Sliding Through the Months

May arrived yesterday, barely noticed during the flurry of activity that has become my daily life. 

The days are slipping by at an incredible pace and the arrival of May meant that 2019 is already 1/3 complete. My pool is only just now open, but at least I do not need to worry about opening it this weekend as I had originally planned many months ago during the deepest part of the Winter.

May Day was the nearly world-wide holiday for workers celebrated yesterday. Most of North America does not celebrate the day, but in the rest of the world it is quite the Spring holiday. May Day and International Workers Day, although both celebrated on May 1st are not the same holiday!

While the rest of the world was celebrating the arrival of May, we here in the U.S. were working, barely taking notice. 

In celebration of May Day, I was on a baseball field last evening with most of my team, working out getting ready for Saturday's game--which stands a good chance of being rained out given the arrival of thunderstorms during the next couple of days. 

But, at least May has arrived! The days will push past 14 hours of sunlight on the 6th and I may even be able to get in some twilight golfing--when it is not raining.

Happy May! May the skies be clear and your days be long.
