When I met my girlfriends for dinner last week Trisha leaned across the table and asked, “Is May trying to kill you?”.  I laughed because that’s exactly what it felt like.  May was trying to kill me.  My house had become a place where we dumped our things, got more things, and ran out the door again.  I’m not a person who can handle that for very long.

But what started out as a hectic month has eased into a deliciously slow pace.  School is out for the year, most of our weekly commitments are ending, and my brain has finally stopped buzzing.  The mornings are wonderful.  We wake up slowly, eat zucchini bread with a generous helping of butter, turn on the music, and stay in our pajamas.

I’m really looking forward to summer!  Trips to the library, swimming, maybe a little camping, Miss P’s 1st birthday, summer fruit, and fireworks… it sounds perfect.  The flower garden is on the verge of taking off which means bouquets all over the house!

So how will you idle away your summer?

    Happy days of summer. Our flowers are confused. Searing 104 last week, barely 70 degrees this week. The zucchini seem to like it, as the plant is really putting out already. I started back to water aerobics. So fun and refreshing, hoping David can join me as his health improves. My littlest Grandson is coming for a visit in July, for a week! Mom and Dad are leaving him with us for 4 days. We will housesit for my mom, overlooking the beautiful ocean for 3 1/2 weeks…that will be vacation and refreshing too!

    Idling would be delightful if life in general wasn’t trying to kill me, not just May! Man! Between school ending, grad parties, ball games, dentist visits and you name everything else, I can barely catch my breathe. I’m hoping for a better June. :)

    Everyone looks great, April, and today I burnt the bottoms of my feet getting the mail so I guess summer really may arrive here after all!!!! I’m looking forward to it.

    PLEASE show more pictures of that darling quilt or blanket or whatever it is! You find THE most adorable fabrics! And the little onesie, and oh my goodness, what I wouldn’t do for a week or two of sewing with you and Thelma and Jeanette… It would just be too much inspiration to handle, I think, but I would love it anyway. :)

    So glad your month is slowing down a bit! I’m with you – I do not handle long periods of time of great busyness. I simply cannot enjoy life that way. Slow and quiet, with happy spontaneous events – that is my sweet spot. :)

    xoxo

      Oh my goodness! A week of sewing with you and Jeanette and Thelma would set me up for life!! I’m afraid I can’t show anymore pictures of the quilt because it now lives in AR with baby Jude :)
