What did you do for Memorial Day?

We had a good weekend. All three of us had the whole weekend off and had a great time. We focused mainly on letting Luz practice her driving. She is getting quite good at it. Up until this week she has mainly driven in neighborhoods and to and from her work. This week we stepped it up a notch. Yesterday she drove through downtown East Peoria and to Walmart for her eye appointment. Then she drove us to a nice Chinese buffet for dinner. She did very well. Today she really got some practice. She drove almost 30 miles through heavy traffic to a mall on the other side of Peoria. We did some shopping for her. She got some really cute summer clothes, a pair of shorty shorts, :devil: and a tank top, :devil: :devil: , some shoes and a purse to match. She looks really good in the shorts and tank top! Then she drove on the interstate (first time she did that) all the way home. I think with a little more practice she will be ready for her test. She needs to work on her close in driving (parking lots, backing and getting into tight parking spots) and she needs to be a little more smooth with maintaining her speed on the highway.

After we got home we got the mustang out, put the top down and went for a 2 hour drive through the country. We had the stereo blasting away and had a great time in the beautiful sunshine. Right now I am teaching Luz how to carve leather. She did good for her first try. It isn't as easy as it looks she found out.

So that was our weekend. What did you all do?

Had a really enjoyable real Ukrainian dinner with another VJ couple who live nearby on Saturday, did a lot of work in the garden, bought a barbeque grill we had been looking at with our incentive cheque money, ran a lot of errands, then today drove down to High Falls State Park, set up our blanket and lounge chairs under a spreading Hickory tree overlooking the falls coming over the dam, enjoyed our picnic lunch and read for a few hours before driving home to a leisurely dinner including the first green beans harvested from our garden. A relaxing and enjoyable weekend all around.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Jon and I took a little road trip to Las Cruces (from Phoenix) to visit an old friend of mine. It was great fun. Las Cruces isn't the most thriving metropolis, but it's not without its charms and has a great brewpub with extremely potent IPA. Yesterday we went to White Sands, which was spectacular. I'll post a picture or two tomorrow. I think I'm still squinting!

For you road trip geeks: We took the scenic route back. Instead of taking I-10 straight to Phoenix, we got on 70 from Lordsburg (a weird little place in its own right), and took that all the way to 60, through Superior and Globe, then to Phoenix. I think it only added about 30 minutes to the trip.

It's nice to drive through some of the more remote parts of AZ. My brother lived down in the borderlands for the past eight years, so I used to go down to Sierra Vista/Bisbee/Tombstone pretty regularly. It's cool how you don't have to travel very far outside the big cities before the landscape is completely different, and you're in the middle of nowhere. I seem to remember that there is a place called Nowhere, AZ, on the way to Vegas, but it might not be a real town.

Ramble, ramble.

I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day!

My wife and I hosted our Memorial Day Family Get Together at our place. There was plenty of Filipino food, great music, and celebration. As always, we began the celebration by praying for all of the fallen solders from times passed and for all the brave men and women who make our way of life possible. In addition, we pray for our forefathers who died fighting for the social and economical equalities that we now enjoy. It was another very enjoyable day of freedom.

May God bless America!

My hubby left for a week on business so as soon as I waved him off, I ordered the hottest Indian curry, put a large bottle of wine in the fridge and watched chick flicks :D Then played WoW into the early hours :D
