Memorial Day

We didn't celebrate Memorial Day in the conventional sense.

As of this morning we are finally in contract for the house and spent much of the day cleaning/purging.

My husband set off the smoke alarm when he lit some lavendar incense, thus making me realize I am not prepared for such an emergency. When I smelled the incense I thought it was burning plastic.... We haven't had a fire extinguisher in several years - it's going on the "to buy for the new house" list.

It feels strange to be cleaning and not have my helper with me.
