Trunk-or-treat down...Halloween to go!
A lot can happen in two weeks.
I am out of time already today, and I know that tonight is going to be busy, so I thought I would share this sweet video I found. The sentiment, though directed at married couples, can carry to all those we love as we endeavor to make them feel special, needed and loved. What a blessing we can be to each other with if we make it a priority to serve one another. Now go do something nice for someone you love!
When the attack on the World Trade Center happened, September 11, 2001, a lot of people in this country found a way to show their support by displaying an American flag. They put them on their houses, their cars, lapel pins for their suits, clothing…you name it, anything and everything “flag” was popular. The flag companies were making and shipping them as fast as they could, working around the clock, trying to fill the demand. Overnight, the store shelves were empty where they had once been well stocked. People were scrambling to get one. But not at our house. The flag was already flying here when those planes flew into the Twin Towers. It was a daily event. Scott made sure of it and we have continued to show our support. When I went to bring the flag in last night, I noticed that the fading had progressed and become a small tear. We have been delaying the retiring of this flag. Scott had attached it to the pole a couple of months prior to his passing and we were having a hard time letting go. We would usually retire it long before it tears, as even flying it too faded isn’t proper etiquette and does not treat the flag with the respect it deserves. The ceremonial burning of the American flag comes with a great deal of attention to respect, and has some
At least so far! Nothing is seeming to go how I want, or need it to go. One good thing…no ants inside for days. I’m kind bummed. I know, right…what? Well, a friend brought over a new ant trap, which I observed working really well outside on Saturday, but I have been waiting to find a trail so that I can try it some more…inside. But I haven’t seen any for a few days now. I should be playing the “Glad Game”, but no…I’m complaining because I know that if they are gone for the winter, they will be back in the spring. While we have all been making a valiant attempt at cleaning, we are not decorated for Halloween. Maybe I should forget cleaning and leave the cobwebs up for a little while longer. Our biggest problem is that we still seem to be sorting for more garage sale stuff, and what I really need to do is just get it out of the house and into the garage for now. I want the mess gone and the fun projects to begin. Megan keeps coming home with great ideas to try, but that takes some serious time, which I haven’t had or wrangled from my almost completely overwhelming list of things to do. I keep reminding myself “baby steps” but I’m ready to make the “one giant leap for mankind” at this house
We thought we were prepared, but we weren't organized, so we weren't really prepared. This was a good trial run for next month's "The Great California Shake Out"! Be prepared!
I think I need to avoid watching and waiting for Mr. Fangs to have his lunch!
Life goes on, but it isn't always easy...that's just not part of the deal.
I love a walk on the beach...
Happy 4th of July!
