First day of summer, 2012

It’s 2012, not 2013. Sorry, Dana, you’re not 20 yet!

Today saw a little rain this afternoon and evening. I saw a double rainbow tonight. The inner rainbow was nice and strong, the outer one was somewhat weak. The last double rainbow I saw was when Lucy and I were returning from her mother’s funeral last August. Lucy liked rainbows.

The rainy weather here is hatching two unfortunate crops: mosquitoes and Japanese beetles. I’ll have to find time this weekend to set out the Japanese beetle traps. I know I’ll be putting in some time Saturday at work.

So maybe there was no pot of gold at the end of tonight’s rainbow, but it did bring back some nice memories of Lucy and me looking out the window at rainbows. She would smile when seeing one. I hope you had a chance to smile tonight, too.
