Sunday Sunburn

Too much time out in the sun today. Got a bit toasty. And while I’m not as red as the bricks or boards in the windows, I’m a little warm. I sense a rough start to the week already. A little tired and sore but not going to let that stop me today. Can’t because I’m working alone tonight. Such is life.

Not the type of window treatments I would have chosen.

I am looking forward to the week ahead though. Its going to be packed but hopefully with things that are rewarding. And maybe I’ll pick up the cameras again and get busy. I’m missing the full moon tonight but that is unavoidable.

Its time to visit my parents again. Going to Arlington on Memorial Day weekend is a special time. The flags on the graves. The extra people paying their respects. Of course I could do with less tourist but that is also something that makes that weekend special. I’ll probably pay a visit first thing that morning when they open and beat the crowds and the President if he comes out of his cave. I actually have a problem with him stepping on those grounds. But that is a personal bias.

It’s a visit that is kind of upbeat. Same for the Christmas time visits with all the wreaths on the graves. I took them a shot of my grand daughter on my last visit. I so wish they could have had the pleasure of holding her.

I owe so much to my parents. I try to remember to be a better person each day because of them. I think one of the most important lessons my Mom taught me is something I do today as often as I can. I tell my children that I love them. I work hard to show them that there is effort and commitment behind those words.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I used to cut my yard with a push mower a few decades ago. I did it this weekend with a push mower. My yard size has grown significantly since those old days.

It is now grilling season. Everyone to the BBQ.

It’s vacation season and I can’t wait. Its my favorite benefit.

Some days I feel my age. I just don’t act like it.

Health is priceless.

Yesterday I missed posting. I think it was the first day I missed in 8 or 9 months. Time for a new streak.
