5.7.15Still not mowing the grass, allowing my favorites, the violets, to polka-dot the lawn.

5.6.15Grading papers, attending concert, writing exams. But today is the last day of classes, so it’s time to work in a little jig of delight at the prospect of days of free time hazily appearing on the horizon.

5.4.15And the week of end-of-semester events begins. It’s exhausting and poignant, graduating seniors and retiring colleagues who will slip from our life here, some to be missed more than others, but all to change the balance of what has been.

5.3.15More flowers, more sunshine. The last week of classes begins, and although spring seems to have barely arrived, already summer beckons.

5.2.15A leaf emerges. Friends gather at my house in the afternoon to don hats, drink mint juleps, and cheer on their horse– winner to get the $1/each pot. The event is made more sunny by the return of J from his adventures in Thailand and Seattle. Only here for a few-day visit, but it is good to hear his laugh and see his smile. Friends have a way of circling back into one’s life and it is always a treat when they do.

5.1.15Daffodils are in full bloom, tulips popping out to greet May. My brand new tree seems to have made it through the tough winter; I check it every day to see if the buds are opening up. Nothing to see yet, but soon I’m sure as everything is greening up at a presto tempo. Spring definitely started late but it seems intent on catching up to its schedule. Me too, aware that the end of the academic year is approaching.
