Memorial Day Weekend

Today is my 17th wedding anniversary.  I find it an interesting fact that my parish priest was ordained on the same day.  We got married Memorial Day weekend because we were both in the military stationed near Washington, DC.  The long weekend made it possible for both families to travel and miss little, if any, work days.  It was beautiful that weekend but getting hot, like it is now in Oklahoma (it's been around 90 the last few days). 

Unlike that weekend, I am now part of a Catholic War Veterans post.  This weekend is looking pretty busy.  We only have 28 members right now, and only about 10 are really active.  This weekend we are covering three gates at a local cemetary.  Flag "planting" is going on as I type.  The kids and I did not go to that this morning because two of them had a mysterious fever yesterday and I let them sleep in.  (They seem to be fine this morning).  I will be out there, in our post uniform, for three hours.  I may be out there tomorrow also, if they didn't find enough people to cover the gates.  Monday, I will be participating in two color guards.  Hopefully, the kids will be well for that.  My four year old loves flags. 

It promises to be a very busy weekend.  Hopefully, I will see my husband sometime during it.  If you're reading this, I hope you have a nice day today.  Happy Anniversary!

Check out this great beading Ebook I bought. I even talked my beading friends to getting one and they enjoy it also. I wanted to share it for every other bead lover out there to enjoy
