Blue Lobsters and Songs and Kudos
I promised another rhubarb flower bouquet and will tomorrow but must post this photo instead today. Just moments after I posted yesterday and began stuffing cannelloni a friend dropped by. She is fishing lobster with her dad, a pretty heavy job for a woman. There are only the two of them on the boat. Whew! Anyway she brought me a big bag of lovely lobster and had in her possession this blue lobster. The buyers wouldn't buy it so she donated it to the vet college. She wasn't here long as she had to make it in before they closed. Blue Lobster are rare and I don't know much more about them than the shot explanation in the link but they're certainly cool to see in your kitchen unexpectedly.
I had an outing today. I drink and am thoroughly addicted to fresh roasted coffee and place my order in the morning. It is roasted and I pick it up, usually still warm an hour or so later. I visited a friend while I was in the neighbourhood. It's still raining. We get a couple of hours of sunshine every once in a while and it is promised today but while I was out it was raining. I got some sorely needed fresh photos. It's been hard to keep up all these photo blogs especially when I've had a physically limiting injury and all that prevented me from getting fresh photos this winter.
In the same vein, today I was listed in The Best Photo Blogs From Around the World. Pretty cool, eh? I'm listed at I Love Photo Blogs and will place a link in the sidebar in a couple of days or sooner. I'm honoured someone would think me in that vein.
For music the title song of one of the best ever albums, (not just by me but in measured lists), Blue, first by it's writer Joni Mitchell and by Sarah McLachlan is the song for today.
