Thursday’s rain just took the spunk out of me, especially cycling home from the train station.  I knew my bike helmet wasn’t water proof, but hadn’t thought of rain dripping off my nose while I was riding. That was the straw that broke the camels’ back.  I just wanted to get HOME, and curl up under a blanket with a book.  No stop at the Coop for eggs or milk… I didn’t even want to go back out in the evening.  Enough!

I’ve been volunteering at the May Jazz Festival in Stavanger this week – making sandwiches in the mornings for the crews setting up for the performances.  It’s exciting to be a part of this huge affair – I guess I’d just hoped for sunny weather.

Instead of whining, however, I’m going to show you a few photos of just how beautiful it is here when the sun shines – and to be fair, we have had several days of sun, if not heat.

Spring is slow in coming, but the trees are finally leafing out – the lovely “fairy’ leaves that look like lace.

There is a mother duck and babies here in the stream.Although I’ve joked about summer being May 1, and it being over already, I’m sure there will be a warm day of two.  And I can hardly wait.
