Happy Memorial Day!


"History of Memorial Day!

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season."

Moving on...

We had a busy day and did not go out via boat today due to too much to do around here.
Hubby mowed and trimmed the lawn, laughable since there isn't that much there yet!
But its whiskers were raggedy due to its growth spurt, ha, sounds like a child, although we do not trim them, ha!
Well, eventually the rain will be more steady and fulfill our needs; meanwhile though our areas deficit of nearly nine inches of that wet stuff nature produces still remains at this time and leaves us sadly very needy! 

While Hubby worked outside I prepared our dinner for the crock pot, Gosh it is thirty years old, from our restaurant on the other coast! Used for soups and such. We had given one to each son, since we had two, and eventually bought a very tiny one for just us, although it proved to be too small.
Number One Son stored this in the shed that Hubby had built in our yard for just his stuff when he had his live aboard sail boat. We asked if we could borrow it back last time and so we had it now in the pantry space in our laundry room to keep it clean after we had to  really scrub it when it was first brought out of the shed.
And so today it was convenient to get out this morning.
I filled it with prepared by me veggies and then the defrosted tenderloin.
I started it at ten for dinner at five and set it on high.
We just had it and yum, everything was done to perfection!
With quite a bit of leftovers!

Great news our Number One Son has taken his birthday off, and called here earlier and I said we would come up there, but no he wants to come here to see our new boat!
So that is great and I went into the story of how he was born all those years ago that he knows by heart... how it started on a Monday night on the way home of taking his grandmother, Hubby's Mom, to the airport for her vacation flight to Europe, but he was born on a Wednesday morning, and sixteen days early, OY VEY, definitely worth the wait!
Everyone thought it was because of the cousins wedding that Sunday that I was really dancing quite a bit at, me nearly nine months pregnant, oops!
Someone even said I was going to dance that baby out; little did they know, or I knew, of course after I did, ha!
I still think I left enough out to make sure I don't embarrass my eldest...on here being careful with what you say on, "Social Media", since sometimes it comes back to bite you! Is what my adult sons subscribe to and are soooooooooo right! Be careful!
And that happens to make it just fine with me, thus my not talking about them too much, okay!
I do love them and respect their wishes.

Uh oh... where was I?

Yes, he is having another birthday, which is great!
The only thing is when he started getting a bit of gray in his hair a few years back and the fact that I don't have any that threw me! How did HE get soooo old? Where was I?
Although, that is only because the worth it hair coloring company, L'Oreal, visits me fairly regularly!
LOL!

Happy good night to all and to all share those blessings and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!

Be safe America!
