Merry Month of May!
The month of May has arrived. Time to celebrate with a fun Giveaway!
"April showers bring spring flowers" was my mantra last month. Now, a silly little song written in 1884 is looping through my mind. And yet I know this May will be like no other. But I expect our country will blossom and spring back to life again soon.

The other day I called a relative in New Holland, Lancaster County, PA, and was surprised she didn't answer. I surmised that maybe with cabin fever setting in she and her husband had gone for a drive just to get out of the house. When she called me back twenty minutes later, she told me she'd been in the yard planting flowers. She loves to spend time outside, especially camping, but she said the national parks were closed to camping, as they are in the Puget Sound.

No baseball practices for our grandson, which seems all wrong. Many, many disappointments for both children and adults this spring, and probably summer. No trip back East this year for my husband and me. Boo hoo. Noel and I walk together most mornings, now that he's working from our home. I do see more of him, which is a treat.

Are you having fun today? If you're my Giveaway Winner I hope to embellish your good mood or to turn your gloomy frown upside-down with a $100 Amazon Gift Card! Plus a signed book.
