one step closer

One step closer to school being over. All that is left is graduation next Friday night. We have to wait a week because MSU is holding graduation ceremonies at the Breslin Center and we have to wait until they are done. Monday was get grades in day. Tuesday through Thursday were "Faculty Held Hostage Days". I cheated and took this year"s Personal Days for Tuesday and Wednesday. I went in today because it was program day and went to an early meeting where we were told that we were being reorganized again. All admins seem to want to do is shuffle us (all the easier to keep the level of tension up).

This morning I came out the door at an unghodly hour (for me anyway) and the neighborhood sparrows were screaming terrible things. It seemed like like my side of the street yelling at the other until I caught motion out of the corner of my eye. I looked up and it was a hawk circling. The buffet was screaming at the hawk, ahh. It was too small to be the female redtail that lives in the neighborhood, too big to be the christmas tree ornament, so I watched the silhouette for later identification. I caught sight of it again and could see that it was a blue-ish gray.

I also present you with pictures of my garden taken at assorted times this week.

An over exposed pic of the rugosa at the front door just to prove I do have roses blooming this early.



Assorted things in front. The iris are mostly all open this image is from Monday.







Out back but the dandelions need to go.
