Happy May Day!

 What a beautiful day! All of the April showers did not fail to bring May flowers to Louisville. Most of you know that this is Derby Weekend. Today is Oaks Day, kind of like the lead up to the main event. I think it used to be a day for the locals to go to the races, but now it's almost just as big a day and Derby. I am not at the track. I am enjoying a lovely afternoon of knitting, reading and iced coffee on my deck. My daily deal package from the great folks at Missouri Star Quilts arrived in the mail. Just in case you didn't know, I have a thing for polka dots. I couldn't pass up this jelly roll called Happy Dots. So cute. I'm also very happy with my new jar caps and straws. I found these taller jars at JoAnn's and they fit perfectly in my car drink holders.  I'm sipping on some Trader Joe's iced coffee and listening to the birds and all of the private jets flying the rich and famous in to town. Hope you have picked your horse and placed your bets.
Happy Derby!
