Autumn rain..



After weeks of horrible humid weather we have had a little autumn rain to break the cycle. It makes me smile when the first drops fall after such a long dry spell, no matter how few drops there may be, the umbrellas go up.. perhaps if I was wearing such a pretty kimono I would have put up my umbrella too but the big burly chap to the left 😉Below a trip to the Re-Store, if you read the review, surprisingly in The New York Times, you will get an idea of why we were there and why of all the things I spotted while walking around, the biggest pic in the collage is of cheese. I admit to being a turophile, a fancier not a connoisseur :) How about you, can you resist a soft creamy brie? Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  1. I've never tried brie cheese.

    It's not warm enough here today for rain, let alone shorts or kiminos!

    While I have an umbrella at home, I haven't used it in years. A rainy day, I'll usually have a baseball cap on.

  2. Gorgeous kimono! I wonder if she was going to a special event?
    MMMMM Brie, delicious, in fact there isn't a cheese that I don't like. Oh perhaps all that manufactured rubbery stuff that is labelled "lite" always tastes like cardboard.

  4. I have never heard of a submarine sandwich!! I like any cheese, I am not particular, but if I had to pick a favourite I think I would go for a good British Stilton. The continental blues are good but thy do not have quite the same punch.
    We have umbrellas in the car and we never use them, easier to just pull up the hood as we would probably be wearing a coat if rain was around.
    Take care, cheers Diane

  5. Never had brie so I have no opinion. We got some hail happening today with a little sun. Weird weather going on.
    Nice header, Grace. It looks like a peaceful place to sit on the bench.

  6. Gotta have one of those sandwiches and a bit of Small Batch Bourbon. You visited for a bourbon? Nice piece in the NYT.

  7. I'm like you and I love cheese! I do try not to go overboard with it though. We have a bit of sun but it is only around +6˚C and windy so not the nicest day. At least it isn't snowing!

  9. I had not seen that review so thanks for the link. That looks like a delicious place to visit. I'd go home with a slab of that brie. That rain looks lovely.

  10. Great catch on the kimono.
    We were just remembering a sandwich we got in Paris for our flight home. Brie with fig jam on a perfect baguette. Heaven!

  11. In my area we hardly got wet :) I love all sorts of cheese too, could just live on cheese and crackers :)
    Lovely photos Grace.

  13. Oh, Grace, beautiful! In such temps I´d likely not use a brolly, though :-)
    Yes, real men can were such girly ones easily.

    :-) My first thought was, cheese in a second hand store?!
    Not sure about all the takeaway containers, but half and half sounds very good!
    Seems like a good place for lunch next time in Leederville.
    I´m hungry now for sure!

  14. I'm gagging on my gouda as I type. I must have used up my ten free NYT articles for the month. It isn't what you would call a terribly masculine umbrella the bloke is holding.

  15. Your new header is beautiful. I love autumn rain because it makes mushrooms grow and they are all so interesting to look at. I only like strong cheeses.

    Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

  17. We are coming out of a long, wet spell. And, by surprise, we had a bit of snow yesterday. It almost never snows here is April. That is a lovely assortment of photos today.

  19. Ohhh 'kimono' !!! ;)
    We Japanese call this is 'Yukata'.
    This Japanese garment as a casual ware in summer has a bathrobe origin.
