a seam of yellow
This month’s edition of Click!, brought to you by bee and jai of Jugalbandi, features Yellow as its theme. Yellow, more specifically, for Bri. With the help of the wider community, bee and jai are banding together to raise funds for Bri's battle with cancer. They have very nearly reached their target. Accordingly, that cheerful seam of yellow, there at the top, is my entry.
What could be more cheerful than bunches of organic rainbow chard for $1.99 each? I’ve arranged (well, alright, plonked) them in jars and vases around the house. Those impossibly bright colours are perfect fodder for The Artist.

There’s a tonne of work to plough through, and way more to come, but the task itself is cheerful enough.
Those nice people at Mealopedia have been sifting through and highlighting some older posts, things I had (very nearly) forgotten.
A project, something else very nearly forgotten - something offline, you know, out there in the real world - has been reactivated.
Yesterday’s salad of very thin shavings of celery (those tender, pale, inner stalks), fennel, witlof and two wee turnips made a startlingly good lunch. Dressed with teeny, tiny capers; the last of the hazelnut oil and a few fresh walnuts, toasted and broken up.
To top things of very nicely, it’s raining. Finally. Soakingly. I feel like dancing.
