A Vintage May Day


I love this old vintage calendar page and sentiment.

My May Day  was a bit unusual.  It started out like an ordinary day. Coffee & yogurt.   Tidied up. Made cookie dough to bake cookies tomorrow.  Bible study homework. And then the phone rang....

My daughter called and said that she had just been to the doctor's office and discovered she had a flat tire. Road side assistance was on its way but it would take an hour and a half.  My sweet husband and I drove to where she was to bring her a little something to eat and to keep her company.  I really didn't want her to be alone waiting in her car.  She's now 39 weeks pregnant.  It took about 25 minutes to get there and then we visited in the car until the man came.  And of course, it was pouring rain. After the donut tire was put on and road side assistance gone, we all drove to Costco to get a new tire.  Her original tire was shot. After another hour, everyone was on their way home.

Home again before the REAL heavy rain & thunderstorm hit. Little Bear was happy to see us.  BOOM the thunder rolled and Little Bear hid under the bed for the next couple of hours.

Oh bother!

The storm passed.  Little Bear emerged.  Dinner was served and now for a bit of quiet time before bed.

How was your May Day?

  2. I am glad you and your sweet husband rode to the rescue! We do not leave a 39 week pregnant lady all alone!! It was quiet here. I did my cleaning and then went to a program featuring Chonda Pierce, a Christian entertainer. I went with an old friend and we had a good time.

    1. Arlene, I don't know why Chandra Pierce sounds familiar. I am going to have to google her and read more.

  3. Oh my! So glad you were able to be there to rescue your daughter! She must have panicked a bit when her tire went flat and so relieved that you were able to come! Such a good Mom and Dad for making sure she had a new tire, too. My May Day was not as 'exciting'......just a day at home catching up on housework and made the hubs some home-made soup and bread. Sending hugs xo Karen

    1. Diane, the sun did shine! I was so happy and tried to spend as much time as I could outside. I think we are due for more rain tomorrow.

  5. We still care about our babies, whether they are grown or not, don't we, Gina? I'm sure your daughter was most appreciative for you and your hubby being her Good Samaritans.

  9. We had a bit of a rain shower yesterday, but are still having pretty white showers of cherry petals whirling their way into May as well. I am so glad you were able to be with your daughter! xx

  10. Sorry to hear about your daughters troubles with her tire, I bet she was so happy to see you two pull up and keep her company, probably not a day you had planned but a good day none the less, anything time spent with our kids is a good day :)
