I saw a statement recently this year is the first one that new high school students will not have been born when the 9/11 attack happened. As a post World War II baby, I remember how Pearl Harbor Day was so important to adults but I couldn’t really understand exactly why. Actually, intellectually I understood it, but I lacked the visceral understanding until the 9/11 attack. Now it is gaspingly, painfully clear.
I wish happiness and peace to all. As a veteran’s wife, I just want to take a moment to remind you that not everyone loves fireworks. Please be considerate of your neighbor. Have a safe and joyful celebration!
We live in a older manufactured home. Our “Master Suite” is pretty roomy and accommodates a king sized bed easily. The other bedroom, however is very small. When we bought our house the second bedroom barely accommodated a twin sized bed.
I decided that since all of our overnight company would be at least two people at a time the tiny bedroom was useless for company. I chose to rehome the twin bed and convert the room to my sewing and craft room. I bought a hide-a-bed couch with a queen sized bed in it for our living room. Our three comfy recliners can also be used for sleeping in a pinch.
Even without a bed in it the bedroom is still tiny and I am constantly looking for ways to store my precious sewing supplies. Well, today on my way to an exercise class I noticed a metal rack that had been set out for the recycling.
The zinnias in my garden are really putting on an exuberant show! The heat has finished off my tomatoes and green beans but I am loving the flowers that are taking over. What a treat from just a few seeds.
