Is it Friday again?



Is it Friday again? It seems like this week went by very quickly. Is it possible that is it the first of July? Seems were just talking about snow...spring flowers..and now it is almost the 4th of a July!


In the USA, this is a "long holiday weekend." In Canada, today is Canada Day. There will parades, picnics, barbecues and fireworks to celebrate there. So, best wishes to our neighbors in Canada as they celebrate, too!

It is also the time of lightning bugs in our backyard... they never fail to amaze me...one of nature's wonders.

What will you do this weekend? Is it summer where you are? Do you find yourself remembering celebrations past...when times were simpler and sparklers were the main event of the evening? I always connect lemonade with this holiday...slices of watermelon...strawberry shortcake, too.

Instead of sparklers, we have many days of illegal fireworks going off in our town that shake the house and rattle the windows. They frequently go off all night. (Giving new meaning to the phrase "money to burn...") I would rather hear the sounds of crickets and tree frogs! Poor dogs barking everywhere...

Will you see a parade? Have a cook out? Take a weekend trip? Maybe visit the beach or a lake?

Wishing you a safe and happy weekend, wherever you are, whatever you do...


As always.

enjoy the day!

Happy 4th, Helen! Your dolls look so patriotic; they make me think of my childhood, where a small town 4th of July celebration was the very best :-)

And lightening bugs competed with the sparklers...
