May was a busy month of appointments.
We opened our pool on the first week of May.
May 7th & 8th we had snow flurries and light snow showers - only a dusting...but still not the greatest spring weather. But the snow didn't keep our hummingbirds from showing up.. first sighting was May12th. All the summer birds have been returning.

January 2017 I had 8430 stitches completed. Now at 9490 stitches complete.
That's about it for my stitching last month because once I was finishing up the NMI kit, I realized that I had several other smalls that needed to be finished... so I spent some time in my sewing room and finished a few other projects.

These are for an idea I have for my brother who is a traveling nurse
Dad is doing better.. He is on a more frequent schedule with some of his doctors... but the new stronger compression stockings have helped.He also had his eyes checked (cataract still there but not time for surgery), hearing aids adjusted after ears checked, various blood tests due to the increased dosage of lasix, 2 visits with the vascular doctor, and a visit with his urologist.
Mom had her annual with primary and blood tests.
DH had a few dental visits...and he just had his sleep study - still waiting on the results to see if they think he has sleep apnea.
Samantha is enjoying the new smells and sounds that come with the change is weather.
Until next time -
I'll leave you with this lovely scenic,
Have a wonderful day!
