First, I would like to take a moment to show gratitude for those who have dedicated their lives to serve our county. It is because of their sacrifice that we set aside this day called Memorial Day.
For me, this weekend has been a bit of a mental vacation. When's the last time you had a sleepover? I traveled to stay two days with one of my grad classmates and her kiddos. It was such a wonderful time filled with chatting and laughing and doing our schoolwork and laughing and kids. Oh yeah, and eating!
Bright and early on Saturday morning, I heard a whisper from the door, "Miss Libby, are you awake yet?" That was the 5 year old boy child. Later that morning, after breakfast, the girl child was like, "Miss Libby, can you braid my hair?" So, I set forth to tackle the French braid, which I haven't done in such a long time on long, silkier textured hair. I passed the braid test, so the day started off well.
My grad friend totally helped me satisfy that need for culture by taking me to an Indian buffet restaurant for lunch on Saturday. Her kids and I literally inhaled everything on our plates.

Sunday and Monday we were anticipating company, but they canceled due to all the stormy weather we've been having so both days were stay-around-the-house days (after church of course). I purchased some new herb plants and a couple of pepper plants for myself and four tomato plants of four different varieties for my mom. She wants to try something new this year - growing a vegetable. I was thinking of doing a container garden on my deck, but my heart was calling for me to fix my cinderblock raised bed garden area that has been left alone for too long.
After being on the phone with Apple off and on all day Monday, I decided to start my garden clean up process while I waited for the iMovie Library to my external hard drive. (Believe it or not, my iMovie Library was almost 650 GB and I only had 14 GB of space remaining between iMovie's library and my regular files. Thankfully that is fixed now.) Anyhoo, I began removing the cinderblocks and becoming an all-around farm girl.
|This is only 1/4 (maybe) of the space. So much more to go.|
p.s. My orange day lilies are just starting to bloom. Yay!
Until next time,
