Happy Memorial Day! Usually I hang my flag today, but my painter has the bracket down while he is painting, so I feel a bit unpatriotic!
My dad was a WWII Vet. He was shot while in France in December during a battle. I cna't even imagine what it would be like to lay in the snow in a battlefield wounded, waiting to be brought to the safety by your commerades. He came home from battle on the Queen Elizabeth and was sent to Gardenier General Hospital in Chicago to recover. Dad never talked much about the war. He wore its scars everyday of his life but never complained. Many others weren't so lucky.
Thank you to all the vets who fight or have fought for our freedom, and especially to those who gave the ultimate gift so that we may live free.
It is a chilly, rainy day in my part of Michigan. Didn't get the rest of the yardwork done, or my lawn mowed. Instead am in the house and thinking of building a fire in the fireplace to take the chill out! Got a mile in on the treadmill, but my fitbit steps are not where I would like to see them. Will have to get off my butt and get busy to see the number I would like before I go to bed!
Will be watching hockey later on, so I guess I should get off this computer and get back on that treadmill! Go Wings!
Back in the routine tomorrow. Hope the sunshine comes back because this gloomy, windy, rainy day makes me want to curl up on the couch with my blankie. Geez, enough of that. Signing off before I talk myself out of the treadmill!
Happy Memorial Day! Love you all.
