Our spring is very up and down. I've hugged my little pet therapist more than a few times in recent days.
The weather is "up." It has been beautiful -- and I'm finally feeling brave enough to put some things in the ground!
I've been feeling pretty good lately -- which means I am going to the gym! I may have talked Rick into taking a one-evening salsa class (I'll believe it when I get him in the door!). Dancing is the kind of exercise I can get into!
Greg graduated from Kendall College of Art and Design on Saturday. Three cheers! (I'll add a photo or two to this post as soon as they are downloaded!)
On the more melancholy side, I'll soon be saying farewell to my friend Jane Rosemont -- artist extraordinaire, good friend, blogger. She'll be moving to Santa Fe. Our art group said farewell to her last week and Friday was the opening for her final art show here. I'll have more on that later, too.
We're dealing with some family illness in our extended family, which is deeply distressing and concerning, so please send good vibes, prayers or wishes to us for Rick's uncle, Bob's, recovery.
And, it's Mother's Day -- a day that gives me some pause. I'm missing mom, as I always do. I think it was last year when I wrote this post -- When Mother's Day Doesn't Apply. If you're new to the Gypsy, please link!

"Sunday, May 9, is the last day to enter a at Oh Books, Oh Paper, Oh, Life! Two lucky folks could win either Peter Mayle's "Hotel Pastis" or A.S. Byatt's "Posession." Since I am a lowly cat and don't read, I can only hope my Mummy-Cat enters and wins something she can read to me."
