Monday, May 15: Took a walk to the village with Mr. Karen and there was so much to see I had a hard time picking a photo for today. We went up the road past the lifts to the seasonal stream raging with spring runoff and then came back down and took in the view down the beginner slope, temporarily unobstructed by lift towers and chairs as they’ve taken the old lift out and construction of the new one has yet to begin, and that was all picturesque. But I went with this trillium, not the first one I’ve seen this spring but not far behind it.
Tuesday, May 16: Mr. Karen and I went down to town to vote in our local election, then had lunch and walked over to the beach, where a few folks were enjoying the unseasonably warm weather.
Wednesday, May 17: Went down to the studio to work on some things. When I left, the sky was beautiful, so much so that I pulled off the road next to some train tracks to admire it and take some photos.
Thursday, May 18: Another day, another walk to the village to get the mail and enjoy spring. This is the view down the beginner slope, with the one remaining lift tower from the old lift that they left (we assume because it has lights on it for night skiing). The haze is smoke from the fires in Canada.
Friday, May 19: Went in for my long overdue routine mammogram. This coloring book panel was outside one of the doors in the hallway to the imaging center, a bright spot in an otherwise drab institutional building.
Saturday, May 20: Was busy working my to do list in preparation for a solo road trip, but still took some time out to color. I love quirky images like these cats walking on their hind legs going for the milk set out on a table in the yard.
Sunday, May 21: Got out for a walk before the rain came. Almost no snow left on these south facing slopes.
