long coupla weeks

We helped friends get ready for a home appraisal these last 2 weeks. I don't think I've ever been this tired. Apparently everything went well which is great. We went to a different friend's 40th birthday and I got sunburnt and sloshed and found out that my friends can sing really well.

Memorial Day

What a wonderful, long, busy, fun, thought-provoking weekend. Maybe especially thought provoking since my nephew is in the service on his way to someplace warm and scary. I'm very proud of him for being the kind of person to do what he believes in and to put himself into all he does but I do wish that meant he'd be home to do it.

All in all, it was the all American kick off to summer. We got work done, we got picnicking done and we got paraded and serviced out. I herded a snapping turtle off of the road. He was less than grateful but I didn't get bit. I found a great recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb pie on Recipezaar. http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Strawberry-Rhubarb-Pie-7553
