May Day Memory & Other Thoughts of the Day

A new month has begun. I remember, as a child, what a neighbor girl would do every year for the kids. She would make May baskets. It was so sweet of her to do such an uplifting and unselfish act. Ever since those days, I always remember the May Day baskets. All sorts of goodies that would fit in a basket or a designed cup she made look very lovely, and leave them at the door or give to you personally.  Those were the good ol’ days when I was younger and didn’t have to worry about adult stuff just yet. I wonder if this girl is married, has children of her own who now have children of their own who passed on the tradition of May Day basket making and giving them to kids in the neighborhood. I have decided to take a few minutes to see if I could find this girl, now a woman with children, on Facebook this afternoon, and I believe I found her and her Mom. I sent a friend request to both in hopes they accept my friendship. We will have to wait and see. It has been a few years now.

I have an idea for a blog piece, but dialysis has wiped me out a couple of times.  I will do my best to work on my blog piece the next couple of days after treatment. Although I do not talk about dialysis in my public diary much anymore, I can say that it has wiped me out a couple of times this week. Although I want to be on my computer a lot, the energy is not always there. Last night was the first time I’ve been on my laptop. I have this idea for a blog piece, but it has not come to fruition yet. It’s frustrating. Maybe after tomorrow’s dialysis treatment, I can begin writing my blog and have it done before Tuesday’s dialysis treatment. That is my goal.

What are your plans for the weekend?  No significant projects as of yet here because we are still abiding by the stay-home policy because of COVID-19. Dialysis in the morning, home in the afternoon, talk to my sweetheart KB and his Mom TB about Bible study and worship service on Zoom — God’s will, of course. Yes, Bible study and worship services on Zoom Saturday while I am at the clinic dialyzing. I am going to watch marathons on Hulu, Netflix, or Spectrum app this weekend. I have not viewed any TV programming at the clinic in the past month for a reason. Depending on if DKF works Sunday morning, I will be sleeping in if she doesn’t work. I have been giving her the option to work or have the day off. My body has not been breaking down with yeast infections the past several days now. She would have been here tonight between 4:30 PM – 5 PM, but she had something to do. I was asked if it would be okay to wait until Saturday morning to do any cares with me, and I told her it was okay for her to wait until morning. I do not fuss much when other things take priority in one’s life first and foremost.

Well, it is time to see what Grammarly has come up with my thoughts in four paragraphs.  Yes, I use a program called Grammarly to keep my writing in the best sentence form the application is programmed to do. I do not like grammatical errors next to the next person who may be an English teacher or a fond reader of one’s blog or diary. It is Friday evening now, and it’s time for me to get to other things other than writing in my journal. It has been a great day here. I watched Haven for a while today on Netflix after DKF left for the morning. We watched Cold Case on the Roku Channel while she was here. I did not watch Diagnosis Murder and Magnum PI today. I hope everyone has the best night and weekend possible.

Grammarly has found what I have shared with everyone who takes the time to read my blogs and diary/journal some helpful ideas.  The ideas were taken seriously.  I write in a passive voice a lot in my diary.  I am going to find ways to talk in an active voice soon.  I have to figure it all out yet.  Does anyone have any pointers?  Good night and God bless.
