It was surely a delightful 4th of July this year though I admit there were times when I was wondering if it was going to rain us out…it never did! Mom was struggling with her ankle some but did manage to join us for the firework show which was of course spectacular as always. I’ve loved fireworks since I was a kid and hope that never changes. We went home and did yet more of our own fireworks and dare I say it? We had a blast…ugh, I know but I had to say it! Lovely gave blood recently and won in a drawing (pun possibly intended) to actually meet one of the “wolves” from the Twilight series…Sam as he’s called in the movie…it actually made it to the newspaper and was quite the event. As it turns out he’s from Montana…the little town of Poplar as a matter of fact…who would have thought? Love said he was a very nice got and of course she had her picture taken with him. I have no doubt that will show up in her blog at some point.
I’ve several pictures to share so let’s get this show on the road! The evening continue to be spectacular. I expect this is because of the endless fight for it to try acting like summer her. We rarely have days where it breaks the seventies and in fact often struggle to leave the sixties. It’s one of the coolest summers I can remember for us. You can eat your heart out or not depending on what kind of weather suits your fancy. This has given us some wonderful skies to enjoy I have to admit . It can actually look like it can’t be real sometimes. Sometimes rainbows try to form even though there’s not been much rain
but even without the rainbows the skies take my breath away and leave me with no choice but to take out my camera once again and start clicking away. I can’t always see anything but the glorious colors in the sky but some are more imaginative and see a lot more but all in all I’m just glad not to be either be dying because of stifling heat or terrible humidity and I can walk right out my back door and see this every day ! This is God’s country!
We coaxed our little princess to sit down and have her 4th of July picture. It took some work but it was sure worth it though we had to work at it she did pretty good and she kept her royal dignity about her…or did she ?
The fireworks were really good…I think my favorites are the ones that have actual shapes like this heart though the smiley faces are wonderful I never could capture them for some reason…go figure. Still the classics are pretty hard to beat don’t you thinkSo all in all I’d say this summer has hit the mid-point with a bang which leaves me wondering if it’s this good now what could the finale be Whatever it is I can hardly wait
Surprisingly some flowers survived our huge hail and the tornado that swept through on Father’s Day and like I’ve said before the courage and strength of these things inspire me to no end since God can clothe these in such splendor how much more is He able to take care of usdon’t you think? The cows have returned to pasture and they are quite unconcerned about politics and various global events…maybe we’ve got a lot to learn from them God bless and keep you!
