Oh my goodness; look at the date! It's the end of May already.
I'd like to take this time to say "Thank you May."
Thank you for bringing my baby home from school (and totally messing up my downstairs room and clogging up my refrigerator and filling most of my evenings with extra kisses and hugs).
Thanks for the best Mother's Day ever with the best kids ever -- their love and thoughtfulness (and the awesome chocolates they gave me!).
Thank you for all the wonderful yard sales this month. Thanks for the pulled pork sandwich and the several sausages-in-a-bun and the carrot cake. (Oh yeah! And a big thanks for that free rhubarb cheesecake square. That was REAL good!)
I didn't appreciate that cold you gave me last week; but I am grateful that it's didn't hang on too long.
Thank you for the fine-weather weekends you gave me: I got all the gardening done, and I was even was able to finally move that Holly bush. Phew! That was a tough 'un! And every time I worked in the garden, I took the time to sit and enjoy that sun you sent. Thanks.
But May, your time has come and gone. And now it's time to welcome a new month:
As much as I appreciated you, I'm ready for June.
'Cause ya know, the gardenings done ..... and there's probably some more good weather in the forecast ..... and I've a stack of good books and a lounge chair with a comfy cushion and some gin and tonic in the cupboard.
