Memorial Day is also for Making New Memories

Memorial weekend is generally served remembering those valiant men and women who served our country  defending the rights and privileges we enjoy today.  I celebrate those heroes and am very thankful for the sacrifices they made.  I have lived outside our borders and while I enjoyed temporarily other places there really is no place like home.   This year ‘s Memorial Weekend was spent creating new memories.

My brother and sister and I spent the weekend together.  Something we had not done in many years.  Celebrating who we are, who we were as children and whatever the future may bring.  We kept busy doing chores, cooking, yes all three in the kitchen at one time contributing our own special talents.  So much fun, and laughter.  It’s good to have family!

I had found an old water trough in the woods and we decided to use it for the base for our mailboxes.  We measured the posts for the mail boxes and put them in buckets of cement to harden.  Once hardened we drilled holes in the sides for drainage (yes the bottom was pretty rusty and holey) just to make sure.  We then filled half the trough with those packing peanuts and had a front loader bucket of dirt hauled in to fill to the top.  Next to town to buy flowers to plant in the dirt and hang our flag.  Voila, a welcoming entrance to the farm.    Yes, it took the three to us to complete this and wonderful memories created.

We then did the BBQ thing and ate on the front porch with ribs, deviled eggs, 7 layer salad and sweet potato casserole.  Yum Yum!

Hope your weekend was filled with new  wonderful memories as well.

Sorry no sewing completed that weekend.  Hopefully next weekend.  Working on a UFO  FINALLY!
