June 8: Cherry happy.
It’s cherry season! (And we’re doing our best to eat a few bushels before we leave.)

June 7: Drop everything.
Nearly every afternoon here begins with a summer rain shower. And afterward, the air is cool and (mostly) sweet. I love it. I will miss it. I am not looking forward to going back to a place where the only thing rain does is turn the city into a sauna!

June 4: Somewhere over the rainbow.
Summer showers and the setting sun mean gorgeous rainbows over downtown Cluj.

May 26: Fenced in.
We’ve been away for two weeks, but it’s still spring here in Cluj. Things are still blooming. And we’re still wearing light jackets. I love it. And I am not at all ready to go back to our home in the States, where it’s hot, humid, and miserable already.

May 23: Silver lining.
Spent the night and day in the hospital with Giggles. Thankfully, the staff fast-tracked him and he had surgery to fix his elbow within five hours of breaking it. Thankfully, he hadn’t eaten dinner before his accident and was able to go under anesthesia right away. Thankfully, the nurses pulled two hospital beds side-by-side and I was able to stay with him, to comfort him, to comfort myself by listening to his slow, deep, sleeping breaths.

May 8: Bench pressed.
Yellow flowers. Blue bench. Green, green trees. All spotted out of the corner of my eye through the slats of a fence. There is color everywhere in this country. I love it.

May 6: Where the wild things are.
We’ve already decided one of our least favorite things about heading back to the States is going to be tending to and mowing our lawn. Because it’s hot and brutal where we live. Keeping things green is a near-fruitless task and keeps the water bills high. In Romania? They generally let grow what wants to grow. With whatever rain happens to fall. Daily, I pass sidewalks and courtyards carpeted in dandelions. And you know what? It’s beautiful. Really, really beautiful.

May 2: Spring fling.
More beautiful spring flowers. I just can’t get enough of this beautiful Romanian season. Where we live in the States? It already feels like summer.

April 25: A bushel and a peck …
I don’t know where all the neighborhood chickens spent the cold months, but they are out and about, frolicking in their yards, munching on worms, and squawking at their cohabitant canines. Their tale-tell clucks one more sign spring is here to stay!
