Memorial Day is a Time to Remember, a time to reflect on those who have served in military service and lost their lives. It is also a time to remember those who have lost their loved ones. In my youth, Memorial Day festivities would always involve a visit to the cemetary to place or plant flowers at the graves of our loved ones.
I am sorry but I give up on commenting tonight; I am not successful. Hope Blogger gets this fixed.
Thanks to all of you for the Birthday Wishes. I am trlly blessed! I received a couple of early birthday presents yesterday. I went to bed last night smiling because we just found out that my son got a decent grade -- better than I hoped for-- in his Algebra II class; he had been struggling this past quarter and I was worried. Tomorrow is their last day of school and I am sooooo happy. Then, the Betty Crocker Facebook page linked to my Patriotic Groove Cookies yesterday. I received around 7,000 pageviews as a result of their link. Just goes to show you that "Betty" is still a very popular gal!
Today I set a Memorial Day table in my favorite colors of red, white, and blue; in fact I think red, white, and blue can be used all summer long; I plan to :).
Lots of RED going on here which gives the table lots of energy.
Week Number Four using the Red Pots :), but who is counting?
I love bandanas as napkins, how about you? They are inexpensive and soft to the touch.
Thanks for dropping by my Red Couch to view my Memorial Day Tablescape.
