Hopeing everyone is haveing a fun and happy and safe long holiday! Our weather here has been uncharacteristically chilly the last several days. Weatherman said July 3 when I was out watching fireworks and for a change freezing instead of bordering on heat stroke, it was coldest July 3rd in 46 years. Brrr, LOL. easy child did manage to go to the fireworks on the 3rd, but, since we got home she has again steadily declined (there is a post in watercooler about her ER visit). She has to go to work soon here this morning, and the town has been just nuts since 830 or so last nite, (another post I replied to in watercooler about how young to lite firecrackers) So all of us here have been awake all nite. :-( So- I am fairly sure we are skipping the parade we were thinking of going to this morning- (me, difficult child and son) I am not sure what we might do later, depends on if we get some sleep, here, and how easy child feels. I made some chocolate peanut butter ribbon homemade ice cream last nite. There was a giant yellow and many other colors butterly beside ice cream maker about 10 PM. It was so pretty! I was surprised to see it out so late, and by the ice cream maker on patio table. (loud, cold and wet) Enjoy your day! Looks like the weather here is gonna be very very nice, even if it is a little cool. Bummer is the recent floods have caused there to be horrible amounts of mosquitos, and our town does not spray or anything for them, anymore. I thought they were going to carry me away Thurs nite. And becuz of my medications, I do worry a little bit about things like West Nile, now. :-( Happy Saturday!
