Happy May! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Boston. It was a great city to walk around and walk we did! We took in historical sites, the Fine Arts Museum, the USS Constitution, and the JFK Presidential Library. The marathon was quite the event to watch. Loren was a little disappointed in his time. The weather was a factor as it was mid 70's and we have hardly had a day above 60 here so the heat got to him a bit. However he did not collapse or have to be helped across the finish line like others I saw so he did great! He's already thinking he can run it faster next time! Finally the weather is going to be above 70 here this week. We have already mowed the lawn once so I guess spring has arrived! I can tell that outdoor activities will start cutting into my sewing time. Time for gardening and fishing and graduations and weddings! Spring is barely here and already the summer is filling up! How to get all done. Why does it always have to be about time management?? Happy Quilting, Pam
