SUMER IS ICUMEN IN...

Lhude sing cucu
Groweth sed ynd bloweth med
Ynd all the worlde doth sing anew
Sing cucu!

Enough of that nonsense. Summer, for me, is at least partly heralded by insects. I saw the first fireflies of the season last night, and received my first mosquito bite of the season yesterday. Hooray! Well, not for the bite, but stilll...it signifies.

UNCONSIDERED TRIFLES

Mmm...trifle.

1. Working in a vacant and clean apartment is kind of creepy.
2. Our backyard is nothing but a huge mud puddle. We have had about 1700 feet of rain in the last week (flooding Vernon Marsh and the Fox River), and before we moved in, the landlords pulled out the pool that occupied a good 3/4 of the yard. They have not yet sodded the remaining dirt-filled hole. (That sounds extremely naughty.)
3. We have a horse chestnut tree in one corner of our backyard that is not given over to mud.
4. All that remains is the vacuuming and for the cable to switch. Otherwise...we're officially done

Hey ho for some bookshelves! Hey ho for a quarter of an acre of sod!

MOVING

We're almost done. We have some odds and ends at both of our places and hella much cleaning to do, but we are almost totally done. Shout out to Mike and Ryan, big strong guys who made it go much faster.

Also a big shout out to the Ennobled Power of Cooperative Weather. It wasn't too hot, wasn't raining, and there was a lovely light breeze to cool us off while we were heaving Josh's boxes of books.

Another shout to Chen's Kitchen in Mukwonago, who fed us all so well. Damn, they have a good lunch buffet.

Anyway...same goes for me as for Josh - online presence will be sporadic. The 'net gets switched at the end of this week, so that means in effect, my old apartment is my office. Since my desk is moved to Place, I have to transcribe standing up, which is waaaaay more comfortable than sitting down, at least for now.

Besides, it's mid-May in Wisconsin. You know what that means? The best weather of the year until October, the most lovely vistas of green and flora, and hiking until my (our?) feet beg for mercy.
