I woke up a lot later than I would have liked to; 7:00 am.
I really wanted to be up and moving at 4:00 am.
I have so many things to catch up on.
The Memorial weekend started on Thursday for us, and went through until Tuesday.
Thursday afternoon, we hauled the 'Tin Can" up the mountain for Spencer.
He stays in it all summer for his job.
full kitchen, bathroom, and laundry when he's there.. so this is just a place to rest his head and have some space of his own.
having a wagon to live in all summer.
Above is one of the neighboring farms. They had it all decked out for the Historic Home Show during Heritage Days.
whole town was ready.
Everything looked terrific.
The weather did not co-operate.
It was so cold, and windy and rainy.
Sure put a damper on everything.
We decided not to go to the Historic Home Show.
Because of the cold and rain.
We drove down to the post office to get the mail, and snapped a few pictures. I could tell that the rain kept folks inside.
In past years, the streets were shoulder to shoulder people. This year, a few brave souls faced the cold temperatures, wind and rain to go see some of the historic homes.
I'm hoping for better weather next year.
You win some, you lose some.
Then, yesterday.. the state road crews re-paved one of the roads by our house.
They were quick! They worked on the road for no more than an hour and it was done.
I saw some of Tennessee's old farm equipment out in front of his house, and had an immediate appreciation for modern technology and conveniences.
What a huge chore it would have been to smooth and fix a road with a wagon and team of horses.
I've got to get busy.. cleaning, and organizing.
~Bedding to wash and hang out.
~Refrigerator to scrub out.
~Vacuuming, and dusting.
~Mopping floors, and menu planning, etc.. etc.. etc..
Busy, busy , today.
Hope that you all had a wonderful weekend and that the week is a good one.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm so grateful that Spencer took his bagpipes to the cemeteries and played 'Amazing Grace' at my father's grave and at my father in law's grave.
It was very emotional, and quite beautiful. His grandpa's would have been so incredibly proud.
