Our host is Gattina. Come join us and tell us what YOU did this past weekend! After all, you never know when you will need an alibi!
It was a big weekend here in the States. It was Memorial Day Weekend, during which time we remember all those men and women who have given their lives for our freedom. There are parades and flags are put out at the graves of Military men and women.
Memorial Day is also the unofficial start to the summer season here in New England. Our temperatures have warmed, and the ground has thawed and many people, like me, plant their gardens.
I somehow don’t recall it being this difficult to rake the dirt, set up the little fence and prepare the garden for planting. In the past I have gotten in there, and planted and not thought much about it. This year, I can feel it in several key areas of my body.
Knee, Shoulder, and Back!
Now what does this tell me? That at 53, I am not 23 any longer, and things will ache when used in ways that I do not normally use them.
I have now gotten the pea lines tied, and the peas actually planted and tomorrow Hubby will help me do the actual planting of vegetables. Then I am done.
Until the first weeding!
Meanwhile, I went to the Craft Fair, that I wrote about yesterday and had a great time. I got some infused balsamic vinegar (lemon) and I have my chicken breasts marinating for tonight. I hope they are terrific!
My daughter’s due date for Savannah Rose is approaching, and we are all on pins and needles! I now sleep with my cell phone so I can get the call which will find me on the road to the hospital!
One Jury Duty I was released from because they settled the matter out of court. My next Jury Duty will be heard after June 1st and I am hopeful that it will be settled out of court.
Greta was outside with me for most of the afternoon and she was so good. She used to roam away, but in her old age, she stays close and often brings her ball to play with me, while I work.
Lastly, a friend of mine from High School passed away. He was a fun, warm and wonderful man. In High School he made me laugh and we exchanged wicked jokes! He had an older son and grandchild a lovely wife, and two younger children. I feel so sad for them all. It wasn’t fair to any of them, to lose this wonderful man. I just hate Cancer!
