first sunday of summer
Today has that feeling, a little bit warm, a lot of light (until 8:30 this evening), and the fresh smells of new things growing. The land is greening up, with the first mosses at the base of Esja recovering their color, and the promise of the grass to follow soon. On the way to Grafarvogslaug today we saw our friend Sammi out washing his car and stopped by to chat. He gave RZzy a power-wash for his wheels with his tidy yellow Euro-power-washer, and then as we were swimming down the street at the pool, I could smell the powerful smells of barbecued burgers and dogs. It was a big contrast to just a short while ago when we were smelling gunsmoke in the dark at that same pool.
