If we want to embrace life, we also have to embrace chaos.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Breathing Room

May at our house is commonly referred to as May-hem. This year, May assaulted us with six birthdays, a wedding anniversary, a graduation party and Mother’s Day…and the month isn’t over yet. One birthday was a surprise party at Busch Stadium in St. Louis the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend; and then we turned around and drove to Kansas City to celebrate Mom’s Day and some more birthdays on Sunday. Add to that my adjunct teaching end-of-the-semester student presentations and there’s been little time to even breathe.

Oh, and Peanut and her Mama started preschool and a new job on top of everything else! So do some more math by adding in getting used to new routines. Work has ramped up to crazy-busy status.

But wait….there’s more! But this event warrants a post of its own…as soon as I can find the time! 🙂

I finally got outside to take some late spring photos late Sunday afternoon. This sweet little viola is from that outing. Hopefully I’ll be showing you more in a few days.

Organized chaos. Yep, that pretty much describes our corner of the world. I swear I met myself on the road the other day, and it seems like forever since I put words together here. I’m trying to keep current with everyone’s posts and updates, but it’s evident I can either write/post or read/comment. And I’m not doing a very good job of either one these days.

Breathing room. Very little of that going on these days. At the moment, we might be in a short  lull in the schedule, but it’s more likely I’ve just forgotten something.

If the above quote is true, you can count that we’re embracing life with a bear hug!

Linking up with Tuesday Muse and Texture Tuesday.

  1. Yes, Lisa, this has been a busy month for so many bloggers I blog with – LOTS going on.

    But hey, that’s spring, right? Renewal and activity.

    No worries my friend, your readers totally understand 🙂

    LOVE the photo of the pansies! In fact, I was on the phone with a friend of mine about an hour ago, and he and I were talking about pansies and what a happy and cheery-looking flower they are.

    Enjoy your week!



  2. I love your words for what is going on … May-hem and Organized chaos. The photo is beautiful and shows the beauty of Mother Nature in the Spring.
