We had some unvited guests in our pond Tuesday:
Since they didn’t have an invitation, Bella kindly asked them to go away. Which of course didn’t impress them much. So I had to help her to get them out of the pond. They did but just moved to the neighbours pond. A few minutes later they were back but this time Bella didn’t take no for an answer and did get them out of the pond by herself.
Wednesday was my Mom’s birthday. She turned 70. We went to celebrate it on Wednesday evening. Most of the people already had visited her because most of them are retired. It was just us, my sister and her husband and my mother’s brother and his wife.
Today it’s Memorial Day. We remember the casualties of the Second World War and of those who died while being on peace missions. Our flag is flying at half-mast. At 8 pm we are quiet for 2 minutes to remember those who fought for our freedom.
And tomorrow we celebrate our freedom. Then the flag is full in top, there are freedom concerts all over the country and some cities have fireworks.
We are not going to the celebrations because R. is away all day. He has his first motor race of the season. And tomorrow night we celebrate his best friend’s birthday who turns 50 on Sunday. It’s a garden party and unfortunately it’s going to be chilly tomorrow. But that doesn’t mean we won’t have fun.
I made some progress on the sweater. I’m going to finish the back of this sweater first before I continue at the vest. Although I’m not quite sure yet if I am going to finish that one. It looks really small and I think it’s a waiste of time if I finish it and it won’t fit. And I’m too lazy to start over again in a bigger size. I only bought the yarn I needed to start with and have no leftovers of the yellow color. I am going to think about it, haven’t made my mind up yet about the vest.
Have a great weekend!
