May in Review

OK May, you kinda got away from me but you were a good month! 

We took advantage of this pre Summer month by seeing some sights, working in the yard, heading to the beach, entertaining family & friends, and working hard at jobs & at home. 

 1) Yarn bombing at Convention Hall. 2) Gold caps in Howell, NJ. 3) Dreamy sunsets on the Asbury Park boardwalk. 4) Fancy carpets in Cape May, NJ.

A lot of May was spent taking care of our cat family, our people family, and our home. I am constantly delighted by our house and those we gather around us. It was wonderful to take stock of that this month. 

 1) The Doctor. 2) Pit Star. 3) Sticky. 4) (me and) Tommy Boy.

Blogging, quilting, and all things creative were done this month, but they took a back seat to living life. We celebrated birthdays, helped create Micro Societies, hosted guests, BBQed and worked a lot in May. 

 1) The pool at The Asbury Hotel; newly opened. 2) High Contrast in AP. 3) Ever expanding Bossk collection. 4) GITD ghoul.

Every month in our new home has been interesting and exciting, but May was a real eye opener. We started really seeing how things will be year to year in our yard, with flowers, bushes, and birds we never kew we had popping up all over. Watcher cats and dogs cropped up in new places. Exciting events and openings happened around town.

 1) A good neighbor always keeps a #watchercat. 2) Keeping a #watcherdog eye on the yard. 3) Watcher cat most modern. 4) I gained a follower, but only for a block.

Along with all the new things we learned we were also able to keep up some traditions and create ones that may stick next year. Family visited this month and we hope they will come back often and soon. I spent some time at my mother's school, helping to finish out the year. Friends took back a Memorial Day Weekend tradition that can now continue. We saw shows, went to the fair, played and planted. 

I wasn't wrong to hope that May would be exciting, maybe I was too right. With Summer, I'm hoping comes swimming, bright and sunny beach days, lots of work getting done, but some relaxing, too, please!. Bring it on, June!
