Thoughts on the End of May

I almost find it difficult to believe that May is coming to a close. Time seems to move faster the older one gets. I remember that, as a little girl, April, May and June just crawled by. It felt like my birthday would never come, and when it did I knew that it would be forever until school was done for the summer. Now, spring is done in the blink of an eye, and only summer lingers. (Mostly because the heat is often unbearable.) I am glad, though, that I have taken some time this month to literally stop and smell the flowers. It will still be sad to see my favourite month end. But, tomorrow I am spending a few hours at the spa, so it will be a luxurious send-off. 🙂

And just a thought about gas prices… Americans are currently paying an average for US$2 a gallon for gas. After a little conversion magic, I have discovered that here in Canada we are paying an average of US$2.65 a gallon. Something to remember the next time you pull up to the pump. (Here is an interesting, but slightly outdated, link from the CBC with average gas prices per litre in Canadian dollars. There are approximately 3.8 litres to a U.S. gallon.)

    Why is it that life speeds up the older we get? My first visit to your site and it’s very calming. This is a good thing for me. Anyway, I’ll be back.

    I think the last gas price I saw here in Washington was $2.34 a gallon. And it is promising to go up too. OUCH!
