Happy Memorial Day ~ Hubbies Find ~ Thanks Secret Sister

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Memorial Day actually means a few things in my heart.First off is a appreciation for the brave men and women who fight for our freedom today and since the birth of our nation.A sadness for the lives lost and the families who lost someone close..A sense of pride and Americana spirit..The kick off to summer weekend welcome barefeet and flip flops!

Thank you for the brave who protect or freedom even when all isn't always right they protect and serve you and me...

Well I've come down with a cold and it has me run down a little so my heart hasn't been in the hunt for treasures the last two days.I've went but it was more whatever I happen upon is fine..no drive for it...I did pick up a few things but nothing grand since thursday...Hubbies drive was still good he bought a unusual old egg washer and basket,a steamer trunk and some other goodies for fleamarket but this was his "FIND" for the weekend....Hand carved old oxen yoke even has the original wood pegs to hold the yokes...It's huge...

Finally just wanted to say thank you to my sweet secret sister..This month theme was summer picnic..We do this monthly till December then find out who it is.I got so lucky with mine she is so thoughtful and sweet...Goodies she sent...

Well hope everyone has a great weekend.I'm making pulled pork today and taking it easy.Tomorrow Fleamarket then to Heidi's for a cook out (her first time hostessing..smile..).Sometime this weekend I need to get my plot planted at grandma's farmhouse with all the rain it's either been to muddy or like cement but I need to get it in before my plants die..Warm Blessings!~Amy

Morning Amy, Sorry you are feeling under the weather. Sucks to have a cold in the Spring time. Always seems to be worse to me. Love the old yoke your hubby found. Staying in this weekend. Didn't go junk hunting. We're having quiet time at home until Monday then Holly and family will come for a cookout. Enjoy your weekend and stay safe.

Fantastic pictures~
Perhaps a cup of green tea for the cold? I swear by it. It was recommended to me by a friend of mine from Khanawake, the native reserve.
Happy Memorial weekend to you and your family- Hugs

Oh no, a cold in the summer. It can really zap your energy. Try hot tea and lemon. That's seems to work for me. I love your swap items. Your partner really loaded you up. That should have made you feel better for a little while.
Have a nice holiday weekend.
Country at heart
