Sky and sky.

Yesterday was another trip into Aix, this time the clothes market – a blue sky day, I bought a cheap hat to keep the sun off and 3 more magnets for the collection. Had an economy salad Niçoise for lunch and congratulated myself that such a fresh tasty meal was so cheap – then ruined it all, including the low calorie count, by indulging myself in the decadent delight of “La Belle Hélène” a (mmmm)Mõvenpick sundae – cost as much as the salad and a drink together! Swiss perfection confection – vanilla and chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce and pear – a L’Oreal moment, because I’m worth it …

It does rain in the south of France and following heavy overnight wetness which continued, tho’ starting to abate somewhat, throughout this morning. I postponed today’s planned 12k walk through the parc naturelle to the next village via a lake and the windmill Cezanne famously painted. Instead this very grey sky, dripping morning was spent dry and cosied up in R0X1 knitting the lace shawl I intend to wear to some friends wedding – yes that’s yours Linda and Trevor. Haven’t anything to wear with the shawl but I’m looking … promise!

In the late 70’s, early 80’s a group of session and classical musicians fronted by the classical guitarist John Williams got together and funked up Bach’s toccata, it was such a  successful recording BBC TV broadcast a gig from a London church where they also performed some of their own stuff.  They went on to make several albums and toured. I saw a couple of their gigs and bought most if not all of their albums – a very original take on rock classical fusion. Thanks to my new iPad and bluetooth speaker I’ve been reacquainting myself with and knitting along to – Sky.
