Memorial Day

Memorial Day is always a day of reflection for me. I remember as a teenager being in my parents small hometown in Oklahoma and going to the cemetery.  My pappy (grandfather) was part of the military group that would do a ceremony at the latest veterans grave then we would drive out about 45 minutes to the next cemetery and do it again.  One year we were all there and the ceremony was at my uncle's grave.  It was very touching.  I always remember that and then the funeral of Pappy several years later. Even as a young kid I learned the lesson that Freedom is not Free, it comes at a very high cost.

Busy time

It is the busiest time of the year at the office. But I did get a chance to take a picture of a new flower that is coming up outside our front door. Don't know when this got planted but all of a sudden it appeared.

Catching up!

 I have been so busy with work these days and I talk and email/text so much that I feel like I run out of words by the time I get home and so have no words to share. But today the phones weren't too busy so I have some words left.

I had an awesome time yesterday with my Mom for mother's day. We spent the day together not doing a whole lot but eating and talking. I got some great pictures from my parents back yard.

I haven't been knitting very much lately and I thought it was because I was too busy. But Mr80grit put that theory to bed when he took me to the store and had me try on Readers or cheaters as some of my friends call them. It was a surprise when I noticed I could see things a lot better close up! So I got a pair and have been using them occasionly. Then yesterday while at my mom's I couldn't see well enough to knit on the sock I had so we when out and got me several pairs of the glasses so I have no excuse now. It has even made reading my phone better. Who knew that now being able to see clearly up close could impact you that much? Guess I know better now!

Last night Mr80grit made gluten free lasagna.  He doesn't know how to make for a family of two. Nope he made enough for an army. 

It is a good thing I like lasagna.  We put several meals in the freezer for later.  Yummy.  Yes, he did use a turkey roasting pan to make it.  It took put the top shelf of our frig.
