So, I guess I'll play catch up a little, since it is already June and May is gone with the wind! hmmm, will the wind is still here, but May is indeed gone none the less.
It was a fun month, one of my favorite. I love lilacs, it is one of my favorite smells...they bloom but once a year and the blooms last just a few short weeks in the month of May. I have two bushes in my yard. One is white and is about 10 years old. The other is pale purple and is about 4 years old. I have a neighbor a few houses down who has one that is deep purple--I would love to have that color in my yard! I think I have bush envy
This May was our first annual women's retreat to Angel Fire New Mexico. My friend Kristie and I along with God planned it. There were only 5 of us who went and we had a fabulous time! We talked about Joy. I got to give the message--that was a little stressful, but also fun. We split the cost of a private cabin in the woods and the food and it was very affordable yet luxurious and cozy. We had so much fun that we are going to do it again next year. (If you want to be included, just let me know.)
We are fitting in some fun though. We are going to take the new camper to Elephant Butte Lake for a camping weekend. Our friends Bridget and Ron live there. We have been planning to go see them for the last 5 years and now we are finally making it happen. I'm so excited to see them and to go fishing and swimming and boating!
Oh, one more thing about May. Since we had the Fiber Arts Fiesta on memorial weekend, we didn't make our annual trip to Carlsbad. So we were in town for Trish's (Wayne's boss) pool opening party. Amara went with us and had so much fun. She swam and jumped in the pool for a good solid 4 hours. It was good to see her have so much fun. At the end of the day all the kids roasted marshmallows on the gas grill and made smores. She was in kid sugar heaven!
Well, as you can see, all is good here at the Jones's. I could tell you a hundred more things...but I'll let you go for now...I need to get my day started. God bless your week. ~ T
