Thankful Memorial Day to you !!!
As we remember all those who fought and lost their lives so that we could have the freedoms we have on this day makes it a sad but proud day for many families. Interesting info on this wall !!!
Thanks to the snow days this past winter today is like any other day for us here. G-daughter arrived at 7am as mom and g-son went to school. It is an early dismissal day for g-son but d-in-love has to work a regular schedule today.
Daughter got a chance to celebrate with some of the high school students where she teaches as she drove one of the bus loads of students out to Forest Lawn cemetery to take part in the Memorial day celebration out there. There are many veterans buried here including hubbie's dad who served in WW11. This is the North Henderson HS chorus .
G-daughter was out of sorts today for some reason and didn't want to go back to sleep. Finally falling asleep for about 45 minutes.
I got up and did the morning chores feeling a bit out of sorts myself this morning after not sleeping very good last night after my nose stopped up and my throat felt sore.
Thankfully after a hot cup of coffee and breakfast I felt much better.
G-daughter acted like she felt better after she ate also.
Hubbie tried putting a new antennae on the kitchen TV since the reception in there keeps getting worse and we have to keep moving the antennae around all the time.
While he worked on that which took all morning, and then it didn't work so he had to put it back like it was with the old antennae, I got laundry started.
G-daughter refused her late morning nap so she played while I changed the furniture covers and vacuumed in the living room.
I did 3 loads of regular laundry and an extra load of bed sheets today which I hung out in the "solar" dryer. It is a hot day with temps in the mid 80's and sunshine so the air conditioning inside feels good today.
We had lunch then hubbie went to pick up g-son while I got g-daughter down for her afternoon nap.
G-son was glad to get some time off school before the EOG test start tomorrow.
I also got all the new plants from the Garden Jubilee set out in their pots. I bought these hanging pots at Ikea last month when we were there and have been waiting for these $1 herbs to fill them up. I thought I was going to hang them in the kitchen but there is never any sunlight in there so I already had a hat rack here so this made a perfect place in this sunroom window for it .
I also planted more Basil and several mint varieties in outside pots including Spearmint, Peppermint, Orange, Lavender and a couple very aromatic soft leaf herbs to ward off mosquitoes under the front porch and the outside covered patio.
G-son was excited when he got to go get his sister out of her crib when she woke up. She loves him so much !!
Hubbie and I worked in the garden a while this evening. We got all our panels put up so the beans and cucumbers will have something to climb when their runners begin to form.
After supper hubbie and I sat out in the outside patio and watched the rain come across the bottoms until the cool breeze that brought it ran us inside for the evening.
We are getting rain tonight from the outer bands of Bonnie as she is still sitting over the coast after her landfall yesterday.
As this Memorial day ends I say prayers of thanks to all the fallen soldiers over all the years of wars.
May they know that their sacrifices did not go unappreciated. God bless their families.
Thankful for a loving caring God.
God Bless and Good Night.
