Memorial Day

The boys and I went to the cemetery this afternoon. We walked around and read headstones for about half an hour. If they hadn't been there I probably could have let emotions have free rein and thought a lot longer about wars and US history. Instead I tried to impress on them the respectful nature of the day. They were at least able to parrot the correct information so I guess that's something.

I planted a geranium from Mother's Day and a green thing I bought with Mom. Feeling dumb that I don't know what it's called. I planted it under Brandon's window because it's supposed to like shade. Seth finished up the front grass and Brandon is mowing the back. He wasn't very happy about having to do it.

I'm feeling... comtemplative. I don't know why exactly... just a little quiet in my spirit. I've read two great books since my visit to the library. Wildflowers by Robin Jones Gunn and Sophie's Heart by Lori Wick. That could have something to do with my speculative mood... just thinking about the messages of the authors.

The Second Day

Ok, well I made it here today.

I have a hard time knowing what to write since anything online can be read by nearly anyone. My instinct is to pour my heart out and give a voice to my heart and private thoughts... but I'm not sure yet.

I burned my hand this morning on the steam from the water kettle. Didn't seem like it was a big deal until later and eventually it did hurt enough that I did put ice on it. And now I have a blister.

My sixth wedding anniversary is tomorrow. It's very strange to think about the last 6-7 years. Time does fly... Mike is working today so I indulged myself at the library. Only came home with 5 books, and I think I may have read at least 1 of them before, maybe 2. But oh well... keeps my brain busy.

Wow.. that's very pink

I don't think I've been surrounded by that much pink since I was 10 or 11. I'll try it for awhile and see if it grows on me.

The First

Well, I am finally jumping into the blogging universe. Wonder how many first entries start off the same way.

It's a lonely Friday at work, all the office mates in this vicinity are off and it's just me and radio. Oh, and a few birds outside the window. Hubby is working today and tomorow so the boys and I will be on our own for the weekend. Fortunately we'll have a little money for grocery treats to keep ourselves going.
