Summer is Just about Here...

Summer is just about here. Memorial Day weekend has always been special in our family. First off, my baby brother was born on the traditional day to celebrate Memorial Day--May 30th. Happy birthday little brother! Another thing that many of you in my age category may recall, on Memorial Day we could start wearing our white shoes again! For you younger folks, white shoes were taboo except for between Memorial Day and Labor Day. I don't know why, that's just the way it was. Memorial Day was the start of summer fun--school was almost out, the cold weather was gone and it was time to cut loose and have a bit of swimming. I'm going to take a break starting tomorrow for about a week and a half and visit some of my good friends from my younger days. Things have been happening at home that have me big time stressed but I won't bother all of you about them. Let's just say this jaunt is what the doctor orders. My crochet hook and yarn are packed and ready to go! Any of you have special plans for this weekend and your summer?

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a great summer


  1. Have a wonderful weekend Sharon Marie (and vacation). We are doing the traditional cook out at our place on the holiday with Sparklers and "Pop-its" for the kids (and kids at heart). Happy Memorial Day! :-)

  2. Thanks Heather. It sounds like you're going to have fun this weekend too. Reminds me of holidays when my sons were small.

  3. I remember the white shoe thing but I never paid it no mind LOL I hope you have a safe trip and things get better for you at home :o) Happy birthday to your brother and Happy Memorial day!
