Of course, my 3 year old daughter has no working knowledge of the holiday and woke up extra early this morning.
The Evil Twin has a day off work and Buddy has no school, so I was looking forward to a day of sleeping in just a little bit.
I was rudley awoken, but fabulously molested, at some point in the middle of the night. And, Sissy has no regard for that fact or the fact that I stayed up too late
So, instead of sleeping in to honor our service members, past and present, I am up at the glorious hour of 7:15, which is only 45 minutes later than I normally sleep.
I think I'll try to snatch a hammock nap later on.

Before I go, I want to thank all of my glamorous readers for the wonderful comments on the gardening post. I received loads of really great advice! Even one piece of advice from an anonymous commenter about getting another pepper plant for cross-pollination, which was an excellent idea and duly noted - I now have 2 tomato plants, 2 pepper plants, 2 pansies and a hanging Hindu rope plant!
I also want to send a shout out to Leighmo for her great tips as well! Check her out. She may well have saved a few plants' lives with her advice! :-)
So, remember to thank your service members/veterans today. The Evil Twin is a former Air Force member, so I can just hug him all day. He never served war time, but he almost did. He was near the end of his 4 years of active duty when the first Gulf War started. He was given the option to re-enlist or separate. Since his
But, in the end, it means he moved back to the place I lived and we eventually met through a mutual friend. So, it's all good.
Have a great day!
