It was raining heavily Tuesday afternoon when we drove to Plaza Mayor and McArthur Glen Outlet Mall. Not great for driving, but the rainbows that appeared were spectacular. It eased up (mostly) while we shopped. And, other than the Lindt chocolates that Alyson and I nearly overdosed on, Nick and I were the lucky ones when it came to shopping. Cologne at Rituals, clothes at Adidas. We might have stopped at the Starbucks in the outlet mall (it’s a great space) but, in the wind, one of the high-overhead canvas awnings got torn from its mooring. Starbucks sits in the center of that round plaza and was completely blocked off for safety reasons.
The cats have forgiven San Geraldo. Dudo, does however give him the side-eye. We’re all happy to be together again. Moose has a million-dollar smile. But, he refuses to smile for the camera.
Estaba lloviendo mucho el martes por la tarde cuando manejamos a Plaza Mayor y McArthur Glen Outlet Mall. No muy bueno para conducir, pero los arcoíris que aparecieron fueron espectaculares. Se alivió (principalmente) mientras comprábamos. Y, aparte de los chocolates de Lindt con los que Alyson y yo casi tomamos una sobredosis, Nick y yo éramos los afortunados cuando se trataba de ir de compras. Colonia en Rituals, ropa en Adidas. Puede que nos detuviéramos en el Starbucks del centro comercial (es un gran espacio) pero, con el viento, uno de los toldos de lona altos se desprendió de su amarre. Starbucks se encuentra en el centro de esa plaza redonda y fue completamente bloqueado por razones de seguridad.
Los gatos han perdonado a San Geraldo. Dudo, sin embargo, lo mira de reojo. Todos estamos felices de estar juntos de nuevo. Moose tiene una sonrisa de un millón de dólares. Pero, se niega a sonreír a la cámara.

I’ll take one of the cellophane wraps at top right please.
This morning I woke up and thought, “Why did you buy all this?!?”
Those rainbows are great. I wish Santa would bring me a man with chocolate balls for Christmas.
70% cocoa? 90%? Milk chocolate?
It’s like the Mother Ship called you.
Beam me up, Scotty. There’s no intelligent life on this planet.
Ah… Swiss chocolates. Is there anything else to say?
All I’m saying right now is “Why did I buy so much?!?”
All is good on the home-front, I see. PHEW!
All is back to “normal” here.
There is always something really amazing about a rainbow.
Always exciting. I had never even heard of a double rainbow until I was in my 30s.
I have only seen a couple of double rainbows in my life. What a sight it is!
Oh, so many lovely varieties of Lindt chocolate! Be still, my heart!
Yep. I was like a kid in a candy store. Imagine.
No shortage of chocolate in your house, always stock up, why risk a shortage.
Lindt chocolates were always available to me and my staff at my university job ~ my boss used to be the sales rep for these morsels. Even though he became the Athletic Director for the University his hands were still in deep with the chocolate world. YEAH!!
He would have been the best boss of my life. I never would have left that job.
The rainbows are beautiful and that third one is absolutely electric! (that sounds stupid now that I’ve typed it, but it’s how I see it!) Love the kitties, too.
That doesn’t sound at all stupid. It WAS electric. I love the kitties, too. Moose is head-butting my leg right now to come to bed.
Nice rainbows! The disconnected awning doesn’t look THAT dangerous, but I guess they know better than me.
The awnings are huge and could do some serious damage. But added to that was the fact that there was a metal pipe and anchoring plate swinging in the air. I had wondered how those would hold up in a windstorm.
