The Merry Month of May

The month of May has brought activities that affirm that Spring is here. I am starting to see results of our little garden. I am so glad that we planted so many tomato plants because after tasting the few that have ripened I could eat the little cherry tomatoes like candy.

Last night we went to watch Colleen run her first 5K. She came in at 37:04. She is happy with the results and now has a bench mark for the other races she is planning to do. This race was sponsored by Shade the skin cancer organization that Shonda Shilling started. We thought this was fitting sense Colleen had a cancerous mole removed from her back a few years ago. Colleen had matching shirts made that said " Run Like A Girl" with wings on the back. They looked really cute.

Mother’s Day we had the kids over and we had Spaghetti (my favorite). It was a great day and I loved seeing all the grand kids. Sevrine was here for the weekend and again this weekend for Colleen’s 5K. I got this perpetual calendar from Kristen and I am so excited to try the different patterns in my dish cloth knitting.

On the stitching front, I have been working on a couple of samplers that I will be giving to friends at the end of the month. One is a birthday gift and another a graduation present to a awesome lady who finished her nursing program. Along with the normal baby gifts, I work on dish cloths to keep my gift pile stocked. I tried working from a chart with the tulip cloth. I wanted to try chart reading before I started a bigger project on my to-do list.

I just made my box today. Not well thought out, but thats what happens when I run out of time. Monday I will go and get my soil (hopefully) and put in the seeds.

I love that dishcloth! And I'll always loving stitching. I enjoyed so much being with my 6 buddies (we called ourselves the "Seven Sisters"---and got together once or twice a month. We went out to eat, shared Christmases together for about 5 years---it was really one of the best times of my life. I haven't been able to find knitters like that.
