This Week’s Theme Is Summertime

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day in the United States – a holiday to commemorate all those in the Armed Forces who have given their lives in service of their country. Memorial Day also marks the unofficial start of Summertime!

  • How will you celebrate Memorial Day weekend?
  • What Summertime activities are you most looking forward to this season?

Thanks for sharing your ideas with us this Friendship Friday!

Have Fun!

Have fun connecting with one another – building friendships is what this community is all about!

    Everyone has great sounding summer plans! I have hopes of enjoying the state park right outside my door, and my new screened in porch. Love to sit out there and write! Working from home and the “summer office” is awesome!

      Diane, this sounds awesome – I have always dreamed of living in the environment it sounds like you call home!

      The one thing I am truly looking forward to this summer is a summer filled with music.
      I love concerts, and I am looking forward to enjoying weekends attendung to the free outdoor concerts at a nearby park! 🙂

    I’m not much of a theme writer unless it involves caviar or sleep but I wanted to stop by and show my support.

    Thanks for hosting! I shared some gifts I put together for Mother’s Day, but they would make great end of the year Teacher Gifts too!

  13. We’re going to be cooking my infamous ribs on the grill this weekend – other than that, we’re going to be relaxing, working out in the yard and enjoying the pending amazing weather we have coming! 🙂

    As for summertime activities – the thing I’m looking forward to most is our big move back to Seattle this summer! It’ll be so nice to not be 3000 miles away from my parents and siblings. 🙂

    Thank you for hosting this site. You might be interested in my husband’s continued fictional stories. He ends one today and in a few days will begin another. His stories are several chapters, so it is best to follow by e-mail. There is a box on his home page for following! 🙂
