Traveling Again

The summer season of travel is here. Whohoo! First off is a short stint over the hill to see my mother. Then I am going to immerse myself in the beaches and culture of Hawaii. It has been many years since I went out there and I am looking forward to returning. This time, I will visit a different island and relaxation is my only objective. Maybe my goal should be to see all the islands but since I already trying to visit all of the National Parks, I think I will forego that one.
My granddaughter is done with swimming lessons and both she and her mother have wound up their school years. Celebration time!
When I return from vacation, I am going to start some serious landscaping/planning in the yard. A couple of ideas have come clear, and one very sad fact for the multitude of bunnies who are burrowing under the junipers that are about to be removed. Either the bunnies are going to hate me after their camouflage is removed from my yard, or the neighbors into whose lawns they migrate afterward are not going to like the influx of fluffy critters. Either way, change is-a-coming.
We have had serious rain of late. Having lived through a forest fire last summer, moisture is not such a bad thing – unless you are in the areas that got flooded or have crops devastated by hail. Feast or famine with the weather.
I’m posting this early because I want to unplug and not carry a computer with me. I will take my knitting instead – and maybe a book.
This being Memorial Day weekend, I wish to add my thanks to all the past and present military personnel who serve and have served our country. I salute you and I truly appreciate what you do. Thank you! Bless you. Come home safe.
