People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.

Well, the weekend has once again arrived and none to soon. I've been nursing an annoying spring cold and am looking forward to some much needed R & R.  It is a cooking weekend, but, it is also a three-day weekend so there will be some time to play catch up.  

Isn't it hard to believe?  Memorial Day already?  When I was a child, Memorial Day marked the end of school and beginning of summer vacation.   To many adults, it is a day to look for sales, but it is also more than that. It is also a day that we mourn our loss. It is the day we honor Americans who gave their lives in military service.  It is a day to remember those who died so that we may be free.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.  


  1. Enjoy your weekend Mary. Down here at the beach, it is the beginning of the weekend and the descent of the benny's. There are also many parades to honor those that have fallen and we will be attending one in the town we grew up in.

  2. I hope you get over your cold soon! Enjoy your long weekend!

  3. Hope your soon over your cold. Enjoy your time off. X.

  5. Hello Mary,
    I hope the cold you have will be freed from you soon, and the remaining of your weekend will be a magnificent one.
