YAY! After the past several weeks of RAIN, intermittent lightning & thunder showers...which IS unusual for our island at this time of year...WE GOT SUN!!! And blue skies! Summer is right around the corner, which means lots of beach days! Yippeeeee!
Because of all the dreary weather we'd been having, hubby & I at least got to finish renovations of 2 more rooms...complete with freshly painted vintage desks for each room! Not much sewing at all done at this time...BUT...I must get back to sewing MORE baby blankies & what we call HALI'Is (quilts) "hanai" (adopted) daughter is expecting! YAY! And she's coming to visit this summer, so I plan to have them done for her to take home to Maui when she leaves!
Have a ~blessed~ day, everyone!

When I was growing up, May Day was when EVERYONE wore their mu'umu'u or aloha shirt...and you just had to wear a lei! It's really not like that so much anymore, the schools here opt to be more "politically correct" and now they do more things like outdoors field days of play. Even "maypole" dancing! WHO DOES THAT??? All my grandchildren here attend Hawaiian Language Immersion schools, so their May Day is celebrated more with what I'm used to seeing as a child. The festivity, colors, LEIS...and added to that is their May Day performances of hula, hula, and more hula! Gotta love it!!! It isn't going to be celebrated until next Friday & I'm so excited to see what they have in store for us this year! YAY!
