A Belated Blessed May Day

sage

Yes for those of you who may be wondering, I am still kicking.  When I posted yesterday (just a favorite quote) I noticed the number of times I had posted thus far this year. It was few to say the least.  The month of April was only 1. 
Most of you know the reasons that keep me busier than before and why I have not been here as much as I would like to be.  Vincent is doing well.  The doctor appointments are fewer and farther between.  Although he is still under care it is a welcomed occurrence. He is back to work and so I do manage to have a bit of time to myself.  I have gained so  much respect for those who hold the name caregiver.

May Day was yesterday and a beautiful day it was.  A bit breezy yet that is to be expected in Oklahoma.  The cottonwoods are out in full force so my allergies are letting themselves be known in a wonderful manner.  We are well above our normal rainfall so everything is in full force.  It never ceases to amaze me the changes that come.  Last year we were in a major drought.  The temperatures were extremely high and everything was brown.  This year we are close to the opposite.  The abundance of color has been a wonderful gift.  It seems my flowers and such have never seemed more healthy.  My back porch has become my quiet place.  A place to calm myself when needed.

As always I am hoping to be able to drop by a bit more often then I have been yet I have learned not to promise things you are not sure of.  I have missed so many of you so much and the occasional email or comment I receive from you always lets me know that some friends can never be explained or replaced…. Blessings to all of you.  I hope that this finds you well and that our visits will become a bit more frequent.  Til then be safe….

Janie...It is so good to hear your voice and know that everything is getting better!!! :) How wonderful that Vincent is back to work already...WOW! That's waaay cool my Dear.
That second photo is gorgeous! Is that inside looking out or just outside? Whatever, I love the pond being so close...hmmm to be near water like that sends my heart over the edge, lol. Lucky You!
I've been worried about you with all the bad weather moving across the US...all those tornadoes and such. Everytime I see that I just cringe and start praying for your safety. More than one candle has been lit for you, lol.
Well, have a great week and once again so good to hear your voice!!!
Belated Blessed May Day..

SO good to see another post, Janie. And so happy to hear that Vincent is doing well. Your plants are beautiful and the view from your porch is spectacular. I can see that it would be a comforting place to relax.
Happy Spring!

Thanks for the update on your beloved. So glad he is on the mend.
Your back porch looks like a place we could have a glass of iced tea and enjoy a lazy spring afternoon.....if those existed...lazy that is.
XOXO Oma Linda
