Blogger John Gray asked his readers for pictures of the view out their windows. I sent him these -- one of the not-too-clean window itself (above, and actually a French door)...
...and one of just the sun-dappled view.
I realized yesterday that our oriental poppy, which seeded itself a few years ago in the pot with our olive tree, is blooming. The flower is a sort of pale Creamsicle color, I think because it bloomed so far back in the shadows of the surrounding plants, like the pink clematis. Anyway, I was glad I saw it, because the flowers don't last long.
This is going to be my life at work for the next few weeks. Yesterday we started boxing up and moving our books. As I mentioned before, we're doing a massive library reorganization concurrent with some construction, and many books will be boxed and stored. We've got to get them in boxes and get the other books moved to those empty shelves. The boxed books will then be unboxed and shelved in the fall, when construction is done and their new shelves are ready.
I'm going to look like Johnny Weissmuller by the time this is all over.
