Happy 4th of July

July 5, 2020

Hello again!  I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July, whether by yourself or with family.  I tried to make it fun for myself, but it was still a bit lonely.  Oh the plans I had for the holiday.  They will need to wait until next year.  “Next year”.  “When this is over”.  I find myself saying these lines a lot.  So, there are a lot of things that will definitely have to wait, but there are so many things I can do right now.  Yes, I keep telling myself this, too.  I just need to listen!  Haha!

Although I had wanted to go all out, I kept my decor simple.  A few plants and some flags gave my front porch a patriotic flair.  I made myself some red, white and blue jello, some baked beans (which I forgot to turn the temperature down on the oven and they got a bit dried out, but they were still tasty), some fruit and a pulled pork sandwich.

I think next time I’ll serve on a blue or red plate so it shows off better.

After it cooled down outside, a little anyway, around 11:30pm, I went out and lit a few sparklers.  Okay, these sparklers must have been the really safe kind.  They were pretty much duds, lots of smoke, not so much sparkle, but I made some figure eights and enjoyed the memories it brought back.  Next time I’ll have to find some real ones.


I pray that next year we will have more love and grace and less hatred and violence in our country!

    Hi Laura, I tried to respond before but didn’t know how to do it. I give you credit for celebrating by yourself.  Everything looked so nice. So happy belated Fourth of July.  Love,Aunt Luana
