Happy Sunday! Happy last Sunday of May!
Happy Memorial Day to all of my U.S. readers this weekend. Saying that, I really see it as a somber day, not a day for celebrations, as it has become. Today is a special day set aside to remember all our fallen men & women who have died for our freedoms. It doesn't matter your country - we all have these precious people (and their families). They should be remembered and honored as the heroes they all are.
You can like or dislike what is going on in the world - but always think of the fallen with reverence.
I can hardly believe it is already the end of May. I still don't have all the garden in. Last Sunday I mentioned how we went from March to July in a week - well this week we went from July to March in 2 days!! It has gotten down in the low 40's the last couple nights! We also had rain and super windy conditions. Holy cow! Crazy stuff.
I am finishing up the garden today!! We had a day or two that close to 90* - then boom! AC and heat both got used this week!!
Went from tank tops and barefoot to sweatshirts and socks again - GEESH!
I saw my first hummingbird of the season yesterday! It was actually just sitting on the fence last evening. I bet it was wondering why the heck it came back.
The air smelled so good this week - clover is every where and the air has just been sweet beyond sweet.
Today is the 500 Mile Race here in my city - and it has seemed kind of neat and old fashioned this AM. I can't begin to tell you how many times this morning already, I have seen bi-planes flying over the house with advertising banners being pulled behind them! It just made me giggle - as it reminds me of the days gone by. I am not sure if they plan the air force fly over or not this year - I always get a flutter in my heart seeing them. They fly right over my house when leaving.
It is a sunny day, the wind of the past couple days has died down, and temps should be lovely - so praying they have a safe race.
- I freshened up the bark in 2 longer beds - with stuff I had in the garage left from last year
- Ran to my brothers and picked up my tiller while out
- I did stop and get a few plants for the garden
- I got gas with a .30/gal. discount - it was so nice to be able to easily fill my tank AGAIN after the fix
- Got the garden all tilled - tilled in 2 - 5 gal. buckets of ash my neighbor saved for me
- Made up 10 pots of flowers so far - have a few more to do today
- Got rid of some broken and split containers - but reused the dirt in others.
- As stated earlier this week - got the Blazer fixed. Cost $35 - saved over $500 if I had gone to the shop
- Laundry, cleaning, scratch cooking
- Mowed and trimmed the entire yard (on a dry and warm day)
- Picked several more bouquets
- Cut my hair
- Salvaged another 'store' jar to use for my soup mixes this holiday season
- Paid all the bills I had on hand
Meals this past week:
Leftover broc./cheese/chicken rice and salad
Summer sausage, cheese, Triscuits & fruit smoothie
Tuna salad sandwich and chips
Burrito made from leftover bean/beef mix & fresh veggies
Pasta & veggie salad (heavy on veggies)
Loaded cheese burger and baked beans & chips
How was your week? Did you get much done? Stay frugal? Deals?
I hope and pray you are are healthy and safe. If you do get to be with family this weekend, please stay safe but enjoy your time together.
Blessings from my humble little home to you and yours.
Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Amen - and to lay down your life for strangers - what a humbling act. God bless all that have sacrificed all and bless their families. We are eternally grateful and humbled.
