How are you? Excellent one last week, hope this one is as well. Regal suggested including Memorial Day in the topics. Great idea and will be the theme for this week. A little different this year like everything else but we go forward.
Of course staring out with what's for supper? Chicken some which a way or pizza is where I am at right now. How bout you? Plans for the weekend?
It's a weekend a lot of people cook out. What are your favorite cook out item?
What has been your favorite vacation?
And because it's not all about hotdogs and days off something I learned in reading about this this week and wanted to pass along.
Coins on a grave-
Penny means someone stopped to pay respects
Nickel means someone was in boot camp with them
Dime means they served together
Quarter means they where there when the service member lost their life
I look forward to this thread every week. I am doing alright this week. Last night I visited my horses where there were many people at the barn, and I felt a lot like an outsider. This is the first time I have been at a 'larger' boarding barn (more than 10 other boarders) and I just feel like I don't know anyone yet. I also took Toofine down the road riding, and when I got back, many looked at me funny and the BO's daughter asked what I was doing (she is young, btw). I felt a little weird, but I'm sure that will pass. Most of the other boarders show on stock breed circuits, so my half-Arab and Morgan stick out a little bit, with our dressage and jumping tack. Oh well.
I have no idea what is for dinner tonight. My SO and I will likely order pizza as we did last weekend. We tried a Cubano pizza last time, and woo, that was tasty. I'm eyeing the Chicken Mediterranean pizza - grilled chicken, hot pepper rings, feta cheese, olive oil, and Italian seasoning - mmm.
One of my favorite grill foods my Mom made for me as a child was BBQ chicken on the grill. Grill/sear the chicken, wrap it in foil with BBQ sauce, and wait for it to be ready. Corn on the cob, garlic noodles, and salad on the side. I haven't had that in years.
Grocery shopping is on the to-dos this weekend, as is picking up two new masks to wear while shopping. Our local pet store has been selling locally made masks, and I picked out a bumblebee pattern and a chickadee pattern. I'm pretty excited for those.
As for the holiday, I haven't really done much the past four years as I have always been away for at my college town. Before I went to college, every Memorial day my Dad and I would drive to a cemetery where many of my ancestors are buried and clean off the gravestones, and then have lunch with my Great Grandma, Great Aunt and Uncle, cousins, Aunt and Uncle, and Grandparents. This year I know my Dad is planning on driving to clean the gravestones, but I'm not sure what the elders are doing, I can only hope they are taking precautions. I may join my Dad, still figuring that out.
I hope everyone is doing well this week, and spends this holiday weekend taking care of themselves.
