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.
With him inside to listen to the monitor I watered all my potted plants this afternoon.
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 .
The bottom pot contains "Christmas" Basil, Oregano, parsley, Ginger Mint  while the top pot contains Marjoram, Thyme, Caraway and berries and cream Mint.
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 !!
Mom came after them shortly to go home to get ready to go to a friends house to cook out tonight.
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.
I also moved some chicks around. These oldest 5 chicks were put out into the Silkie lot with their mother hen yesterday and are doing fine. 2 of them even went into the house to roost last night without any help from me.
This red Silkie hen and her 6 chicks have been in a smaller brooder box since they hatched so I cleaned this old rabbit cage that the older chicks had been in out and gave them a cooler place with lots more room to run around.
I still have the white Silkie hen with the 4 remaining chicks after I sold 5 of them Saturday and the 6 Aracuana chicks that I bought in the bigger brooder boxes.
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.
I have rested this evening trying to get my sciatic nerve to calm down after all the stooping and bending today as I planted plants and carried the panels to the garden.
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.

Boy, you sure were busy today. I love your new "plant hanger" I never thought of using an old hat rack to hand plants from. Thanks for a great idea. Have a great day. Blessings
