Memorial Day Ideas

Screen-shot-2011-05-23-at-7_09_04-AMMemorial Day Ideas… could the holiday almost be  here?….I need to get busy…… I’ve been so involved with my little Yorkie “Elvis” and trying to get him over his allergies that it has literally taken up my days! He started two weeks ago, after his third visit to vet we finally got him started on prednisone and hopefully this will do the trick. So my poor little baby has been under the weather and wanting to be held all day…..Now that Daddy’s home, I can get some Mommy time! But first I have to let go of him…

memday11 …There is nothing quite like living in the country….especially during the summer….warm breezes with the smell of grass and a faint sweetness from the wild roses growing over the old fence. Winding roads that lead to places not yet discovered. Holidays are always better spent under an old Oak…..So pack up the picnic basket, gather the kids and find a country road, any road will do, especially one with old fences and horses galloping through the field….. Discover just how wonderful a day in the country can be….I am lucky enough to live here all the time and wake up to this everyday….

Country Hugs,
