Memorial Day 2015

 Honoring all those who have served and still serve. 
I'm so happy we have religious freedom in this country. 
I think of all who died in the name of that war and all wars. 
Coming to know Virginia, while Al lives there, we are able to explore our history, and stand on the soil of the battlefields. 
She lives in Norfolk, where so many continue to serve, in the Navy. 
I''m delighted to be OFF this holiday from work. 
We are having a small barbecue, with friends, today. 

 I'm reading this father's story of his baby born with Down Syndrome.  He is a doctor, so that is an interesting perspective. 
 I finished a pair of Regia sale sock yarn mittens last night. 
Then, I frogged my cashmere mittens as the after though thumb is not to my liking.   
I'll be casting on another mitten pair this afternoon. 
I like the Regia stripes and the machine wash and dry factor. 

My centerpieces for the barbecue are berry jello with Swedish fish. 
Yes, I saw it on pinterest.  
They got a bit bloated over night....
I'd suggest you make it the day you serve it. 

Wish you the day off and family time as you honor the Memories of our heroes.

It is so good to take some time to truly appreciate those who have fought so much for what is precious in our country.

I like the fish bowl. Might have to try it.

Enjoy your visit with Al, your vacation spot, and your first Memorial Day unencumbered.

The jello with Swedish fish is such a cute addition to a barbeque! I must read Beautiful Eyes.

I have just finished The Spark, the story of Jacob Barnett who is autistic and a genius. Jake has done amazing things and continues to amaze everyone he comes in contact with. I think you would enjoy the book.

Your mittens just keep getting better and better!

Cute mittens. They look so little!

Hope you had a good time at the barbecue.

I also saw the jello fish idea, thanks for the suggestion of making them the day of. My grandsons would love that! Another great pair of mittens! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

"Bloated" fish! Very funny.
That book looks really interesting. I'll have to track down a copy.
