Emmental

I had a postcard from my friend Patrick today, saying that he liked the sketch of the stapler, and that was very encouraging. Also he tells me he has found a new venue for our coffee mornings in Hexham and I am very excited about that. I think he was writing from one of our cities of great historical interest, but it was good to know that his teenage daughter has the proper attitude to these things and pushed off to buy some clothes in Top Shop.

It has been raining hard today. No doubt the ordinary folk living in the cities that have had rioting youths in the streets will be glad of wet weather; it should damp things down a bit, literally.

I was poking around the kitchen, looking for something to draw, when I discovered a kiwi fruit that I had bought the other day. It was hiding behind some tomatoes. I had meant to use the it to garnish the orange sorbet I made for my friends Roy and Ann on Monday. I thought, with the fresh whole strawberries on top, the colours would be rather jolly: orange, red and green. Still, we did get orange and red, and that was good.

Anyway, as you can see above, I found the remains of a long slab of Emmental and so this has been the subject of today’s still life. I hope you like it.

Now, perhaps I should give an update to my lovely SL music fans. The laptop is still away being mended and, being realistic, it probably will be for another week. Although I can do the bare mininum on my little netbook here, there is no way I can stream up my music with it. I have really missed playing my shows. I practiced piano early this morning and I shall probably play a bit of guitar later today, just to keep my hand in. Hopefully, things will be back to normal in about 10 days. I shall be sure to announce when I play my next gig both here and on my giglist page on the Lewis Music website.

So, I seem to be rambling on rather a lot today. I had better stop and make myself some lunch. Speak to you later, my dear blogophiles.
