The Merry Month Of May

The month of May is always good to me.  There are a lot of happenings this month.  I met my best friend the day before my birthday and my brother and sister on my birthday.  We went to Macaroni Grill, my favorite.  I got lots of goodies from family....foods that I love and seldom ever buy for myself, especially the Spanish olives.  Isn't this ladybug journal cute that Nel got me?

A special book from my sister, chocolate from my brother, gift card from my best friend, and Jess gave me the loveliest rose gold bracelet.  I don't wear jewelry often, but she knows I love bracelets.
Took a few pictures while waiting to get an oil change, and saw not only one penny, but two pennies on the ground.
There's a festival in my town every Spring.
I've had this tea cup for years.  It's from the English Rose collection, and I've never been able to part with it, as it is a favorite of mine.
We've had a few rainy days in May.
It's raining right now!

Flower beds at the church on
Mother's Day.
Nel, the pasta sauce with artichokes was pretty good.  I added a bit of sugar, cause I like sweetness to my spaghetti sauce.
So many Lilies around my town.
Yes, the merry month of May
is good to me.

Dearest Sheri, I love to see how you see the world. The details you capture are splendid and evoke a kind, gentle and focused mind. What a lovely place you live in! Enjoy that cup of tea my friend, and I am looking forward to a quiet cup myself, as school draws to a close.

Sorry I haven't been around it my grandson's graduation weekend and we had tons of company.
Those photos - you take them with a camera or phone? Camera I bet.
We used to have a Macaroni Grill near us and it closed. :(
That pasta with the artichokes looks good and I know where she got it. And the Queen Olives.
I found a penny on the ground just about an hour ago when I picked my car up from being worked on. Funny - not many people think pennies are with it.
Love the tea rose cup and almond cookies.
My favorites were the rain photos - loved the rain on that rose! So pretty.
Glad you had a wonderful mother's day.
Love, Sandie

So much goodies for you Sheri
and you deserve them all and more.
Happy Birthday!♥
Love your all pics
and your Anne Klein cuff/bracelet looks so chic.
Just like you, I love a little sweetness on my spaghetti,
and yours look so delish.
Your carnival/festival pics take me back to the time
I was young and when my son was so into carousels.
Those were happy times.
Love your teacup, and your last pic is so charming...♥♥♥

Wow! Sheri, you sure had a lovely birthday. Happy Birthday wishes sent your way. Love your teacup too. I think you family and friends know what to gift you with. The bracelet is so pretty too.

I think May would be a lovely month for a birthday -- and you are certainly making the best of it and it has been treating you well indeed. Lovely photos capturing your special days and lovely presents. I send you belated but very happy birthday greetings and urge you to "keep the party going" for as long as anyone wants to celebrate with you!

Debbie Nolan said...

Sheri it looks like you had a great birthday. Your adding of sugar to spaghetti sauce sounds like me. I too love a bit of sweetness in my sauce. Yes the Merry Month of May has to be one of my favorite months of the year too. Thanks for sharing all those lovely photos. Hugs!

Rose said...

Oh, Happy Birthday! It looks like you had such a lovely day! And got some lovely gifts, too.

Sheri, love that teacup! The cookies look good, too. I just happen to have the tea to go with them--doing a great tea giveaway this week! Happy Spring.

Zaa said...

Happy Belated Birthday Sheri... OMG ... what yummy gifts ... of course a girl can always use a beautiful rose gold bracelet( it's my style) Ha Ha ... and I wouldn’t mind dipping into that olive jar for tasty little nip. It sounds like you have had a beautiful May . The joy and beauty is sure to continue throughout the summer especially since you found “two" good luck pennies ... Belated Birthday HUGS Sweet Lady.

The Liberty Belle said...

So many nice things. The journal is cute and I really like the bracelet. Have a lovely day.

Carola Bartz said...

I love May, too, even though it's one of the busiest months at work for me and very exhausting. Still, I love my garden and how beautiful it is at this time. That milka chocolate in your photo used to be my favorite chocolate when I was young. They used to make a mocca one which was excellent. Unfortunately they don't make it anymore which is a shame.

Emanuela @ My Little Inspirations said...

I love the bracelet and...the sweets! I also love the pictures you took of those stunning flowers!
