OK~ Another holiday weekend is upon us and you know what? We don't have any specific plans and I am ok with that. I hear so many people talking about being stressed out about being here and being there, and I'm just going to pray for nice weather so we can be outdoors at home here.
It's wonderful that Spring has finally officially sprung here in Iowa. The farmers are still planting corn and soybeans, as it's taken time for the fields to dry out. I kind of wonder if late May planting is going to be our new normal here in Iowa. Each Spring we can't wait for the leaves to turn green and the buds to come out on the trees. When they do, we are all just ecstatic! Our apple trees look to be good this year!
I always take our blue skies and clean air for granted, and I know I shouldn't. There's something to be said about that fresh air that we have to breathe in Iowa.
So, for now, I am gearing up for a quiet weekend at home. According to reports I have seen, it appears that a lot of folks are traveling this week-end. Many folks traveling more than 50 miles from home. So, my friends that are traveling- be safe and have fun! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
