May is the month of expectation, the month of wishes, the month of hope. — Emily Brontë

Simply put… I love May. It is the month of “best of” so many things!

I have, at least, one bunch of allium bulbs that are blooming… and they are stunning. My expectation was low… but the bulbs did their thing… and extraordinarily bloomed!

AND…when we arrived home on Saturday afternoon, I saw hummingbirds visiting those glorious blooms! I am holding hope for the remaining bulbs I planted… if they only do half as good as the current bloomers, I will be happy!

This month I should set some intentions. But if the only thing I accomplish this month will be to assemble my 100 Day Project into a book, I will be happy!


The video above (my backyard birdsong included!!) shows all twenty pages in the order I did them. Today I will make my “cover and last” pages and begin thinking about the order I want them in! The Book is the only tangible thing on my list this month because I think that the real work of this project is about to begin! (And maybe if the rain stops, I can begin the Great Sweater Wash this month as well!)

But I will be savoring lots of intangible things as well… like glorious May days, backyard birding (a pair of robins have “selected” our hedge for their nest and it currently holds one egg), and savoring every moment of this amazing month!

I also have quite a bit of “catch up” to do! I have missed you all and will make my way through what you have been up to! I will also catch you up on some highlights from our vacation… there were some amazing things! And, I have an April update with my word as well!

See you all back here tomorrow with that word update! Happy Monday!
