Happy Memorial Day

We had a few surprises on the start of our Corona Summer yesterday. Okay, Memorial Day is the unofficial official start. Are you dusting off your white pants and grilling brats from a safe distance today? A brat is short for bratwurst, a delicious sausage consumed in mass quantities here in Wisconsin, not a naughty kid.

We used to live with my cousin and her family in one big Italian house

The first surprise was lots of sunshine following all the rain.

I love her Memorial Day outfit

And the second was a COVID Visit (COVISIT) from my cousin, Rita. She was done with chemo for the time being and having a good day.

My mother and I road tripped from her living room to her balcony and had a lovely visit ❤️.


  1. Happy Memorial Day Jeanna! It is also a holiday here for us in the Philippines but we celebrate the Eid which is a celebration of our Muslim brothers and sisters here. I love the outfits of Rita and your Mom! They look very patriotic with the red, white, and blue! Our bosses are away since they live on the East Coast and on holiday but I have to work to finish some data work. Hope you are having a great start of the week and would love a Brat with bread and mustard!

  2. I love that tissue up the sleeve. Us old folks know we need that tissue.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. ♥

  3. So glad your cousin was feeling up for a COVISIT. And I love that term. I must borrow it! :) Happy Memorial Day!

  4. A nice family get together. My mom always had a tissue up her sleeve.

  5. Not a bad way to celebrate, not bad at all ! Did you see the pix of the traffic jams of people who did try a roadtrip? Stupid.

  6. Love the red-white-blue outfits!

  7. Thank you for this eventful day of yours! Well after rain the sun finally shines again.
    I wish you all a healthy time and take care of you.
    Greetings Elke

  8. LQQKS like you had a good time please give my best wishes to Rita

    LOL @ Brat tale and like the outfits too

    Nice pic of your mum and her tissue bless her heheh!

    Have a safetastic week Jeanna 😷😷😷

  9. I love to see your family dressed up for a holiday. It's hard not to be loved by a family, but must be hard to not be able to hang out with one you do have... your humor always helps me.

  10. Just being together on a day like this, is a treat, eh? Happy Memorial Day, Jeanna!

  11. Jeanna,
    happy Memorial Day!

    Your Mum looks lovely. Much love.

  12. That's just like my mother used to do, she always had a tissue up her sleeve. - Margy
