Memorial Day

Having had a busy week with the family, I decided to start the weekend early and take today off! I'm still struggling with spring cleaning, so I've decided to use a couple mornings to do some cleaning; but the afternoons will be mine for sewing. I hope to have a finish or two to show.

My dad and my brothers were both vets. They have both passed away, and we have their metal cemetery markers in one of the gardens; so I'll post a flag at each one. We have a flag for the front of the house and one for the deck. The weather should be good for keeping them out all weekend.

Larry and Randy will be golfing everyday, so that means picnic food. Hopefully Jenny will come over when Randy golfs; I have a painting project I'd like her to help me with. Julie and Travis will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary this weekend, too. Already it's sounding like a busy weekend.

Please remember to thank a vet. And have a great weekend!

You have a wonderful weekend too! I will be hauling eight yards of compost to the new raised garden beds! I'm tired already! I probably can't get back to my sewing until Sunday afternoon, but am anxious to finish up my quilt!
Blessings to you and your family this weekend!

Mary, do have a fun weekend mixed in with the painting and cleaning! I have tooooooo much to do, overwhelmed with the thoughts right now, but I will be working at it! On Saturday in the middle of the day we have an open house to attend, don't feel like I should give up the time, but feel obligated... ugh not a good feeling!

I also have a family of Vets, and I DO want to honor flag will be flying with pride! Have a wonderful weekend!
