Galveston Island had our very own special holiday over the past week! It’s called Juneteenth. It was a big deal this year as it was the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth. We celebrated it here in a big way! There was a Ms Juneteenth Pageant. We had our annual Al Edwards Banquet. This was a fundraiser for education. I went to the Juneteenth Gala on Thursday. It was honoring several people who has made the day one that is celebrated on a national level. Through this all, we spent time registering people to vote and educating them as to the importance of voting. I am posting the link to the blog post that I did a week ago. If you didn’t get to read it then, it will help you understand what Juneteenth is!
Here is this week’s blogs that I am following and really like!
The Chatterbox Chick is funny. She is totally irreverent, and pretty thought provoking. Plus I like her pic of TBBT!
I just had to follow My Little Rock when I saw “organized kitchen”. I am trying to learn that one. Then I glanced at some of her recipes. Some I can already eat as a vegetarian and some like Dr Pepper Pulled Pork and Chorizo & Cheese Quesadillas that I can make vegetarian. Yes you can make vegetarian pulled pork! And I live in Texas where Dr. Pepper is the state drink!
Trkingmomoe has some great recipes. And they actually grow their own pineapples!
And my posts of the week are:

My Picture of the Week! It looks so good, I want to eat it!
And I just had to share this poem. Denise just got back from D.C. with a side trip to Arlington Cemetery. I was there in April. She expressed so beautifully what I felt.
