It's hard to believe that June is tomorrow. Where did this month go? I've been so preoccupied. May was a good month, full of life.
+ I started off the month by making May Day baskets
+ I knocked out several items on my fix list around the house. It feels good to not have them hanging over my head.
+ Purchased a new refrigerator...finally
+ Attended cc's family reunion
+ Celebrated my dad's birthday, cousin's birthday, cc's dad's birthday, and my brother's anniversary
+ Received really good news from cc's sister+ Found the cutest pet rabbit in my driveway and provided a safe home for him...for a week
