Our Fourth of July

It has been cooler here this week, with evening rain showers and sweet breezes coming through the window which makes sleeping just heavenly.  This is our monsoon season here and I love it!  I'm not crazy about the extra humidity when it's hot, but that's such a rarity, I can deal with it. How amazing that my sleep can be so deep and satisfying when it's cooler.  It's a pleasure to wake up refreshed instead of in a fog.

Our fourth of July was one of our best.  In fact, I can't remember a better 4th of July since I was a kid.  For the first time since I've lived here (25 years), some fireworks became legal and so we were able to have sparklers and a few ground displays.  This was the first time my boys had really gotten to experience fireworks so it was a lot of fun for them and we have a good time.  My sons grilled outside and made hamburgers and a grilled chicken breast for me.  I was able to put together some deviled eggs and pasta salad.  I was in a lot of pain after the day was done, but it was worth it.  Spending time watching my boys light fireworks for the first time was a memory I won't soon forget.  We were able to watch the fireworks from town from our back porch and my youngest always plays his patriotic music in the background.  So fun!!  Just a great memory.

I hope you had a wonderful fourth of July, too.  God bless America!
