I was all prepared this morning to make it to the cemetery to clean headstones before Memorial Day and our daughters birthday.
You know how some times you get started on a project and something else comes up? Well, today was my day for that I guess.
I left the house fairly early to run by the bank and the post office before my cleaning project. When I got to the bank I noticed someone had set up an easel and was painting one of the buildings on the main street. I just had to go over and take a peek and of course that led to a long conversation. This man is one of the local artists in town. He says when he gets the urge to paint something he just sets up and gets to work. I will try to get one of his finished paintings to post here some time in the future. He would not let me take a picture of him painting.
While I was talking to him I noticed a Gallery had opened up on the main street as well. I just had to run in and take a peek. That lead to more conversations and just before I left there the man that let me do my book signing on my first book in his business establishment walked in and we talked a while. By this time it was getting close to lunch and I knew I had better get to the cemetery before it got any later so off I went with my pail, scrub brush and baking soda. (baking soda is very good in cleaning head stones).
I finally got it finished and then came home to vacuum, sweep,and mop plus a few loads of laundry.
How was your day?
