Tra la, it's May, the lusty month of May
That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray
Tra la, it's here, that shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear
It's May, it's May, that gorgeous holiday
When every maiden prays that her lad will be a cad
It's mad, it's gay, a libelous display
Those dreary vows that everyone takes, everyone breaks
Everyone makes divine mistakes, the lusty month of May
Yes, it's May, that fresh sweet month - Spring for the Northern Hemisphere,
Autumn freshness in the air for we in the Southern sphere..
We have plunged almost overnight from summer heat to winter winds, and I for one can't get enough of it...
The exquisite Lily of the Valley, May's floral emblem...
I found seasonal gifts for a friend whose birthday comes this week:
Scented drawer liners, and a little giveaway with Country Style magazine.
In May 2013 we were in Canada, where I delighted in the tiny white bells in our daughter's garden..
and later made little posies, gathering them with forget-me-nots for the Baptism day of the Little Bebe:
Not so little now, this is his effort for May 2014:
Yes, folks, I can climb upon the dining table and help myself..
Thank you all for your kind and caring comments on my previous post -
I truly appreciate and cherish your friendship.
When I went into hospital last week, I was buoyed by a wonderful sea of well-wishers - thank you all!
Today, I received the best of all possible news...
An excellent biopsy result: the very large growth I had removed was Benign!!
Thanks be to God, and I am extremely grateful.
As many of you know, once cancer has come into your life,
these things become a serious concern ever after.
I continue to be very tired and sleep a lot (I prepared most of this post in advance), but if I had the energy, I would be trilling along like Julie Andrews...
Have a Happy Week
