Hey look – I’m doing my post a full day earlier than I did it last week. Why, by October I might actually be timely!
Sunday, May 6th
Our peonies were gorgeous!
I’m always interested in how the bud of a flower is often a totally different color than the open flower.
Another square, in the blue, black, & grey color scheme (obvs.).
Sunday Selfie. I wore this to church & was trying to decide whether or not to wear it to work the next day. It’s a bit outside my comfort zone – purchased for our 25th anniversary cruise, actually. I decided to go ahead & wear it.
Monday, May 7th
I came home from work & Sunny had acquired this terribly cute bird bath! And then it has proceeded to rain pretty much every day since. Ha!
Tuesday, May 8th
Another day, another square…
We have a regular United Nations of birds going on here. Clockwise, from the top right: Grackles, Tufted Titmouse, Carolina Chickadee, Brown Thrasher, Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal, Eastern Phoebe, Doves, and a very rare Bunny Bird!

We had someone come to mow at work & he nearly fell down this bank, so I took a picture to send to a landscaper friend (hi David!) to see what we could do here that doesn’t involve mowing or weed eating (or round-upping). Then I forgot to send the picture to my friend. Oops.
Thursday, May 10th
I did the 10 pictures on the 10th of the month thing! Except I only took 8 pictures. And I never posted them. So, here they are instead. Clockwise from top right: 1. I arrived at work (my hair is a bit bushy these days); 2. I went out into the plant to find the system that runs the buzzer telling folks when to go on breaks & then I took a picture so I could remember what brand it was; 3. I spent pretty much the rest of the day reconciling payments made on one particular account; 4. I finally remembered to park under the awning so my car wouldn’t be so hot; 5. You can see how well that worked out for me – had to dash out there at the end of the day in the pouring rain; 6. Went home & crocheted; 7. And watched baseball; 8. And got ready for bed. Very exciting day!

I saw this in the plant & decided that it was just fabulous. First of all, go Casper! We shall not bother you and your machine! And next of all – if you look closely you can see that at some point someone added an “s” to the “he” in the last line. Feminism in the machine shop – excellent!
Saturday, May 12th
Today we went to a birthday party for Dr. M’s aunt, who actually did turn 80 (unlike my aunt who is still 79). Any occasion that calls for cake is an occasion I can get behind. Happy birthday Judy!
My main concern at this point is when will it stop raining long enough to mow my grass? What are you worried about this week?
