Our birthday month, we are looking forward to our trip to explore the southwest. Even with a vacation to break up the month, it’s still a busy one. Watching the leaves transition to these bright colors before they gently grace the ground, and give us much raking to do.
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
For Mother’s Day, Karla and I went to help my mom out in her garden. Karla mostly did the work, she’s the big gardener in the relationship. I do the clearing out and building in the yard, we’re a good team. I love how great she is with my mother, and my mother loves to cook for her, so it works out.
It was a very very cold winter, but Spring slowly made its way around. Been playing with the Mark II, cannot wait until everything is in full bloom. We’ve been getting a lot of rain lately, so I hope the saying April Showers brings May flowers will ring true… Loving the sunshine, and the warmer weather.
