Memorial Day Plans

Anyone have plans for Memorial Day?

We have some graduations this weekend, my grandma's birthday party (89), yard work...and we'll grill out for Memorial Day.

My brother and his fiance are coming up for the weekend so we will see them at least one day. We are going to visit some other relatives in Marblehead, MA. I also hope to do some work in the garden.

Just having a BBQ Saturday if it doesn't rain. Some yard work, too. And maybe finally finishing up a baby quilt that I started 3 months ago. At this rate, the little girl will be off to college before I finally give it to her.

It's my 1st weekend off in two months
So to celebrate, I'm going to work around the house all weekend
So much to be done. Monday, I really want to have a cookout with the kids if they're not too busy. Probably ribeyes, chicken, tater salad, and corn on the cob.

We have some more shopping to do for our upcoming kitchen remodel.

SO is helping her sister plan a small wedding for the end of June.

Eating, drinking, gardening, eating drinking.

Maybe wash and wax the car if I'm feeling ambitious.

That's about it.

Oh, eating and drinking, too.

We've been out of town every weekend this month, so it will be nice to be home. I'm planning to make a wine-butt chicken with avocado-tomatillo relish and southwestern potato salad on Saturday; DH got some baby back ribs, so we will grill them Sunday or Monday, with the leftover potato salad, and green salad from the garden.

Speaking of which, we've been gone so much, parts of the garden are monstrous and really need some attention. We've taken care of the veggies and herbs, so they look good, but the flower gardens really need to be weeded and the containers need to be filled. That will be most of the weekend's activities.

I'm hoping the crappy May weather will break a bit and I can go for a bike ride sometime during the weekend..... other than that, I will be very busy working.
So yeah, just another weekend to me, although busier than usual.
Give us this day our daily bacon.
