Memorial Day Weekend 🇺🇸 The Start of Summer…

Yes its finally here! Memorial weekend is always the weekend that kicks off the Summer Season! Camping, Hiking, Cookouts, Vacations, Boating, etc…!

Scout knows what summer means to her… Hot Dogs 🌭 at the marina 😊

But, we can never forget who and why we are celebrating! Memorial Day is not a day to thank soldiers or saliors for their service – Thats Veterans Day!

Memorial Day honors and mourns our brave men and women who gave their lives in service to our country! Its our duty to remember that all this happiness and freedom that we enjoy comes from the blood and sacrifice of soldiers who fought and died for all our freedoms! And its our duty to teach this to our children and grandchildren… Freedom isn’t Free!

“By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
   Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
   And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
   Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
   Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
   We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
   When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare
   To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
   The shaft we raise to them and thee”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Sunday Reflections… Happy Mother’s Day!

Today started early… Straiten up the house, spray off the porch and food prep for lunch… Not just any lunch mind you – Its Mothers Day! 💥

Four VIP Moms in my life! What would we do without Momma?

I’m gonna keep it short today, because lunch is coming quick! Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there! I hope you all have a very special day!

“There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas

Creation’s most unique and precious pearls

And heaven help us always to remember

That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.”

~ Glen Campbell & Steve Wariner

Happy Mother’s Day momma!

Sunday Reflections…

What a gorgeous morning! We started around 30 degrees with full Sun ☀️ and it has steadily warmed… It will be mid 60’s soon and it sure is nice 😊

I am so ready for flowers and garden plants again! It wont be long now 😊

We are gonna work in our yard a bit today, burn some leaves and maybe some steaks 🥩 on the grill as well! A little glimpse of Spring is pretty sweet on a Sunday! 🙏🏻

“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.”

~Henry Van Dyke


Enjoy your day!

Spring is Coming!

Thanks Pete! We all need a long weekend! 

By the way, I’m talking about Mr. – 👇🏻
“Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.”

Adventures in Cooking 🍳

Most people are at home right now. Some by choice, but many more by order or strong suggestion… So, there’s a LOT of really clean houses 🙂 and LOTS of shrubs have been trimmed and lawns raked and made ready for the season. And everyone has started fixing their own meals… Cooking is back in style!
I LOVE to cook! I do most of the cooking for our family, so its nothing new to me… Whats new is the availability of things to cook… Have you been to the grocery store lately?! It’s an adventure! People bundled up, gloves and masks, not making eye contact… And almost nothing you wanted! Forget the list! Its get what you can when you find it. 

What can I whip up for dinner with this? Hmmm!

OR maybe…

Tarantula Pâté anyone?

But seriously, you have to pretty much eat what’s in your fridge or cabinet. Being inventive can help put a meal together!

I came up with maybe my favorite omelet combo ever this morning! I used what I had in the fridge and it was honestly good!

I took pictures, like I do often 😊 Turns out this combo is AWESOME! Nashville Hot Chicken and Jalapeno Pimento Cheese! Boom 💥

The next week or two will give us all some time to have some “Adventures In Cooking”!

Check out some of my dishes on my Pinterest page –

Happy Independence Day!

The Declaration of Independence changed everything! It changed the world! No matter your politics, today is the day for Americans to celebrate and wave the flag! I still get choked up when we all stand and put our hands on our hearts and pledge the flag!

I’m proud of that “Ragged Old Flag”! How about you? #Godblessamerica!
