Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!  Remembering those who died while fighting the fight and gave the ultimate sacrifice and thinking of the ones still fighting the fight and the veterans who have fought the fight so that we may still have our freedom. 

Until next time, keep on hooking.

Memorial Day

Gosh but it really has been a long time since I last posted.  It is now coming up on the Memorial Day weekend.  It's time for everyone to reflect on our fallen soldiers and how they gave their lives so that we can enjoy our freedom.  I also have a deep appreciation for our soldiers that are continuing the fight today.  I am so proud of them and very proud to be an American. 

So since I last posted Bethanie has gotten her braces off.

As far as my working life goes, I am now an Independent Sales Representative with Avon.  So far so good.  I like what I'm doing, it's fun and I have met a lot of new people, including my new neighbors.  So that's a plus.  But I am working on getting my Freelance Paralegal business up and running.  That's going to take more time as attorneys are hesitant to send their work out due to the confidentiality issues.  So we shall see...

We do have a new resident in our backyard. 

As the owl was sitting so calmly on the horseshoe spike, Louie was walking around him, not even barking.  Now that was surprising.  So now he has taken up residence in a palm tree in the next door neighbor's backyard, which is right next to the fence so we get to see him every night. 

He comes out and eyeballs a bird's nest in the tree next to his and the Mama and Daddy birds fly at him and scream at him.  As far as I can tell he hasn't bothered the nest but I really don't know as the birds don't seem to hang out in that tree anymore. 

I have seemed to have misplaced my crochet mojo but I'm working on getting it back.  It took me two and a half days just to do a simple dishcloth.  Now that's bad because it doesn't take nearly that long. 

Louie smiling his smile. 

Until next time, keep on hooking.
