The last week of May is here. I can’t believe May is almost over. Looking back I just haven’t taken many pictures this week. Our days are slow and filled with time outside. We haven’t really done much, although I am trying to find more free things for us to do.
Keilee and I have been spending huge amounts of time outside; walking Nomad, mowing the yard; doing art journaling outside, hula hooping in the rain and so much more.
We went to Alabama Jubilee on Memorial Day weekend. It is always one of our favorite things to do. We arrived around 6:00 AM and watched the balloons take flight. It was so gorgeous. Then we went back that night to see the Balloon Glow. It was beautiful with all the balloons glowing and they had a band that the balloons lit up to in time. Only drawback was that is was VERY crowded and there is one road in and out so it was a bit crazy getting in and out.
Keilee decided to make a rag rug a couple of days ago. She watched a video on how to cut the T-shirts. She has TONS of old shirts that she has outgrown and that people have given her so she used those. She cut them all out and rolled the material into a HUGE ball and just crocheted it. She used 25 T-Shirts. I LOVE the way it turned out. She blows my mind with the things she can do. I feel like a slug next to her!
Last night Seth, my nephew, graduated from High School. It was so bittersweet. He has always been SO important to Keilee and I and it makes me sad that he is so grown up now. But we are very proud of him too and can’t wait to see what the future holds for him.
So there’s a quick recap of our week. Not many wildly exciting things; just living our lives and trying to find beauty in small places.
Thank you all for your prayers. June will be 6 months of me being laid off. I don’t know how we make it…..it is only with amazing friends and God’s grace.
The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity. - Ulysses S. Grant
I learned there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead, others come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready, you see. Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me. – Dr. Seuss
