May

The month of May is here.

How has time traveled so fast?

May is a big gardening month-the last frost date will soon pass,

and it is the time to plant most of the garden…

but for me, there will be very little gardening-

for me, May will be the packing month.

After 26 years, we will be moving from this house and garden.

And so the packing begins…

the first box packed was some of my quilts.

There have been dozens of boxes packed since this first one, and many more to go.

I lay awake at night thinking of each room,

and about packing it up.

What a nightmare!

Merry does not worry at all-

He found the quilts a lovely place to take a nap-

quilts and boxes, a cat’s favorite things,

(besides hunting for frogs and moles!)

Psalm 18:2

The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer;

my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
