May Day ❀

It's the 1st of May!

Happy May Day to everyone.

Time is going much too fast. I do wish it would slow down so we can all slow down. One thing I love is that real soon meetings and many responsibilities stop for the summer months. Although May is still a busy month, but weather normally very nice. We have had lovely weather this weekend. Many great walks, some yard cleaning and believe it or not some spring cleaning inside. Sometimes I am much more energetic to clean inside when the weather is beautiful. Odd! Also when my husband is around I like to do things inside, I think it's just having someone around and it's more fun.

So I put away all the hats, gloves, scarves, boots and winter outerwear. All put away and it feels so good. I feel so much lighter and organized. I also cleaned my closet that was truly a disaster. I can't believe I am going to show you a before and after picture. I really thinned out my wardrobe. I tend to be a saver and it was getting crazy so I took the plunge and I definitely feel more freed and accomplished.

                                                                      Before disaster

                                                               Tidy and thinned out

I could show you more pictures, but you get the idea. It's much better which makes me much better!

I have some great pictures of the developing buds and our walk with Jack.

Here are some scenes from our 2.30 mile walk. It was at a fast pace, so not too many pictures. Honey didn't want me to stop and ruin our heart rates.

Here's Jack taking himself for a walk. He does this all the time and it really is quite cute.

I am working on a crocheting fun project. I will show you after I get more done. I had to frog what I had done because I was off count.

Thanks for visiting and thank you for all your kind comments. I will be back soon. Until then have fun, laugh often, and smile.    



  1. Ohhhh... I need to get rid of things I don't wear in my closet and put the winter things away. You're a good influence on me! But you're also a bad influence.. after seeing your W&K wedding goodies you got I went to the CK website and plunked down some $$$ for a new bag, kitchen tin set and .. 1 other thing which I can't remember. LOL

    Hugs, Teresa

  2. Great organisation, your closet's looking really good and some lovely photos of your walk.

    Clever Jack, taking himself for a walk, I wonder if he could be trained to pick up a few groceries too, lol.

    Jack is so cute.
    Look forward to seeing you new WIP.
    Love Tickety-boo

  5. We seem to live parallel lives, Robin! I've just spent some time clearing out my wardrobe too, inspired by a charity bag for filling which arrived the other day! (And also because I couldn't find half the things I wanted!)Yours looks soooo tidy now! (I am pleased because I found some shoes and jeans I forgot I had!) I loved the picture of Jack - so funny and cute!Enjoy your lovely weather and your walks and have a happy week.

  6. Your wardrope looks great now, Robin, and you left all my favorite colors there...pinks and blues... :) I love May too, and as soon as our weather allows (snowing all day today), I'll put the winter-gear somewhere out of sight too!

    Happy and sunny first week of May!


  7. Well done Robin, the wardrobe looks great now and you have photos to prove it! Your plants are coming along really well. Jack looks like a very sweet dog, give him a big pat from me (and Billy). Enjoy the sunshine in May,

  8. Robin you did a great job onthe closet, now I think I need to give mine a go. Jackis the cutest! My parents had a Golden that used to do the same thing. He was adorable.
    Have a great day,.

  9. Doesn't it feel great to have a clean-out! It's lovely to see all those beautiful spring pictures. Enjoy the lovely month of May!

  10. Those pictures of before and after of your closet are soooooo satisfying! Love Vanessa xxx
