for this new month

date lunch at Sitka & Spruce (bottom image)

This year, the beginning of May, here, is cold, and fraught with jarring news seemingly every time I turn on the radio. As I played dodge ball with Cal tonight after dinner, to my surprise, I could smell that one of our neighbors was grilling on this cold and damp Monday night. I put that out there for you -- I wish you a month with that kind of tenacity, to be out there grilling when you might be better advised to be indoors making soup.

Yesterday it was still warm enough for us, now it is very cold and it rains. April weather in May.

I like your photos.

I love the way your images always make me feel warm and serene, even if it might be damp, raw and cold.

The perfect sentiment for this very odd week.

Lecia, I ALWAYS take my grill out of the garage on the first day of daylight savings time...always at least until this year! It's too cold! I started 2 weeks ago though and it really feels a lot more like spring. (I'm interspersing the grilling with big pots of soup though)

I don't have that kind of tenacity - but we have been out grilling twice, over an open (and warming) fire.

Grilling in May as metaphor. Lovely.
