Happy holiday weekend to everyone!

Memorial day plans at your home? Will your college students be at home?

Do you have a local parade or traditional picnic? What is on your menu this weekend?
Will you be going swimming?

Do you go shopping at any of the big sales?

Our long weekend was last weekend, Victoia Day (as in good old Queen Victoria). Well, it is called that in most parts of the country,except in Québec. There is is called Dollard D'Ormeaux Day.

People have fireworks etc... but it is mostly a weekend

My boys are in Texas. They will be attending a picnic with their cousins at my sister and brother in laws home.
They will be having Cajun BBQ.
We will be going over in July to see them all and staying with my sis and brother in law.
My oldest got promoted, his younger brother said he has a huge office with corner windows and conference table. He called it living large. :)
I spent this morning swimming after weeding in my garden. I found 19 caterpillars had devoured my parsley. I put them in a jar and found out online they belong to the swallowtail butterfly so I took them back to the parsley pot. While moving the pot under another palm I got hit by a stick. Should be fun going to work today with a black eye! Sure Is fun getting old.. Bifocals probably saved my eyeball just not from seeing the stick. I can't seem to figure out how to get a photo on here from this iPad or I'd give you a good morning chuckle. Poked in the eye by a tree who obviously did not want caterpillars under it ;)

I have to work tonight and tomorrow evenings, I'm off on monday we will be going to a boat parade with fireworks and eating potluck picnic ...I'm taking our ice cream maker and blueberries

We are having a fun day hotdogs grilled at work. Can you believe we are starting the back to school display work now?

No big plans for us. Our youngest got home from college Thursday. She and I are going to see a play tonight. We are going to paint our dining room and kitchen this weekend, so I need to go get the paint and supplies today. I'm hoping we do some grilling on Monday. Our town has Fiesta Days this weekend, which is a big local celebration with a parade, carnival rides, food etc. We might swing by that on the way home from church tomorrow.

I can't believe they are doing back to school when my DS still has to go to school until about June 20!

We're having whomever of dh's family over that wants to, tomorrow, hoping it'll be nice enough to be our first pool party. A friend and I went to our botanical garden today and had a great time - got sprinkled on but not too badly. DS18 is going to take Amtrak to visit his gf in Chicago Mon-Wed since he doesn't work til Friday as of the shifts assigned yesterday, so dh and I will have Monday to ourselves. Hoping to keep it relaxing!

"All Gave Some... Some Gave All"

I will be spending my weekend thinking of my sons' friends who will never be attending a Memorial Day picnic again, as well as those who no longer have legs to run or arms to hug.
