Summer is flying by and we are ready to celebrate the 4th of July. I hope everyone is ready for picnics and parades with beautiful fireworks to end the day's celebration. I am hoping for a day of celebration minus rain as I am very anxious to watch some fireworks. We have not ventured out to watch the fireworks display in the last several years. There is never enough time in a day and the days do fly by. We have been busy as always working on the house, yard and garden. Settling my Mother into her new apartment has been an enormous job. Gladly we only have a few details to finish up. I have made 4 bears in the last few weeks and busy cutting out a giraffe today. They are so much fun to make! I love to paint their spots! I finally finished my new flower garden fence, scare crow, bench made from some of my Dad's old wood he left for me, and two bird houses. That was one of my projects this summer. I still have a few left and I hope the rain will let me paint the deck, front porch and redesign the front yard landscaping. All 3 will be HOT jobs. I hope you enjoy your summer and celebrations. Always remember to thank God for your blessings. HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! Bear hugs to you. ~Carol
