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 were to stay with Scott and Chali and also visit our friends in Oceanside.
We had lots of fun stops planned, in between visits.
I know, cancelling trips is not something to complain about... but I will.
Last week, Don and I finished canceling all our hotels for our travels, in north and south 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!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 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. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
