I was reminded this afternoon with my daughter that it was May Day when we took a ride into town this morning and saw the local Elementary kids with their teachers pushing a wagon filled with May Day baskets. May Day basket you ask well that was a basket or a cup designed with fresh beautiful spring flowers and notes or pictures…a celebration of Spring. in other cultures theirs music bright color pole with ribbons that you dance around. .. a may pole , you ate cake. What I remember was making the baskets and going to neighborhood houses and giving a basket to an older or shut in person and then random houses. I did it as a child as well as my kids I always thought it was a fun time my kids thought so too. It was nice to see the smiles on peoples faces when they found them at their doors.
Good Morning It’s Monday! Over the weekend I bought my self a gift okay it’s a lot smaller then the picture shows,, it’s the cutest little plant holder and the its a coffee plant growing inside it. I was bringing my daughter a coffee at work for her of course coffee hahaha and I spotted this where she works in the floral department and she told me they just got them in and they where selling fast . I just couldn’t resist she thought it was pricey but it was so cute and so simple I wanted it. you know how I said I love simple. I brought it home and my husband and son just smirked and said well that is so you …and I need to add my daughter too has a coffee fetish .,
So being a very blustery day sitting on the deck on my swing did not last to long especially with sun now gone and the temps cooler not enjoyable ,so I went inside and got comfy in my chair and started my book. I have seen the movie but so far I think the book is a lot better…but isn’t it always ? more detailed. . I will let you know ,now that my guys are home from the track meet and fed and one guy is off to a friends house probably for the night will see and my other guy (hubby) very sunburned so laying on the couch watching TV trying to recover from the long day I will read a bit more . So I will keep you posted how it is.
Woke up to a Very sunny beautiful…but….. A very warm sticky day , so hard to adapt after many chilly rainy days. So I decided not a day to enjoy my coffee on the deck so I ‘watched some news and then got started with my day which consisted to three different stops in town and I would of thought I had a note on my back then said talk to me I ran in to many who wanted to sit and chat about everything so I did my best with the time limit I was on because my son had a track meet and I wanted to go see it. Okay I never pass up a good conversation yes I love to talk:) but time was running out; I stopped to get gas went into pay and the lady who works there decides to tell me and I quote my jerk of a boyfriend has stolen my money all I could was console her with I felt bad but I didn’t know where this was coming from I really do not know her she is just always so nice to me when I go there and I was taken back when she told me that. I wish I could of chatted longer but for one she was working and the lady behind me I felt like she was throwing daggers at the back of my head with her eyes hahaha and I did have a meet to get to . It’s funny my daughter and son are always saying to me do you know that person because a lot of people will strike up a conversation with me I will talk to anyone if your pleasant to me and I usually can spend a good amount of time with them but sadly not today. It’s funny because a lot of people do not know that about me but then I guess they do not give me the chance to get to know me.
The meet went very well my son and his team won and he broke one of his running records in the hurdles so that was a proud moment for my hubby and I . Tomorrow my son will have an all day meet which will be a very long day for him . My hubby will be going I will not be It’s to much walking and standing for this hip of mine but my heart will be there with him. well I think I will call it a day goodnight everyone.
Its blurry but it was taken quickly in case she moved…in which case she hasn’t . So this my very warn chair but it’s just one of those things that are just too comfy to replace…soon . So this where I like my morning coffee in front of this window on a cold winter morning because the sun just shines in and it’s warm and beautiful . I also love to write their as well, so this morning I got up out of the chair to freshen my coffee and when I came back there she was…Okay so I stared at her and she just curld up and stared at me . She has her place the corner of the couch where she sleeps endlessly everyday. well I let her be and started my day. My daughter and I left to do some errands and when we came back she was walking around. I finish some things around the house and my daughter left for work I decided to grab my laptop well look what I found… yes my chair.I swear this cat is mocking me …what do you think? 🙂
The wind nips at my face as my hair blows around my face blocking my eyes and sending me stumbling to the ground . The earth below me feels hard and cold like your heart. I curse but not because of you but because of me …why I yell how could I be so blind. How could I not see who you where who I was or became so weak…I lay there and the fog surrounds me I try to move but I can’t I can only lay there as the fog gets thicker. My eyes close …I’m awaken by the bright morning Sun.. I blink and I notice I’m in my room I was dreaming and you are gone and I smile I am not weak I am strong.
