I can’t believe May is almost over.
I did a double take looking at my calendar last night –
What do you mean it’s Memorial Day Weekend?
How did that happen?
My daughter’s birthday is in a few days – there are birthday chores to do!
(Why is my life so chaotic? It seems like there’s never time to catch my breath.)
For the holiday weekend, I want to see PR turn the corner and start looking/feeling a whole lot better.
Worrying about his health is aging me several years per hour.
There is no worry like the worry of a parent for their child.
want need to get caught up on the forty bazillion (work/photography) things I’m hopelessly behind on.
A little time to relax and have fun would be nice too …?!
I’m now unpacked.
I’m tackling enormous piles of laundry.
There’s healthy food in the house. (I even cooked some of it!)
Mocha is caught up on her ear rubs and belly scratches. (She missed me!)

Oh, and I took care of RC’s college graduation present too.
(All WFU students were provided with laptops, but he had to turn his in when he graduated, His graduation gift was/is a laptop of his very own.)
On our way home from the laptop purchase, I made a quick stop for a new pair of flip flops.
I can’t believe my well-worn favorites had to be tossed out.
My backyard is filled with the intoxicating smell of jasmine blooming.
(It might be my favorite scent. I associate it with summers from my childhood.)
When I step outside, I’m befriended by dozens (!!) of fearless hummingbirds.
While I’ve been busy traveling, summer has arrived.
It’s time to take a deep breath (of the jasmine-scented air) and enjoy the beginning of summer.
I can’t wait to do exactly that,
But, first I need to spend my morning with Paul Newman.
He can be quite
insistent persuasive at times.
(I bet a lot of women wish they were spending their mornings being poked and prodded by Paul Newman?)
