No, I’m not in distress…well no more than usual. So why am I calling May Day, you may ask?
Well, that should be easy. Today is May 1st. Also known as “May Day”. In my mind I have visions of young ones and fair lasses dancing around the May Pole.
Which really is a lovely image…if you don’t get too wrapped up in wondering about the original meaning. I’m quite happy to stick with the celebration concept, so that is what I go with!
Of course, May Day could also be about distress…you know, a call for help! Which is a little appropriate for me this month as my mum’s birthday is on May 3rd and then Mother’s Day is on the 12th I have to figure out what to get the woman who has everything she needs or wants. AND get it shipped…VERY SOON!!
I’m thinking I “may” have that covered and will take photo’s before I send it to share.
Other distressing May Day issues…I can’t for the life of me come up with some sort of theme for this month. If I were in the Northern Hemisphere is would be easy…SPRING! However, here in the southern hemisphere, it’s getting colder and the days are shorter which leads me to wanting to hibernate. It should be interesting to see what I get up to this month.
Any suggestions?? You could really help me sort out my May Day! Dilemma.
