Even though it’s just the two of us, we still like to Celebrate the Fourth of July! We do miss the big family gatherings we had before we moved here four years ago, but I guess that’s just a part of life.
There has been so much political discord lately that it was very entertaining to find out that we Democrats were planning to launch a Civil War on the fourth. There were very clever, stylized “letters home from the front lines” and it made me laugh and took my mind off of my daily woes.
Dave has never really enjoyed going to see community fireworks, so we didn’t fight the crowds this year -or the heat or mosquitoes- but our neighbors set up their own displays. All I had to do was stand in the front yard and watch in all directions. Of course, it all made us miss our Dusty Puppy. He was terrified of fireworks and thunder, so in a way I’m glad he wasn’t here this year but he is never far from our thoughts.
Trying something new in my health journey. I ordered a month’s worth of Thrive from my friend Caryn. It’s a great boost for my energy, so we shall see.
