    Going into a holiday weekend, we usually talk about how we will manage to stay on track surrounded by food, family, and friends. But fit many, holidays are very different. I’ve had many holidays over 69 years that have been full of family. But I’ve had several that were just the 2 of us, and more than I care to remember that I was alone.

    Since the conversation usually centers on the busy holidays, those who have much quieter ones often feel left out of the conversation and thus, even more isolated.

    Memorial Day is typically thought of as the start of summer in the States, so how do you plan to kick it off this weekend, with or without cookouts and gatherings?

    Hubby insists on giving me a break from cooking on weekends so I am going to be extra careful bout wat take out I get. No hoy chips or too fatty foods. Xo

    I married into a tradition called “Fam Jam” that takes place each year the Sunday before Memorial Day. It coincides with the celebration of the hostess’ wedding anniversary and other family members’ birthdays.

    But I work on Sunday mornings and on Monday—me my four, no more—we just relax.

    Our holiday long weekend in the UK is next weekend, when the nation is celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth on 2nd July. There are special events happening in every city, town and village.

    Our city is having a special 2 day maritime festival on 3rd and 4th July, so we will probably spend some of the weekend on our little boat in the marina. We may even take it out for a little jaunt, weather permitting.

    Memorial Day. Kicking it off with a day off so 4 day weekend. No big plans. I have kind of gotten really relaxed about life and ‘plans’ these days. I also think Covid is starting to spike up here again so no large gatherings is probably for the best.

    I tracked logged, my exercise today included finishing laying the patio with recycled tires that look like patio blocks. Rowing still trying to get that 12 minute mile but I am satisfied.

    Our Memorial holiday begins with opening the pool weather permitting. Sometimes a small family bbq but I am hoping for a relaxing holiday as I started mine a day early also.

    No big plans for the weekend. Have a few graduation party invites but probably won’t go. I don’t want to take a chance of getting sick. Sunday I will be heading out of town to put flowers on gravesites.

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes, Pahla B 25 minute cardio. It was a new one today and was a lot of fun.
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? No. Ate a few extra things I didn’t record (bag of M & M’s)
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? No

    I am way over on my pass days for the month but I have posted everyday.

    All. Day. Gardening. Hauling bags of soil and soil amendments, moving pots, building the final of the planters, digging, planting, watering. I am absolutely shattered with exhaustion. But it is all in the ground now. It rained most of the day today so that made it interesting. 🌧🌧🌧

    Tracked it all and heading to sleep. We go fishing tomorrow! 🎣🐠🐟

    Unfortunately, I have been exposed to Covid. So, plans that we had or would've had have fallen through. Hopefully, I will not get sick, but I am not visiting my Mom or my Grandbaby as I was planning -- just in case.

    @SummerSkier you are not alone in higher Covid numbers more folks beginning to wear masks again this time without being told! Our numbers are up yet again. I don’t know about you but I always have one just in case. Enjoy your relaxing weekend
