Ten on Tuesday | Memorial Day Weekend.

We celebrated Memorial Day yesterday, which means a long weekend - and an excellent opportunity for sharing ten things we did. My weekend actually started last Wednesday when Holly & I drove to Lake Oconee to spend six days with my family in one h-u-g-e house. First - a few of my favorite photos. 

And now, a sampling of what we did there:

1. Shared a bunch of photos on Instagram (check out #reynoldsmay2016).

2. Knitted a lot...sometimes with wine, sometimes with coffee, and sometimes in a big chair with friends.

3. Played with Charlie. He had great fun finding golf balls and sticks...and then putting them into his pockets.

4. Cheered on the puzzle mavens. I usually make a point of fitting in one piece...but this year I didn't even manage that. The entire 1,000 pieces were assembled by Saturday morning.

5. Cooked (and ate...and drank).

6. Played games. Rob and I won (Junior) Trivial Pursuit. I lost everything else (I think he did, too).

7. Read. (I got a great start on Summer Bingo...more to come!)

8. Walked. I saw a lot of the golf course and many beautiful homes ...and yesterday morning, finally saw the lake :-)

9. Took a family photo. 

10. Remembered all those who served and gave their lives so we could freely live ours. Driving home yesterday I passed so many flags...and it was nice to drive into our driveway and see a few more.

  1. Sounds awesome! Glad you got to spend some relaxing time with your family.

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday! That is a great family photo!

  3. Certainly looks like a great way to spend a holiday: good food; good wine; good cheer; good knitting and good times with family and that Charlie boy! And a way to be mindful and grateful for the reason why.

  4. Your weekend sounds marvelous. Great smiles in your family photo!

  5. Wonderful!! I love all your photos.

  6. You have such a sweet little companion in Holly. It sounds like a fabulous six days! And the smiles in your family photo are contagious - they brought a big smile to my face. : )

  7. Lovely collection of photos-I think I needed more people in mine!


Thanks for the feedback!
