This weekend started very early in the morning with a 2:15 alarm going off to rustle a child off for breakfast and then a trip to whale watch with his biology class. Company arrived and then a couple beautiful days of gardening, company and enjoying the weather. We enjoyed a nice dinner at our friends’ home with some great conversation.
The cousins and friends hanging around waiting for the start of the parade.
Our good friend, Tom French was the Grand Marshall of the parade. Tom received a Purple Heart for his military service.
We enjoyed the Memorial Day parade in town this morning, followed by more gardening.
It was inspiring to see a large part of the town and a lot of familiar faces all at the cemetery for the most important part of the whole day — remembering those who gave so much for all of us.
The day ended with a nice relaxing hour or so on our porch with a book, a breeze and my favorite guy.
Typing this as the sun sets. Despite my lack of a voice for most of the weekend, it was good. Feeling very satisfied.
