IN MEMORIAM: TOMATOES

Quimper weather, Monday 5th September 2011: Heavy rain early morning, cloudy rest of morning, sunshine afternoon, cloudy evening, midday 22°. This morning Tuesday there is a lot of wind and it rained during the night.

I made a sale in my etsy shop this morning! Only a tiny one, but I’m pleased about it.

It’s a week’s worth of washable, crocheted eye make up remover pads, comfortable to use (this is what I use to take my eye make up off with just warm water), economical and ecological. Funnily enough, last night I just finished making another set in sort of raspberry ripple colour.

There are no more tomatoes in the garden, all rotted and gone with the bad weather, but I did a watercolour before it was too late. Entitled “Tomatoes and dandelions”. Now I’m better at oils than watercolour, but I’m progressing. You can see they are tomatoes (Yves thought they were cherries… in French, we call that mauvaise foi).

About OneFrenchWord

I was a professional linguist and have been a life-long foodie. I am now lucky enough to be retired and free to roam the beaches around my home at the tip of the Finistère (Brittany, France). Writing is occupying a larger place in my life, with this blog and a children's book in preparation. I shall feel much happier calling myself a writer when I have published a book. And so posts on OneFrenchWord will be published first as an e-book, my ambition being to see a glossy volume on French language and cuisine in print some day. So keep reading, and snap up the book when it appears!
