Memorial Day 2018

On Memorial Day, I think about my grandfather.  He had 8 siblings, grew up on a farm and walked to school without shoes.  He fought in WW2 and had a near death experience.  If he hadn’t survived, I wouldn’t exist today.  He was always my hero, and not only because of what happened to him.  It was because he was my father, he taught me how to plant a garden, and taught me many more wonderful things.  My grandmother was good to me too.  I’d say the best thing about both of them was their down-to-earth sense of humor.

On Sunday, hubby and I did some yard work.  I found a baby turtle and admired my beautiful flowers.


On Monday, we went to Cape May for the day.  I picked up some New Jersey strawberries.  We walked on the nature trails, relaxed on the beach, played mini golf, and had a bite to eat at a cool beachy place.  I had an acai bowl and tried coconut water with pineapple.  I know a spot where pink raspberry flowers grow.  They are so pretty and smell like roses.  It was a bit chilly but we had a great time anyway!!!


“Don’t wish me happiness
I don’t expect to be happy all the time…
It’s gotten beyond that somehow.
Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor.
I will need them all.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh, “Gift From the Sea”

    Love the pic of you on the mower, I do our lawns, too – our JD is similar and must be close to 30 years old… ‘nothing runs like a Deere!’ 😉
