May Day Memories
Today is May Day! I have fond memories from childhood. We delivered May Baskets to our friends in Iowa. In New York our school celebrated with the Maypole and dancing.
Yesterday, Don and I did a May Day walk, a day early. The weather was gorgeous and we saw lots of flowers.
May Day 2020 in Texas
Today is gorgeous too, but it has a weird feel. Today is the day Texas begins to re-open the state. This makes me anxious because, this may backfire if people get too relaxed.
Today I was also a little sad, because May first was the day Don and I were supposed to fly from Texas to California.
We canceled 12 unique and historic hotels. Some of the more obscure ones may never reopen. Sad for us and much sadder for them.
May Day Surprise
Today, in the early afternoon, I heard the doorbell. I assumed it was UPS, but when I peeked out I spied a little May Day Elf dashing away!
I rushed to the porch and hollered my thanks, to my dear neighbors! It felt good to be connected, talking across the yard. I was absolutely giddy with this sweet surprise! This is what I'll remember, about Pandemic May Day!
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
