~ Happy Memorial Day ~

God Bless all the veterans and those currently serving in the military. We all owe them such a debt of thanks and I can't even imagine what it is like to be deployed in a war zone. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

It has been hard to find the time and inspiration to post. I am in awe of all of you who continue to do this regularly. I hope to get back on track because I miss my online friends! You all inspire and motivate me so much.

The rain is coming down here but hopefully we will see the sun again later today. We have been blessed with wonderful weather for the past few days and I spent a lot of it in the garden. We lost some plants to last year's drought and the yard is still recovering, so we welcome and appreciate rainy days like today!

Kiska is pretty much all grown up now. She doesn't look too pleased about being photographed but she is really a sweet and playful girl.
Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
