I apologize for not having my usual "visiting" day but I am prepping for tomorrow and have more to do today than my usual light chores on a Sunday. Am I having company you ask? No, it's me and the girls but I heard once that you should give yourself what you don't get from others and I have always designed my life that way. I would invite people over but that would mean I would have to REALLY gussie up the house and I don't have that much energy to entertain like that any more. But I do make the holidays special for myself as I spend them alone. So, this Memorial Day I have planned my meal (food is ALWAYS a big part of my celebrations) of barbecued chicken on the grill, potato salad and baked beans with strawberry shortcake for dessert. I went to the Dollar store yesterday and bought some flags in different sizes and I decorated outside and made the little "vignette" above for my kitchen table. I will be cooking today and doing some planting and gardening as this was always the weekend I put the garden in up North. Tomorrow I will have the food ready and will have picked out a new handwork project by then and will plop myself down to watch "marathons" on INSP of all my favorite shows...Wind At My Back and The Walton's and Little House on the Priaire. It's very hot here so you can really only go out early or late to work outside as there are heat warnings so it's actually a good day to stay inside in the ac. These marathons are 4 hours straight of each show. I'm not sure I can sit still for that long but regardless, I never do that, so it will be a special treat for me to just sit and do needlework and/or crochet and watch my favorite shows. What are your plans for Memorial Day?
