Memorial Day Weekend!

I realize as I feel my fatigue that I always find this an odd weekend.   I love the three days, but the celebration part as exhibited by sales shocks me.  It seems like a weekend to go within, to honor those we love who have died.....

I remember when I lived in Iowa as a child, and we went to Indiana and put flowers on family graves.   My uncle put flags on the graves of the veterans.  

Now, we live in California, and still I feel the need to use these days to go within.  I found myself pulling my Cold-Weather Cooking cookbook off the shelf and I am planning Curried Lentil Soup with Chutney Butter for dinner.    Of course, here, it is not so warm and it suits my mood....

Memorial Day weekend - three days to contemplate and reverence the wonderful ones who have died..

I'm not clear how shopping fits in with that.
