May 2014…a time to plant flowers and food seeds, to feel warm sun rays and soft raindrops, time to watch nature’s colors evolve from drab browns to rainbow hues, a time for rebirth not only in nature but in ourselves.

April is exiting with a vengeance—as I type the wind whips our seasonal flag into a frenzy and causes raindrops to smack our windows. The evidence of this inclement weather—tree branches of all sizes along roadways and yards—is minor in the face of the estimated 11 devastating tornadoes that crossed about multiple states.

April did provide several hints that spring/summer weather is coming. On those days I planted outside pots of snow peas and inside pots of Swiss chard. The flowers starts I’ve been planting are blooming, waiting for May’s end to be put outside. Yes, hope springs eternal…

The bug that took up residence in Monte, causing a two-week siege of bronchitis followed by an additional 6-week recovery period was complicated by strep throat. Although we took every precaution some of Monte’s invasive bug decided to attack a new residence. It is now visiting me.

I’m experimenting with Twitter (see the icon on the bottom to the left—I invite you to become a follower) and E-bay. I continue to write my novel-under-construction (and other items) and clean house, tasks which will continue through May.

May the sunrays of May bring rainbow colors into your life.



  1. Carolyn, hope you’re feeling better.
    keeping you and Monte in prayer.

    • That’s what I did…SKYPE first, then Twitter. And I’m challenged by both…
