is any other month quite as delicious as May?

Slow down, May.
So much to savor.
Days that allow going back out to the garden after dinner.
Sun setting after 8pm resulting in a few of the chickens lingering in their yard until nearly 8:30. (Remember  December when they're all tucked in just past 4?)

Took a 2 day bus quilt shop hop last Friday and Saturday. I haven't laughed so much in months. 16 women, 7 shops, 3 states. Total in $$ for all of us over 2 days nearly $7,000. I did not match the average spent, but did bring back many treasures that I'm certain will bring hours and hours of delightful projects which I promise to share.

Took a day out with Anne at the Amish greenhouses yesterday and between us we packed my car.

Will head out again on Thursday when my sister Terri is here. There will be less room in the car with 3 of us, but we'll just drive home, unpack, and head out again if need be. We've done that before...

The forecast shows no nights below 40 in the days ahead so the tomatoes have gone out onto the back deck into the mini greenhouse to begin hardening off. We've been cleaning beds, fertilizing, weeding, and mulching. We've begun eating from the garden.
In May everything seems possible. It's all good.

Rain and chilly today and tomorrow. Grocery shopping and getting the house ready for Terri's arrival.  No time for playing with my new fabrics just yet. Doesn't stop me from going into the sewing room and stroking them, though.


  1. You've been up to so many wonderful things, sharon!
    And, oh!
    A sister visit!
    I hope the two of you have way too much fun together.

  2. Such a joyful post, Sharon!
    Is that your own photo on the header??? Gorgeous!
    Your quilt trip sounds like so much fun, and that car filled with plants - so beautiful!! I hope your visit goes well and that you continue to savor this month filled with promise! xo

  3. The Amish greenhouses sound like a lot of fun! I wouldn't be able to leave empty handed. I am glad you have lots of new fabric supplies ready and waiting! :)
