Last night was the last meeting for the year for my Cadette girl Scout troop. We had a backyard barbeque at our house and did a flag retirement ceremony as part of a patriotism badge. Unfortunately, the ragged flag we put to rest was nylon, so it was hard to be totally respectful and quiet when acrid, black smoke was blowing in our eyes - but overall it was nice.
Tearing the stripes away, one by one, with each colony acknowledged.
Last to go, the blue field. With a kiss and a salute. Goodbye.
Hit the library after spinning and picked up nine books I had holds on. Lovely! When I got home, I picked up the kids and went back to the library so they could get books out, too!
The older two went bowling with Daddy and our youngest and I are making sugar cookies - waiting for the dough to chill is the hardest part!
A bit of rain today, so no need to water the garden. Need to get the second planting of beans in, and perhaps may try to throw more peas in. personally, I do not think they are worth their space in the garden - they do not yield enough for our family in the space we have - I'd need to dedicate an entire bed to them. Maybe next year...
Overall, a good Tuesday!
