Three day weekend rides are so relaxing. My hubby had a three day weekend also it’s the start of April vacation week for my son. The first photo was taken today (Monday )we woke to this hitting the windows it’s really not snow more like sleet and now it’s being washed away from the buckets of rain that has been coming down all day. The next photos are of our weekend ride before all the sleet arrived . We went on a back road and yes indeed a back road no guardrails to protect you if you veered off some parts along the river where pretty steep that I couldn’t take a photo of because I hate heights 😂this river is called the Green river if you notice yes it’s Green color because of the clay in it , a lot of people find it refreshing in the summer if your daring ..it’s so cold…it’s also a perfect river to fish in. It was a nice ride even though the temps where only in the 30’s but nice and warm in the truck. Spring is just not wanting to come.. now their saying we are looking at a cool Month of May …. oh I hope their wrong. My son was happy to be inside today after his hike /run with his track team well the ones who where daring enough to do so with the coach. Where they ended up standing in a foot of snow and extremely cold . Which sadly found out running /hiking up in a T-shirt and jogging pants.. he wasn’t lazy inside today tho just inside at the gym working out.. any how this weather is crazy but the ride was nice ..would like to see some flowers tho…. especially my roses would be a beautiful sight 🙂
Sorry no Monday Photo just realized it was Monday …these three day weekends it was Memorial Day in my part of the world. So it threw me with the week starting already …it was a quiet one this yr no barbeque with the rain that we had off and on but was able to get to the cemetery to put flowers at my parents stone and to enjoy the long weekend with my husband and daughter and a little bit with my son….. but that part is for another time.. My husband cleared out our basement from all its clutter and we have started getting our summer things out next weekend we will fix our fire pit which had a rough winter ..so we can enjoy some bonfires and tasty smores under the stars..Oh and some wine. Well getting late going to go settle have a goodnight everyone.
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.
Today for photo Monday . It’s my beautiful Rose from our flower garden last summer.and I thought it would be perfect for the first day of Spring . Love roses their one of my favorite flowers always beautiful bright and refreshing when they bloom.. enjoy everyone.
