The 4th of July is about celebrating the birth of our nation, and our independence.
American families celebrate this day typically by going to see parades, have picnics, barbecue, play outdoor games, and watch firework displays.
To all my Blogger friends, I wanted to wish you a Happy 4th of July, remind you to be safe when dealing with fireworks, and to pay attention to your surroundings; because this country isn’t as safe as it used to be.
Bulldog Man and I went to town to pick up the mail at the post office; Bulldog Man came out with a package addressed to me. I know I hadn’t ordered anything, and we weren’t expecting medications, Bulldog Man and I were curious what was inside. As I opened the package, there was a nicely wrapped item. I removed the tissue paper, and to my surprise, there was a beautiful quilted flag with a note attached.
Mama Pea, thank you so very much for this beautiful quilted flag you made. Receiving this flag means the world to me, especially right now….you’ve placed a smile on my face, and happy tears in my eyes. Girl, I wish I was as talented and patient as you when it comes to sewing!!!! Maybe one day I’ll pickup quilting through the internet like I did crocheting.J Or……. maybe one day in the distant future, we could get together, and you could teach me how to quilt.
As for our 4th of July celebration, we will remain home, maybe do a little barbecue out back, piddle around the house, and if we can, watch a little bit of fireworks off in a distance from our porch. Our weatherman is expecting rain, and severe storms………….and we will be the crazy people under the porch overhang grilling in the rain.
I also would like to take this opportunity to welcome a new friend to my blog. Thank you for following me, please sit back and enjoy the ride!!! If there’s any questions you may have about my blog, please feel free to drop me a comment, or an e-mail, and I’ll be more than happy to return a response.
Here are a few pictures of the blooming flowers around the good old homestead.
And here we go again, another harvest of beans, and my first 3 jalapenos!!!
