May Monthly News


Welcome to the Mothers Day/Victoria Day edition of Monthly News.
For Mothers Day I got a card and a new cap from my son, and a card and beautiful flowers from the hubby. I was spoiled with a day of rest, and had dinner with my in-laws. It was wonderful!
Victoria Day Weekend was much rain as usual. I was the only one who wanted to watch the fireworks, so it didn't happen. :-(
