Holiday Wish




Hello!!!

Remembering those who served and those
who continu to serve. Thank you to those
who are keeping us safe.

As we remember the true meaning of this 
holiday, I am sure everyone is finding time
to get things done around home and spend 
quality time with family and friends.

My first few days of summer vacation
were filled with watching it rain cats and
dogs and A LOT of them. The weekend
has been dry and we have gotten some
projects accomplished with more to do.
More rain may come tomorrow so
we may be in the house working, which
will be good too.

How is your holiday weekend going?
Big plans??

Wednesday Write Up




Hello friends! 
Here is is already Wednesday. Whew!

This is what is going on here:
I am two days OUT OF SCHOOL and 
I am so excited! It wasn't a bad year
but it was so full of drama and I am 
glad to be away for awhile. Things 
will be so different next year---
should be interesting.

Before we left, we had the annual 
party for those retiring or moving on 
to new adventures.
For our retiree, I made this "candy cup" . 
The cup had words on it that fit her 
retiring. She loves chocolate too. It was 
a fun little gift among the many she 
received.





Our niece's graduation party was last 
Saturday and for part of her gift I made 
this jar. We put filler in it to match her 
college colors and then we put rolled up 
dollar bills in it. She can use it for laundry, 
snacks, emergency cash etc.





I put a cute label on the front. When it 
is empty she can refill it with loose
change or she can use ot for something 
else.




We put it in a bag that matches her 
high school colors.

Today I finished unloading all my
school stuff, sorted through it and 
put away what I need for next 
year and tossed what I didn't need
anymore. I can see the dining room 
table again!!

Trivia Tuesday




Hello!

Today we are bringing back
"Trivia Tuesday." Many readers
have enjoyed these posts.

Our topic is...can you guess??
If you said Summer, YOU are 
correct!!

Summer begins on June 20th,
5:34 p.m. CDT. Check your
time zone for the time Summer

begins in your neck of the
woods.

The Summer season lasts for
93 days,15 hours and 47
minutes.




So that would mean we have:

33 days
20 hours
11 minutes
20 some seconds
until Summer arrives!

This is My Life




Happy Sunday, hope it is treating 
you well!

Today we are going to have a little 
"Throwback" to what is happening
here.
Back in early April, I hit my 1,000th
post! Very proud of this! When I 
began this blogging journey I had no 
idea that I would get that far!




April also brought the A-Z Blog 
Challenge, a challenge I completed. 
My topic was Education. If you missed 
it, click on my sidebar.




Baseball began is April also. We 
have spent a lot of time cheering 
the Boys in Blue-win or lose.




So happy so see the rose bush bloom.
I trimmed it and am always concerned
that I will wreck it and it won't bloom
in the Spring.








And yes, THE DREADED FACEBOOK 
has taken up some of my time (a lot).

Some other things going on---

*Flooded family room twice
thankfully minor each time.
Plumber came out to mess with our 
tree roots and the neighbor helped 
clean our gutters so hopefully now 
we can put the room back in order 
and not have any more problems.

*Drove 5 hrs to Oklahoma for our
niece's wedding to turn around the
next morning and drive home because 
we both got sick. Missed the wedding :(

*There are 5 1/2 days left of school! 
We have three ALL day events this
week too. Summer vacay is on the 
way and I CANNOT wait!! 

*Another niece will graduate from 
high school so we have a party to 
attend next Saturday and her grad-
uation will be the Sunday of  
Memorial Day weekend.

*Mr. Ken will be home that weekend
too --three day holiday weekend with 
him.

The following weekend we have a much
anticipated wedding of our friend's 
daughter.
Not only will she be getting a husband 
but two boys also! We are so excited 
for her and her family.

Somewhere in all of this we will help Mr. 
Ken's brother and fiance move to there
new house and then eventually we will 
have their wedding in September to 
enjoy.

Whew---NO WONDER WE ARE 
WORN OUT!!!

MIA




Hello Everyone!

Please pardon the absence of 
this blogger. I hope someone 
is still out there!!
May has flown by, this week was
full and next week will be fuller 
and believe it or not I have 6 1/2 
days left of the school year!! As 
the saying goes "Time flies when 
you are having fun!"

Today I have a question-- Have 
you ever agreed to a project, 
activity, obligation or commitment 
and regretted that you said "YES?"
If so, did you stick it out until com-
pletion or did you find a way out of
what you agreed to do?

Today I finished an obligation that
I agreed to back at the first of the 
year! I will not lie, I am SO glad this 
obligation is finished. I agreed to 
help a friend, but all I did was dread 
Monday's and Thursday's from the 
time I said yes.

I must say though that I am proud 
that I stuck it out and finished the 
obligation with out trying to come 
up with a way to get out of it!!

Hope everyone is doing well, I hope 
to get my act together and post more, 
especially with school being out soon.

W, X,Y and Z





W stands for:

Wonderfully

X stands for:

Exciting

Y stands for:

Year

Z stands for:

Zip A Dee Doo Da

Every year is different and our 
kids grow and develop and our 
year is almost over. The kids will 
have the summer to do more 
growing and maturing, and when
the school year begins again in 
August we will have new kids plus 
our "old kids", they will be older, 
wiser and off we will go.

Time marches on.

***Due to continued clean up for 
a minor flood in our basement, 
I am finishing the challenge early. 
Saturday is technically the last day.
I hope you have enjoyed my posts 
for this challenge. We will resume 
regular programming next week.
