THANKFUL MEMORIAL DAY 2014
The picture above is of a honoring ceremony at one of the local cemeteries where my father-in-law is buried. He was a veteran of WWII.
My day started off with work in the garden as soon as chores were done this morning. #1 son had some time to help with the heavy cattle panels we are using this year for our beans to climb on.
I pulled some weeds to give the chickens and replanted some cucumbers that got killed in the last cold spell. Even though the temperature didn't get below freezing the okra and cucumbers couldn't take the upper 30's temps.
We stopped at the feed store on the way home to pick up some chicken feed and get some okra seed.
They had sold completely out of okra seed. I guess lots of folks have the same problem I do !!
At home the clouds started to roll in and look very threatening. I planted some of the plants I bought over the week end while hubbie planted some gourds seed. The rain started and ran us under the porch to sit and watch the storm as it passed to the west of us and dropped down the mountain giving us only a light shower.
All the kids are coming for a cook out this evening so we moved the grill under the outside patio. Guess we will just leave it there as it seems every time we need to use it the rain comes.
Everyone came around six this evening and we grilled out steaks and hambugers along with some baked beans that Rebekah had made , twice baked potatoes that d-in-love made, a fruit salad and dip that daughter made, and some homemade strawberry ice cream that churned on the porch while we ate, yummmy !!
A great way to end a long weekend.
Good Night and God Bless.
