Happy Veterans' Day
It's a cloudy, damp Veterans' Day this year, but parade day (Saturday) ended up being a really nice day - windy, but nice for November! Every year our American Heritage Girls troop marches in the Veterans' Day parade in West Richland and until now I've just watched. This year as a leader, I volunteered to park at the end of the parade and have hot cocoa ready for the girls. They all enjoyed the treat and it gave us a nice meeting place for parents to pick up their girls.
Later in the day Kirsten had a birthday party to attend so after I dropped her off, I spent some time at Home Depot buying new overhead lights for my kitchen. While walking around dreaming, I met my good friend Joyce, whose daughter was also at the party, and we decided to go to a nearby coffeeshop until it was time to pick up the girls. An unexpected treat!
Sunday afternoon I decided to lace up Acorns and Threads and get it in a frame. Now it's ready to enjoy.
All in all it was a very pleasant weekend.
