Over the long weekend, I tended to my garden, adding filler annuals. I put together my window boxes. And I got really annoyed at people who thanked everyone for their service to our country. Look, memorial day is a day we memorialize people. You only memorialize dead people. I don't make the language; I just follow its rules very carefully*. Memorial Day is for servicemembers who died in service to our country. That's who we're showing our appreciation for. Veterans' Day is for the ones who lived. That's in November. Kind of a sucky time of year to get your recognition but that's when WWI ended, so that's what you get. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
I also finished the anniversary piece.

I use the called-for DMC except I swapped the roof color and window color. Who wants dark grey windows? It made the house look abandoned. Although now that I look outside at my neighbor's houses, the windows do look pretty black. Oh well. Let's blame the weather.
*And if you were my facebook friend, you'd have to listen to me complain about the way people say vinaigrette.
