The Traveling Tote Adventures ~ number seven
Miss Courtney Childsa beautiful helper
If you are new to The Traveling Tote Adventures, you can go here and meet Miss Courtney Childs and friends and read how this adventure began.
It has been a busy Spring. Miss Courtney Childs and I have already made yet another trip to our favorite beach destination (more on the beach trip later.)
Last week we were busy preparing for the Memorial Day weekend.
Honoring all those who have served and those who are serving this great country. Thanks Dad! God Bless America.
Bringing home patriotic necessities

Every year I am in eager anticipation of Spring and working with my husband in our garden. I look forward to spending a lot of time at my favorite nursery and the big chain stores which always have a fabulous selection of flowers and plants, choosing just the right flowers to add to the beds.
After a little traveling to spend time with family in early spring and helping my MIL get settled in a retirement home we found ourselves a little late with gardening. Wanting to get a few things planted fast for Memorial Day I brought Miss Courtney Childs with me to the nursery and then to Lowe's to help me with all the plants I planned to buy.
Finding a lot of;
After several trips to the car we were ready to go home and start planting
I made one more stop, the farmers market but didn't find any flowers. We did enjoy a stroll down by the river.
Ours was a quiet Memorial Day weekend and we enjoyed our favorite bbq ribs from Dreamland. No cooking for me this holiday.
We usually have a crowd and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen but this year I didn't even make desert. I picked up pretty cupcakes and decorated them with patriotic colors and placed them in a pretty red, white and blue quiche/pie dish.
I am finding I don't know how I got along without Miss Courtney Childs. She is a workhorse of a bag and you can just keep filling her with more. I want to thank Patti for a sweet and thoughtful gift of a MacKenzie-Childs liner, it helps keep Miss Courtney clean and free of trash.
I am already thinking about the next Traveling Tote Tales and what Miss Courtney and I will do. Oh the places we will go! Please plan on joining us September 1, 2016.
I hope you will also visit my traveling gal pals to see what they've been up to. Find their links below:
