We left late morning to pick up our two youngest grandchildren and take them with us to Cedar Rapids for their sister's college graduation on Sunday. (Their parents were already up there.) We picked up Devin at home and then drove to Huxley to pick up Dominique where she was running in a conference track meet. We got to watch her run her last event of the day the 4x100 relay. Then on to CR.
Sunday - So proud of Kathryn. After four years of hard work, she graduated from Coe College with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
On the way to Cedar Rapids we had spotted this interesting looking tree.
Monday - Cold and windy. This year's Blackberry Winter?
Tuesday - This is a tree I pass each morning on the way to the Y. I can't tell you what kind of tree it is.
Wednesday - Did a couple loads of laundry.
Thursday - The heron was at the pond for the second morning. Usually he is at Lake McKinley.
Friday - A damp, foggy morning. 80/100's inch of rain overnight.
I thought the dew draped spider webs on the eaves were pretty until I went out to my car and saw this rain drop sprinkled web fastened to the antenna - one of those little moments in nature to savor.
Saturday - Another 20/100's inch of rain for a total inch in two days.
Doug and Shelly came down late morning and brought my Mother's Day flowers. (They knew we weren't home last weekend.) Doug always gets me a hanging basket every year and Shelly brought me the little bouquet of lily-of-the-valley, which you know I love.
It is always interesting each year to see what colors Doug chooses.
Aren't these gorgeous and unusual?
And this is the week that was .....
