In between rain and storms yesterday, the clouds parted and the sun came out. After running my errands, I found myself at Veterans Acres with my Polaroid SX-70. It was a peaceful afternoon around the lake. The dragonflies are back. The ducks and geese are deep into nesting and even the turtles were sunning themselves . Soon, the lake will fill with the sounds of people fishing and walking but this day, I had it to myself. And I was grateful for the silence that was broken only by the whir of the Polaroid ejecting from the camera. I reluctantly came home and watched the skies darken for the afternoon rains. Today is cooler and windy. Such is spring, fleeting at best.
The kid did not go to the track meet yesterday as her knee was hurting her too much so to stand around at a meet until 10pm. Seriously, that is how long they were scheduled to be there (it was an away meet).
