Memorial Day my way

Being the great Mom & Grandma that I am, what do you think my family did for the three day Memorial Weekend? Picnic with a yummy homemade lunch? Boating with all kids on the lake? Sharing wonderful Family stories as we decorated the graves of the dearly passed on at the cemetery?
Nope...all my kids & grandbabies went with their in-laws & friends camping & four wheeeling in Idaho, while Hubby & I stayed home...and it was wonderful! I am such a bad woman!!!!(hehehe)
We spent the weekend marking things off the Eternal to-do list. Just a sampling: 1.Cleaned out flowers beds
2.New sprinkler system in front porch flowerbed
3.New lights installed in bedroom & studio
4.New doorknobs & locks on doors & garage
5.Lawns mowed & edged
I also sewed up 14 signature blocks for the QOV drive for the state of Utah. And lastly, I made a attempt to learn to knit. I found a couple books at the Library, found my Grandma's old needles, dug out the big yarn bag and practised away. My Grandmother H tried to teach me as a child...crocheting I caught onto immediately, but knitting was a disaster. Nearly 40 years later, I decided to try it on my own. My Hubby got a big laugh out of watching me...he thought the knitting needles were winning for a while.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
