Not so much the Memorial days of my youth were living in a larger city meant big parades honoring our veterans......but more a relaxing weekend to get the yard in order, the garden chairs out and a chance to sit back and think about the summer that is ahead of us.
One of my favorite things to do this time of year when the day is finished, is to sit out in the yard with my project basket. A little knitting, a little reading and perhaps a cold beverage to end the day.
I let the dogs out to putter around in their yard, chewing on what grass they can along the outside of their yards and we all quietly listen to the peepers and the rhythmic honking of the Canadian Geese that make their summer home in the pond across the street...........It's these evenings that I love the best!
As you can see, all 4 of the babies have hatched and have made their parents lives a bit busier. It is so darn cute to peek in and see their little mouths just hoping for Mum or Dad to plop something in it...LOL
Check back in a few days for a baby of a different sort and most of all, enjoy your holiday weekend! If you think of it, as you should on this holiday...say a prayer for our guys and girls overseas who are defending our country.
