Soooo how's everyone doin' ?? Whoville has been awful quiet lately ... but then maybe everyone is outdoors enjoying SpringalmostSummer ! Only a few days until the Summer Solstice .... anyone do anything hedonistic sans ritualistic to celebrate? I have a telescope I like to get out and star gaze in the summer .... always helps me puts my life in perspective in case I've gotten off track .... kind of a tonic for the soul!

Our renos are nearing completion I'm happy to report. Because we received a gov't grant to do the work we had a visit from an inspector today to make sure everything is up to code .... other than a few minor details it went pretty well ! So if all goes well with the flooring we should be a family again about the middle of July ... ..... ..... .... lots of mixed emotions of course .... another period of readjustment ... but .... been there done that ... and lived to tell the tale ... so I suspect it will be done once more.

It's graduation time once again in our little town and I overhear people making plans and bustling around buying gowns and renting tux's .... its a pretty major event in a small community like ours so almost everyone gets involved in one way or another. I usually go to the hall on grad night to watch the kids do "the Grand March" .... its a kind of ritual where the grad and their escorts are presented to the audience amidst the strains of some appropriately sentimental song playing in the background .... the hall is decorated to the nine's .... transformed into a fairy land of tulle and sparkly lights and everyone gets teary eyed and nostalgic .... I love it and look forward to it every year ....

I do hope everyone is doing well out there in CC land .... I hope you are all taking some time to enjoy the warmer weather and slower pace of this time of year .... well .... I suppose slower is a relative term now .... isn't it ???

Be nice to hear how ya'll is doin .....
