My cousin, Judy, posted this meme and it has been so true for the month of June. It seems that June arrived this year, not only busting out all over, but she took off running at a full sprint!
During quarantine, the months did seem to drag on for many folks. I was content with that as I felt as though I had more deck time. I am certain I did not but it did feel that way.
Grandma Donna always urged us, “don’t wish your life away” whenever any of us would claim we wanted to be an older, or ahead a grade or two in school. It never stopped me from thinking ahead – I was raised by Mother to be a planner, organized!
A week from this Monday is July Fourth, to be celebrated on Monday, July 5th. I am already trying to figure out if it is possible to make my annual pilgrimage to Centerville to take command of my old second floor studio of McCutcheon Music to take photographs of the parade. My brain says it’s all set to go but the body will dictate the end game plan.
It’s June 25th the birthday of my bonus sister, Laura Moore Parker, the daughter of Mama Kay (and Papa John). Both our mothers were so thoughtful to bear us three months (to the day) apart, raise us in two different states, only for us to come together these past 15+ years.
It’s nearing 10:00 AM. I’ve had a peaceful, relaxing morning. Three Mary Lincoln day lilies are dancing in this nice, strong breeze while the cloudy, overcast sky threatens and teases us with rain.
Make it a great day before June is over!
