happy may day

during a brief (kansan) period of my childhood, we actually made little baskets of flowers and put them on people's doorsteps on may day. maybe it was just one year, but i remember it as if it was one of those things we always used to do. wouldn't it be nice to dance around a maypole right about now?

speaking of dancing, check out my flickr photos of bean and her posse at rock n roll sushi, post-formal dance this weekend. isn't she the purtiest?

yesterday was a better day at the location-formerly-known-as-casco-bay-books, from what m reported. our friend dancer lady helped him box up most of the books, and we took a bunch of them to the library (which will accept donations of up to five boxes at a time, and you can just put them on the loading dock). we have six boxes for the itty bitty library at bean's school, too. we found a wonderful home for several counters, and another home for a table or two. next project = bring home the espresso machine and put it on the kitchen counter. just to, you know, see how it feels to have it here. basically, does it overwhelm the entire kitchen? is there really room for it? do we care??

bunny, bunny (as Gilda Radner used to say...see Wikipedia)! I am sure Auntie Susie left baskets on May Day during my Kansas days.

Love the sushi pictures! In California, we always made May baskets for all the neighbors. We wove baskets from construction paper and filled them with flowers from our garden. When Charlotte was 3, she made friends with our neighbor, Betty Glidden, who's now 100 and lives at The Atrium, by leaving her a May basket!

i know -- and by the way, by "isn't she the purtiest," i certainly didn't mean, "isn't she purtier than any of her friends," i just meant, "wow! doesn't she look stunning?"

yes, time for a visit, before she's off to graduate school!!
