Memorial Day

Brandi in cap and gown
Memorial Day - designated to honor the memory of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice serving their country; a day of flags, parades, and barbeques. I hope you are enjoying your day.

Thursday we attended the graduation of my youngest niece and godchild, Brandi. She received many honors, including graduating in the top ten of her class. When Brandi was about five and living in Colorado, I started a little kitty quilt for her. Now if you remember my history, you won't be surprised to learn that it is still in top form. Her party is a little less than a month away. My goal is to have it done and ready by then. I can do it. I can do it. I can do it....

We have a new ballpark in Midland, (just northwest of us) and a single A ball team, affiliated with the LA Dodgers. The field is called Dow Diamond and the team is the Great Lakes Loons. You can walk all around the
ballpark and behind center field there is a giant nest. It's a very family friendly place and a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. We went yesterday with my brother, Jim, sister-in-law, Lori and nephew, Eric. Today I have a bit of ballgame sunburn, just on the left side of my body.

There was an ad in the paper for perennials that I had to check out. Now I have more planting to do this afternoon. I brought home a red hibiscus, yellow primrose, purple sage, trumpet vine, giant black eyed Susan and a few others. Off to find my gloves.
