My Fourth of July

Hey, Y'all,
Actually, I began the Fourth still up and awake from the third. I had taken a short nap earlier in my new recliner (not on purpose, but while watching tevee) so I was not sleepy when midnight came. I was rearranging my farm when I looked up while sitting at my computer, and saw it was one a.m. So, around 1:30, I toddled off to bed. The next time I awakened it was around 6:30 a.m. and I arose for the day. 

I knew I needed to water my flower beds and went outside to do so. I noticed that no one had come by and noticed the weeds growing in them, obligingly pulling them I decided I had better do it. Otherwise, it wouldn't get done. After I had my breakfast of freshly made blueberry pancakes, one measly piece of hot sausage, and a cup of Joe, I heard my gardeners (Carol and Daryl) pulling up into the driveway. They had come to mow my yard for me and to visit a few minutes. It is always good to see them. Next week, I think my gardeners will be maybe Ben and Emily...I have a schedule that is provided to me.

After they left, I decided I needed to do a little blogging and also some farming. My kitchen waits for me to do the dishes after I have my lunch. In honor of the Fourth, I will be having a couple of hot dogs (fat free) and then some watermelon. I may sing some patriotic songs, too...who knows? I will definitely be reading while I have my lunch. 

This evening I plan on watching fireworks from my driveway. I think I will be able to see the same ones that Carol and Daryl will be watching at the place where they will be done. If I can't see them, well, that is okay too. 

Right now I am watching the news and they were showing hot dog eating contests. UGH! Sickening! They look like pigs cramming those into their mouth...Not my idea of fun. 

Maybe after while I will fold and put away laundry that I did on Saturday. As you can tell, I don't get in a hurry to do anything. If I don't get it done today, it will still be here tomorrow. 

That is how my Fourth of July is going. I am wearing an American Flag pin on my blouse in honor of our country. I love my country and our flag. You will not find anyone any more patriotic than I am. A flag flying in the breeze can always bring a catch to my heart and a tear to my eyes. Coming back into this country and seeing Old Glory flying in the air makes my heart glad. I love a parade with someone carrying the flag, and enjoy hearing and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. I love hearing the National Anthem sung as written without all the furbelows and flourishes that so many singers add to it. 

Well, that is it from Blabbin' Grammy today. More later. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. A happy Fourth of July to you all. May we remember those who have died to keep us free and all those who have served so we can enjoy our freedoms. Bye for now.

Happy 4th of July. Enjoy the fireworks. I look forward to the traditional fireworks set off over the Pacific from Magic Island in Honolulu.

Hi, Gail,
I actually could not see the fireworks, but I could hear them. The trees between prevented me from seeing them. :( But that is okay...Not really a big deal anyway. I have seen enough fireworks (of many kinds) to last me a lifetime. Ha.

We are free to blog, to talk, to worship, to eat hot dogs, to watch fireworks or not, and so much more! I thank God for that and for His love, patience, mercy and grace. And I thank God for you!
