little umbrella didn't stand a chance against that kind of assault.

Pretty convincing, isn't it? As I need to go grocery shopping today, I decided to dedicate this week's Tuesday Finds to rain in a meager effort to placate the crotchety weather. (Do you hear that, rain clouds? I'm being nice. You might want to try it some time too.)

Now this is what I like to see! I am firmly of the opinion that we need more clouds like this around here. Perhaps I should show this print by Argyle Whale to the ones lurking outside, to let them see what the cool kids are up to these days.

Who wouldn't want to take Clear Jade Studio's cute cat print home? You poor, poor kitty, I know exactly how you feel.

Despite my troubles with rain and clouds, I must admit I adore the shape of smallwhitepebble's Cloudery freeform crochet necklace.

Rain clouds be gone! The weather here today is crazy too. Rain, sun, rain, sun...just wish it would make up its mind!

I like your Tuesday finds :)

so funny, now that we live somewhere that it doesn't rain very often, I miss it terribly. Out last year on the east coast, it rained 18 weekends in a row.
LOVE that drenched kitty!
