Before it gets to be June, which is coming up mighty quickly, I wanted to recap bits of our holiday weekend.
This weekend has been long in coming -- no holidays for us since New Year's! As you saw, we spent lovely time doing our Paris Brest dessert, but what I didn't show in that post some of our other fun at Barb and Mike's.
It was a gorgeous day and we walked Barb's labyrinth, where we saw a butterfly with a hurt wing and much more.
Then wine on the porch, enjoying the birds at the feeder, and the onto the events in my last post.
Sunday was flawless weather-wise, too -- a perfect day to see Rick's aunt and cousins at their cottage not far from home.
And we got to meet the newest addition to the family, too.
We even saw one of Harry Heron's cousins!
Sunday was the start of our rain. But before it came down we went to the cemetery to plant flowers for my parents, aunts and uncles. This is a tradition in my families as it is in many.
We walked around the cemetery for a bit, stopping at the graves of a friend and her mom who died a year ago, fairly close together. They were near my college roommate and high school friend. Then, after a picnic (interrupted by weather!), we went off to the cemetery where my great grandfather was buried.
That cemetery is the oldest in Lansing and holds great local history in its earth. But that's for another time.
Home again, to roasted chicken and veggies, Rick's bread and watching "Rosemary and Thyme" videos -- a favorite of mine, new to Rick. As the rain came down, we were just happy and relaxed -- and isn't that what counts?
