May the Fourth, also known as Star Wars Day. Its use was first noted on 4th May 1979 when Maggie Thatcher took over as Prime minister of UK and the Conservatives congratulated her in the London Evening News by the statement “May the fourth be with you Maggie, congratulations” The month of May also seems to be full of weddings and birthdays. One version of how May was named is after the Greek goddess Maia, the god of fertility, hence the weddings and birthdays! Mays birthstone is the emerald. In the Catholic world May is the month of Mary, the mother of Jesus. in the Americas May is the month when we celebrate Mothers.
It is some good friends anniversary today, a significant one. We went to their wedding a long time ago when we all lived in Montreal and were very young, time flies when you are having fun!!!
Spent the day cleaning as i had neglected this last week, it was much cooler today but the trees are sprouting and some daffodils have come into flower at last. I hope the Magnolia tree flowers this year, we had no flowers on it last year, I just hope the wind isn’t’ too strong.
