May 1, 2018: Quite a Month

I can’t believe that May is here! It’s an emotional month in some aspects, and favorable in others. Mother’s Day is not a time that I look forward to…it hasn’t for a while, since Mom passed away 9 years ago. I do take the chance to celebrate the other moms in my life.

May has some positive points also, since I celebrate some friends’ birthdays. It gets pretty busy by the end of the month, but it’s a good kind of busy.

May also brings back the warm weather, and flowers…and allergies. For some reason my allergy medication decides to stop working this year. It’s going to be quite a month.

April 22, 2018: Birthday Celebrations Continue

Waking up today to a beautiful Spring morning. Right now I’m relaxing by the window, enjoying the birds and peace before starting my day. Andy’s birthday was very memorable, and I’m glad that we met up with friends at his birthday celebration last night. We don’t see them very often, so every time we gather it’s truly special.

Although it’s still his birthday weekend, this afternoon we’re going to celebrate his sister’s 50th birthday. Her very special day was back in February, yet the timing of rough weather every weekend and other unexpected circumstances led us to celebrate this weekend. I’m glad that she’s finally going to have her celebration. Beginning a new decade in life is a very memorable moment, and her road to 50 was lined by many difficult events in her life, that she has triumphantly overcame.

It will get a bit hectic later in the day (as family gatherings often are), but I will enjoy the moment. Events like these go by very quickly, but there will certainly be many lovely memories made.


April 19, 2018: Spring, but Not Quite

I wake up to another day of unseasonably cold weather. When Spring arrived last month, I was excited, since I looked forward to taking my neighborhood walks after work. The sunlight was staying out later, and it would finally be warmer to move around.

Nature has other plans though, and we’re still dealing with cold temps and rain. Since it’s April, the rain is normal for this time of year, but that’s about it. I very much look forward to venturing outside after work again. I did take a walk yesterday…it was actually felt decent, and it was wonderful hearing the birds sing as the sunset was approaching.

Hopefully today won’t be a cold mess. I would love to take a walk before settling in at  home for the evening, washing my hair. Catching up on my Kindle reading. Just regular ‘almost-end-of-week’ activities.
