May…I tell you about this month

He that is in a towne during May, loseth his Spring.  -George Hebert

That is definitely not me, this year!  I have been out and about taking in all the goodness and beauty of this month of May.  Spring continues to be early and the out of doors is teaming with life.  Its been so good to be busy, with…let me think:

-At the end of April my SIL, Lisa of Life on Sassy Cat Hill, was here from Virginia…. Lis’ is a garden designer, animal rehabilitator and mosaicist among other things.  Most recently, we discovered she has a talent for painting and surprised us Capri’s with one for each of us…

I loves my painting of Missy Bibby.  Thank you Lis’.  Yes, and thanks especially for making me think about painting myself, about how much fun it would be,  and when I could fit it in, and if I should try yet another thing. 

-But then, I have been painting!  Just not on canvas….on walls.  Jackie’s house is almost ready for move in.  Its so darn cute, I can’t wait to show you photos. 

-This month I finished BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) for the year.  We sailed through the Acts of the Apostles and many of the epistles.    I got to know Paul, and his amazing life that could only have been happened through the grace of God.  All these letters and books were full of practical knowledge, many lessons on how to live a Christian life.  We all know them, but now I Know them.  Hopefully they were planted in my heart.  I thank CK for her hospitality and support and discussions this year…Kel you were the reason I started going to BSF.  Thank you.   In the fall, the study will be Genesis.  That will be interesting and controversial to my beliefs.  But that is the great thing about BSF, they do not force feed…

-I’ve been trying to shake off the winter inactivity with longer daily walks.  Now, if I would just take that big clunky camera, I might get lucky and have something to blob about. 

-I’ve been working on a large mosaic, in dibs and dabs.  But, dibs and dabs of tiny pieces of glass add up to a project getting closer to completion.  This is one of the 9 panes in this window…I’m working all the panes at the same time to ensure a little continuity.  IMG_1578

-For the first time in my life, this month I’ve “babysat” my dad.  He is recovering from several attacks of ill health and, therefore, is weak.  But he’s improving, and he’s a lot of fun to sit for. 

-I spend every evening outside on the porch, at least for a little while.  IMG_1579

The birds provide the soundtrack to the ever changing scenes.

See you next month….I’ll be busy hanging onto May.
