My Memorial day started with getting to sleep a little later than normal as schools are closed today.
Hubbie and I got the morning chores done and then went to pick up animal feed and stopped by the fresh meat market to stock our freezer for a few more months.
#1 son has the day off and after he and g-son spent a leisurely morning together he fished the afternoon away.
D-in-love worked at her parents restaurant this morning and her and g-son went to Linconton,NC to visit her grandmother this afternoon.
#2 son was also off today and slept in after a hard day of golfing yesterday then spent the afternoon mowing grass and doing yardwork before coming here for a nice visit and a late supper of left-overs.
Daughter was the only one who worked today. For the school system it was an optional workday and she had some work that was better done while she had no interuptions.
Hubbie and I worked in the yard after lunch,him mowing and me pulling weeds and watering potted plants.
Then we worked in our garden for awhile,tilling and putting up the orange fabric for the green beans to climb.
My favorite old Rose is really showing itself this year with more blooms than it has had in a long time.
Tonight when I checked my e-mail I was reminded about the free service info available this weekend on ancester.com. I spent some time looking up family members and saving draft info I found. I found some of my dad's brothers but didn't find anything for him.
Sadly the old WWWI cards couldn't be read.My printer went on the blink so I just had to save the cards to my computer for printing later.
I prayerfully and humbly thank the fallen soldiers tonight and also for those who are in harms way now.
Grateful for a blessed day and for the good news of Jesus Christ our Savior.
Good Night and God Bless
