Saturday May 4, 2019 through Saturday, May 18, 2019
I am not even going to try and pretend that I remember what we did on what day. Except for the five days I have pinpointed below. I know what happened on those days; there are pictures. The days have gone by mostly all merging together with the normal chores of Spring for Tom. He spent time, between the rain, raking the yard and then he went and retrieved the lawn mower from the storage unit and cut the grass. I have emptied cupboards and wiped them down, done some rearranging. Plus, there is a box started for St. Vinnies as I know there is more purging that will take place. Next week we will probably started doing some perging out at the storage unit. I know towards the end last year I saved things just because I was tired of deciding and now I know some stuff needs to go. Plus, I have several large containers of material that I need to get rid of and while we still have the house this would be a good time to do it.
There have been several showings of the house, including one that was going on when we pulled in. Praying, fingers crossed, hoping (covering all the bases) it will sell soon. In the meantime we are settled in here in the driveway doing the everyday things that are part of living.

Adelaide and Nate are in day care when there mom is working. Nate's, (he wants to be called Nate not Nathaniel), includes a pre-school program. This was there spring concert. There are two age groups and they each sang three songs. I think it took longer to get them situated in the stage area then to sing. It was cute and they had been told if they sang loud they would have cake and juice. So loud they all were. After wards we went out for dinner. His older sister came along.

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, May 9, 10, & 11, 2019
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday were all about dance. This is Charlotte's 5th year in dance and it is a busy three days for her and her mom. Thursday they have stage lessons, Friday is dress rehearsal, and Saturday they have a 1 o'clock and 6 o'clock show. I have to say the woman who owns the Academy of Dance were she takes lessons keeps everything moving right along. I have been at the dress rehearsals the last five years and they last maybe ten minutes longer then the actual shows. She has an excellent staff and group of volunteers who keep things rolling. We live in a small town and yet these kids dance in front of a packed house every year.

After Mass on Sunday Tom took us out to the Casino for the Mother's Day Brunch. While we were waiting for out table my brother, Frank and his wife, Jody walked in. It was a nice surprise and we ended up being able to have them join us at the table we were waiting for.
Saturday, May 18, 2019
We had several days of sunshine and blue skies and then today grey skies and rain on and off all day. Figures, since it is the weekend it would rain. Back when we worked it was always so disappointing to have a weekend off and it would be raining.
So today's excitement was a drive out to the casino to use there dump station. Tom is the one who gets to have all the fun; I just go along for the ride. As long as we are in the drive way this will be our fun about every two weeks. It is not a bad drive, about 15 minutes, and the engine gets a little work out.

|Back to our neighborhood.
This has been our May so far. We have had rain, sunshine, cold days, and even some temperatures in the low 60's. The days will continue to unfold one at a time some will be spent taking care of things that need to be done and others will be spent relaxing and enjoying the day.
|I am including this information just because.
I love the last sentence.

If I had my way they would cover the yard. I think they are beautiful.
To Our Canadian Friends:
So glad you took the time to stop by.
Hope you are having a wonderful Spring filled with sunshine.
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
