Memorial Weekend

We spent Sunday relaxing. It was a wonderfully lazy day. I love wonderfully lazy days. I need wonderfully lazy days.

We grilled these kabobs for dinner. This is the before picture, and I forgot to snap an after....but they were good.

They're chicken, green pepper, potato, onion and tomato. I boiled the potatoes for a few minutes prior to grilling...so they would fully cook. I also boiled the chicken so that it was just barely pink in the center. (I'm always so paranoid about food cooties. If it's mostly cooked before grilling, I don't have to completely char the chicken to be certain that it's no longer poisonous. It stayed juicy and was just barely charred. Perfection!)

We're planning on taking in a parade in the morning. I'm going to skip the eye makeup and wear big sunglasses. There is just something SO moving about seeing all the veterans....the color guard....my water works don't have a shut off valve. What an honor to stand as they walk past.

I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

We are so fortunate.

Memories of past parades make my heart smile today...oh how you all marched : )

God has blessed us well and my heart feels humbled and full too.
