How was your Memorial Day weekend? I want to say thank you to all who served and my thoughts are with you if you were remembering someone yesterday.
Here is my weekend wrap-up…
Friday was the last work day for teachers and the Class of 2021 graduation. This is the day we pack up our rooms, finalize grades, stuff like that. I finished all of that Thursday in anticipation of not having as much time to do that with graduation. It was supposed to be at 9:00 but we pushed it back to 11:00. It was basically the same forecast for both times. It was rainy and ugly and the first year to have it on our football field. Normally we have it at an arena at our fairgrounds, but due to Covid all of our district’s graduations were held outside. I was a ticket taker and had to stand in the rain from 9:30-11:30. I wore my rainboots and a rain jacket so I was o.k. I loved having it at our school and it was so much more special in my opinion. (It was a bit hard for me personally since my kids didn’t get a graduation last May and I think we could have done it just like this last July.) They did have a Class of 2020 graduation later in the day Friday but my boys weren’t interested and I wasn’t going to push it. If I had really wanted them to do it I think they would’ve.
After the graduation ended around 12:30 we had box lunches, a speech by our principal, and a farewell to our retirees. We were giddy to be done with this crazy year!
After work, I just went home, had a cocktail, read a bit, sat on the patio with Tom later in the afternoon, and I was just so tired. I felt like I should be celebrating out somewhere, but it was still rainy. Tom suggested ordering pizza so that is what we did.
I am almost done with this; it is cute!
Saturday was so cold! I went to Target to do a couple of returns without a mask! It is so nice to have my glasses fog-free!
Later in the day Tom and I went in Kohl’s and we are seeing this sign in the windows of several businesses. Is it the same in your area?
Mason and I went to a little market.
Lots of color on Mason; most of these items are thrifted!
The market was really little so we walked to a couple of other locally owned shops.
Then, Jack and Mason weren’t interested so it was just Tom and I for Cruella. I wasn’t that excited but Tom wanted to see it. I loved it. It was really good!
I cooked Mexican for dinner and we watched a couple of shows with the four of us.
Sunday it was still a bit chilly but the skies were blue and the sun was out.
Tom and I went to Captain’s Quarters and ordered salad and a Greek pizza.
We headed home around dinner and I made sliders, corn, and potatoes.
Monday we went out again and it was warmer.
We passed a riverboat.
How about you? What was the highlight?
