12 on the 12th of May

Sorry for the slightly late edition and I have to admit I am short one or two pictures this month - I fell into a bad mood after dinner and decided I was done for the day.

But I digress......

The start of a beautiful, sunny spring day (as I write this, claps of thunder break the sound pattering of raindrops outside) - the morning sun peaks into the bedroom. The song, Narrow Daylight by Diana Krall swam through my head as I shot these.

Narrow daylight entered my room
Shining hours were brief
Winter is over
Summer is near
Are we stronger than we believe?

Some farm scenery on the way to work. With all the rain, the farmers haven't been able to get into the fields. I'm told the rule of thumb is after May 10-ish, the corn yield starts to diminish. Soybeans are OK until the end of May. (source - co-worker Dean, who used to farm on the side)

On my way home from work, I am delayed for over 5 minutes due to road work:

At home, the flowers are blooming and Erica created a nice bouquet:

Hannah really loves being outside in the Spring. She is sitting just outside her "spot" - she hides amidst the plantings, giving her a nice view of the visitors to the birdfeeder and the pond. Hannah has emerged from her spot because Rascal has just come outside and we are put on "orange alert" (Medium threat for kitty-cat smackdown).

Last photo for today - dinner hamburgers, hot on the grill.

After dinner, I had a violin lesson, Brian had TKD and Scott had an Elder meeting. I managed to watch a couple songs on American Idol (I didn't catch Adam singing/screaming, thank goodness). I expect Kris will be leaving tomorrow, but you never know.....
