The Long Weekend - Memorial Day Weekend

The end of May is right on us and the heat of summer will be here before we know it. I have to say that I can't remember a spring that has lasted this long in years. If it was not for the pollen I could enjoy it more. I stopped taking allergy shots in 2006 and although this year has been worse than the last few, it is still not as bad as the years before allergy shots! Even with all the stuff out in the air it did not stop me from being out on this past Memorial Day weekend.

Saturday the boys (my 3 grandsons) came to visit for a bit. Caleb will soon be 13 and he is into girls now. Oh lord, help me! DJ is 4.5 and Braden is 2.5. Hands full for sure. We took them out to play in the yard but they did not seem to want to mind much, and they running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

Caleb went under the deck and of course the other two have to follow. He found a family of lizards. Braden wanted to pick one up so I told him to go for it. He tried but it kept wiggling away from him. Caleb picked it up…..on a gardening tool, he was not about to touch it.

But Braden has no fear. He saw a worm and wanted to know what it was, then he wanted to hold it. Nana, not being afraid of a worm, picked it up and put it in his hand. He thought that was neat.

Then on Saturday evening I went to Theresa's, she was cooking out. Little did I know that she was cooking everything. She made chicken, steak, burgers and hotdogs. The KING (my dog) went away really full.

Theresa had made some Watermelon Fresca – not bad, but I think I would rather eat my watermelon. We added mint, lime and ice to the Fresca. Like I said, pretty tasty. Course she sent me home with some and I got to take some actual watermelon home also. YUMMY…it was a good one.

Sunday I got up and had a bit on watermelon for breakfast, got my shower and got ready to leave the house. Took my dog to mom's house for the day. My friend Brian picked me up at 10:30 and we headed to a family reunion /Memorial Day cookout in Franklin TN. It was fun and there was lots of food. Brian's grandson, Nolan was here with his dad, Eric and Mom, Janna. Nolan is such a sweetie and there is nothing like a big ole toothless smile from a baby.

Had a pretty full day on Sunday and since it don’t take a lot to wear me out, I slept about 4 hours Monday afternoon. Then I cleaned the craft room and actually got in there to do some priming. Projects to come.

Thanks for stopping in,
