Ahhh it's May, and I'm relaxing this weekend as it is two full days off for me in a row! May will be a bit slower as I am not teaching pottery this month, but will pop in to the community arts center to check up on things and fire bisque and glaze kiln loads as Open Studio continues.
The nursery is super busy, and I'm also working more hours for the non-profit. We only have one plot left for the community garden - it's the most full it has been in a few years and we all are quite pleased!
Friday: May Day was our 11th anniversary! I gifted Robert two big bags of peanut M&Ms earlier in the week, and he gathered this beautiful bouquet of flowers from our yard, and then made us my favorite meal - steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans. Just perfect.

Saturday: I missed The Big Parade
though I heard it go by on the street south of us. I was just so exhausted from April that I stayed home all day and didn't change out of my pyjamas until 3:30.* we watched some hockey (Stanley Cup play-offs - not really rooting for any team except that I always
root against any team from any sport that is from New York!) and caught up on some other programs that we had taped/tivo-ed. But at 8:00 p.m. I mowed some of the back yard - it was a jungle back there - as by that time I felt that I needed to do something constructive.
Has anyone seen these before?

They're cute little flowers to cover up the holes in your window screen. (I opened up the green one so you can see how they work) I have no idea how I found these - I think I got them off Ebay years and years ago. The weather has been so nice - sunny and in the high 60s and low 70s - that I want to open all the windows, but stink bugs and wasps and ripped screens are keeping me from doing that. Today we may fix a few screens - the old-fashioned way and with these flowers.
Happy May everyone!
* Around 12:30 on Saturday I was trying to nap, and my bed shaked so much that it woke me up. Items on the shelves clinked together. I thought it was an earthquake but nothing came up in Google news, so then I figured it was just a large truck rumbling by in front of our house. Robert just informed me that there was indeed a 4.2 magnitude earthquake - in Michigan!
