When I originally made plans for the month of May, I had no idea how hectic my life would really be. Between my daughter Becky's graduation from Arizona State University and my mother' hospitalization and subsequent move to a skilled nursing center, I squeezed in my job and guests for the special occasion.
But, today is Saturday and my favorite day of the weekend. The graduation is over, although another one looms in the next week. Yet, today I get a dose of normalcy I missed so far in May.
While Becky enjoys her weekend away in Portland, I went to the Desert Botanical Gardens with Ashley and her Dad. What an exquisite walk. I have been to the gardens many times before, however each time is a unique experience as you can see from the pictures.
