We had a wonderful 4th of July. I hope you did too. We stayed home and relaxed and had a lovely barbecue. The weather was perfect.
Fortunately, we can see the local fireworks at a semi-secret location. Just up the hill, and only the folks in our neighborhood go there. So it's quiet, low traffic and just right. Except for the mosquitoes (I always make sure to spray all of us with deet before we head up the hill). The fireworks were magnificent and exciting, coming into the sky in an array of shapes and colors. They were a poem!
Independence Day is extra special. It celebrates our great nation and the freedom so many have fought for, and are still fighting for. I always think of the heroes who have fallen for our freedom. We are so fortunate to be in this great country. We have had a flag flying at our home every single day since September 11, 2001.
