The May long weekend holds such promise and propulsion. We put into action the plans we have made and carefully considered through the colder months: we plant the garden, open the pool, and begin our bucket list of summer adventures. This year, friends are visiting from BC, so we have taken full advantage of playing tourist. We have been to Parliament Hill, the Experimental Farm, tulip Festival, the hospital (oops!), and Mer Bleu. We also took a little jaunt to Montreal to visit the Botanical Gardens, Insectarium and Old Montreal. The wild winds blow in warm, beckoning us forth. We always answer the call.
To be home with my girls, unconfined by any real schedule, is a gift I am trying to appreciate more often. When we wake up and the sun is shining, we have a plethora of possibilities in front of us. All we have to do is ask, "what do we most want to do today?" and then we do that. It is wonderful, this freedom. The people and circumstances that lead to this freedom deserve my gratitude.

I have more thoughts to share, but it is Sunday, the sky is blue, the wind is light and there are a gaggle of girls asking me to blow bubbles. You know where I'll be.
