There was no sun at all today due to the ever present rains, so I think it was okay to skip the sunscreen. Plus, I was inside most of the day anyway.

I carried several towels from the dryer to the loveseat where I folded them, but I didn't have any towels out in public.

I didn't have cherries, but I had a very delicious snack. I went to the farmer's market this morning and there was a booth selling giant cinnamon buns slathered with icing. I couldn't resist one. I'm sure the calorie count was astronomical, but it sure was tasty!

It was hot today and I enjoyed indulging in whitehouse cherry ice cream.

We're definitely having ice cream weather. I'm not familiar with the Whitehouse brand of ice cream. It must be more regional.

Actually "whitehouse" is a flavor variety offered by many brands. It is basically vanilla ice cream with maraschino cherries (also called cherry vanilla). Look for it wherever you buy ice cream.

Oh, I thought that was just a brand. I don't remember ever seeing an ice cream variety with that name.

I bought mine from a local ice cream shop but am sure it is available elsewhere.

I'll have to take a closer look at the ice cream the next time I'm in the store.

"Happy Memorial Day" seems strange to say
with so many loved ones lost along the way
But happiness is not because they are gone, you see
We are happy knowing that is what they want us to be.

I like that poem. I have always thought it was strange or inappropriate to say "Happy" Memorial Day, but the poem gives me a different prospective.

Oh - you're talented! I assumed it was a poem that you found.
