RESTFUL MEMORIAL SUNDAY

A surprise rain shower woke us up this morning. It didn't leave much in the gauge,just about 1/10th inch but was enough to make some muddy spots around the chicken pens.
I went to church early to get up some special flowers for Memorial Sunday and was nicely surprised by a beautiful bouquet of Peonies already on the communion table. Thanks to who ever donated these.
Hubbie and I had nursery duty today. We took care of 6 little ones ,mostly 2 year olds.  I was surprised this morning with this beautiful Calla Lilly plant from my secret sister.

We had lunch with #1 son,g-son and daughter as #2 son is at Mt. Mitchel golfing and d-in-love is working at her parent's restaurant.
After lunch I spent some time playing outside with g-son with our sticky ball paddles.  After everyone left hubbie and I spent a restful Sunday just moving from one place to another as the heat of the day turned into a cool evening.
Even this well constructed Robin's nest couldn't escape the high winds we had  earlier in the week with the passing storms as it blew it and it's contents of blue robin eggs out of one of our pear trees,so sad for the mama bird !
Our weather today was really nice as the 72 degree sunshine felt so good with the winds died down.
The rest of the week looks pretty good with slight chances of rain each day.
Our area is almost 12 inches of rain above normal so far this year as is a large area of the eastern part of the country.
No school tomorrow and everyone off work will make a day of catch-up work outside with the nice weather predictions.
Praying everyone has a safe Memorial Day.
Good Night and God Bless.

Enjoy your extra day. Try to do something you love to do. I think we all tend to work too much.

Blessings.

Enjoy your holiday... Don't work too hard!!!! We are doing something we seldom do: cooking steaks on the grill. We'll have baked beans and potato salad with them...

Your weather is almost identical to ours... Had lots of rain this spring --and woke up to some rain this morning. But we had a pleasant day --and expect the same all week--but warmer.

Hugs,
Betsy
