I love Memorial Day weekend. Everyone's yards looks so nice all at the same time. People seem to be in an extra good mood - extra friendly - as they're finally enjoying some much needed rest & relaxation. I love all the red, white & blue flags that pop up all over neighborhoods & towns. And I love that Memorial Day is a time to reflect & shift our focus from all the blessings we enjoy here in America to the sacrifice that others have made in order that we might enjoy them. Today is as close to perfect as it gets here. The sun is shining but it's breezy so it's not too hot or too humid & the mosquitoes aren't out yet :) Flowers are blooming all over the place. We here in New England are SO ready for summer vacation by this time!
Memorial Day weekend is the kind of the unofficial summer kick-off and this just may be Playmaker's (16yrs) last summer to be footloose and fancy free & not needing to work or be tied down w/ other responsibilities. I think she senses that too & perhaps that's what prompted her to make the following summer "To Do List". Her original was handwritten w/ little cartoon illustrations :) - I'm just publishing it here "for the record" w/ her permission & I can't help but wonder how many things she'll have crossed off three months from now. Time will tell.
