This Week...Losing Track of Time

 

Did you know that this coming Monday is Memorial Day? Three-day weekend?!  What else is new??

 

 

America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand. Harry S Truman

Well, yes, I know that Memorial Day falls at the end of May but honestly, with children out of school,  many businesses slowly opening up, and not everyone back to work, I totally lost track of time.

 

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope. Winston Churchill

 

 

NASCAR started up this week much to Larry’s delight! I’m sure there are others who were just as happy to have some kind of sport back even if no one could be in attendance.

Racing is one of those sports that doesn’t necessarily need spectators in attendance.  I loved seeing it because it’s a step towards getting back to where we need to be. It shows us that life does and will go forth. 

 

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. Ronald Reagan

Our temperatures are in the 90s and since this is Houston, it’s also very humid. If you enjoy being in a sauna, you have only to walk outside. 

 

That being said, not sure how much outdoor grilling will be done this weekend. 

 

Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice and is never the result of selfishness.    Napoleon Hill

 cypress

 

Whatever your plans are, please take the time to remember what this coming holiday is about.  Honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Kathy Streib - I lost track too but we must remember those who died for our freedom.  Hopefully we all do.

Kathy, it is very easy to not know what day it is!  Had a get-together with girlfriends on Monday evening, and swear it was Saturday.

Three day weekend? It's all weekend all the time here. LOL

Nothing holiday about it for us, except for the "remembering" part, of course.

I've taken stock of the number of holidays that have come and gone during California's lockdown.  (1) Easter (2) My Birthday (3) Mother's Day (4) Memorial Day.

Also, during this time, my grandson graduated college!  Still, the days seem to blend into each other!

Hi Kathy Streib - What a wonderful montage of images and quotes to go with them.  Our weather in Sedona has been super pleasant this week.  For the last 2 weeks we have had the windows and sliders open all day. One night it did get cold enough to close them.  Next week may be much warmer.  But today 78º.  Our main street has America flags lining it on both sides of the street.  Lots of venues are open.  Others have patio dining.  We never really felt shut-in. The entire time we were able to get out and walk, use parks, and hike.

I am finding it hard to remember what day it is. Everyone is working from home and the grandkids are not in school...it's a topsy turvey time. And yes, I also think it is time for everyone to get back to work as safely as possible!

The heat starts to roll in tomorrow and Tuesday thru Friday will be close to 100* None too happy about that but I will survive. Love the quotes and the pictures.

Kathy went to my great nieces birthday party today. Traffic was bad because a tree had fallen onto the highway. There have been a few rock slides in the area as well.  Finally, the rain has stopped and we had a warm and sunny day for this Memorial weekend.  As usual on Memorial weekend we saw a lot of motorcycles.

Hi Kathy,  So easy to lose track of time, especially with our current circumstances.   I really appreciate the Winston Churchill quote -  All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope. Winston Churchill

Morning Kathy.

I've devoted this weekend to those who served and still serving.  People who do not live in this country don't realize the freedoms we have, that only they dream about

Hi Kathy,
I was going to make a comment on the Harry Truman quote because it is so true, then I kept reading and realized EVERY quote is so timely.  We need to be diligent during this time in history. Our future as a free nation depends on it.

Wayne Martin I hope you open soon. We're expecting rain today so Larry will be watching golf and NASCAR.

Kathy I love Harry S. Truman's quote of "America was not built on fear".  I feel like many have forgotten that today!!!

Kathy Streib - I did know it was Memorial Day weekend; however, I have lost track of time too. It's as if the Day the Earth Stood Still came to fruition and it's so weird to be quarantine when you're not sick but living with the threat that you can get sick and not just a little sick either. 

Be safe and well and take care.
