April - a memoriable month

Looking back over the month of April, I am amazed by how eventful it was for me.

I made it through the A to Z Challenge.
While this was accomplished by hundreds of bloggers,
 for me it was especially important because I "tanked" just before the finish line last year.

 I turned 65!
 It seemed like a biggy birthday for some reason.
  Not so much for the actual number,
 but because if you think of yourself 10 years from now
 (or 20 years from now as my blog suggests),
 I would be 75 or 85. 
 Yikes!!  
Stop thinking about it. 
OR
Think how great it will be to have those next 20 years no matter how big the number is!
Yes, that is it.  
Mental Adjustment Made!
Celebrate 65!!
Celebrate 75 or 85!! 

I picked up my walking early in the month - but got sick for 2 weeks
 and fell off that stupid wagon again.
I sure am tired of climbing back in the wagon all the time.
I wish my wagon had seat belts.

I reconnected with an old friend from about 45 years ago.
How often does that happen in your life?
For me it was twice - only last time it was with a cousin.

Crossed the 100 followers mark.
Now that is BIG news!
Thank you all for clicking the "follow" button.

Finally, Annie, the African Violet, Lives!!!
She was featured on Day 1 of the challenge.
Look at alllll those beautiful blooms.
I think she likes me!  :-) 
Annie, the African Violet, 30 days later!

Onward
Welcome to May!
My favorite month of the year for two glorious reasons.

Reason 1
My son takes a wife this month.  And we love her.

Reason 2
Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival is the first weekend in May!

  7. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! It's been so long since I've blogged with any consistency...but when I do I've always enjoyed when you have commented...so thanks :)

    The part in your post about the wagon made me laugh! Seat belts...I'm not even sure my wagon has seats or wheels for that matter! In fact I think someone stole my wagon! Or perhaps I drove it off a cliff somewhere? LOL
