The 4th

Happy Fourth of July!

Could it really be here already??

Around here 4th of July means summer is half over (or maybe half started to those glass half-full kinds of people).  

In the summer life slows down but it feels like it actually speeds up.  I really, honestly don't know what happened to June.  It was here and then it was gone.    

So now that we're at the halfway point what have I gotten accomplished around here?

Yeah, well... not much.  I don't know about you but during the summer months, my decorating mojo goes out the window.  I have a huge list of things I'm excited about starting/finishing but not too much actually happens.

I want to hang out with my boys so that's what I do.  The other stuff can wait because school will be back in before I know it.

To keep with my summer theme of doing nothing I'll share my 4th of July decor.

It's the same as last year.

Once again, in full communist fashion, I did not put up any 4th of July decorations.


I bought a lovely American flag swag banner to drape across my porch but decided it would be too much work to put it out there.

Too much work?

Well, it is 97 degrees which according to the heat index feels like 1 million degrees plus 100% humidity.  I'll start sweating and my hair will start to frizz if I even think of going out there right now.

Maybe next year.

I hope you all have a safe and Happy Independence Day!

God Bless America!

  1. Around this time is when I usually give up on my plants...but I'm hanging in there, still watering them and surprise, they are still alive in this heat! I agree, the summer goes WAY too fast! Enjoy your family--that's the important stuff! Happy 4th to you.
