Monday Medley--Merry May Monday

Happy Victoria Day to all those Canadian friends and relatives "up there". Hope you are enjoying the three-day weekend, and getting the cobwebs out of all your caravans!


Hurray for us! First fire of the season in our backyard fire pit. It was serene and beautiful and even better, no mosquitos! We burned sage and sweetgrass, honored Hecate and star-gazed. My husband had grilled burgers for dinner and then prepared the fire. Thanks, honey!


Sad news over the weekend. Two icons of the music world gone. Donna Summer and now, Robin Gibb. Did you dance to their music back in the day?


Summer seems to be well on its way. What a weekend of warm temps, sunny skies and panting dogs! Keep those water bowls full.  (you notice how dogs smell funny after being outside sometimes? and by funny I mean stinky.)

On that note, bye for now!!!

We have a saying over here. I never dance sober :-) and since I'm almost never drunk I haven't danced a lot in my life :-) :-) But I did listen to Donna Summer back in the days, the Gibbs not so much though.

Nice fire and no mosquitoes!! It's the opposite here, no fire but lots of mosquitoes :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

Happy Monday, Robin!

Cool photo of the Queen. So nice to be able to have a fire outside. And not get carried off by those stinkin' mosquitoes! :0)

Yes it's so sad about Donna Summer and Robin Gibb. Both too young to go.
I love your fire pit. I've been wanting one of those for a while, it looks great fun to use!

Robin, you are so funny at times :) I love that photo of your fire.

Yes, I did dance to both of these idols and I loved and still love their music. Wish I could still dance to it, but mt knees won't let me :)

Hugs My Friend,
Jan

Stinky dogs indeed. Our Aussie, not so much, but the boxer-bulldog mix is stinky 3 days after her bath! Congratulations on that first fire!!
