It's been so long since I had enjoyed a three day weekend because of the pandemic and not working, I'd almost forgotten what it felt like, but it's been so hectic with work and free lance projects, it's welcomed. Last week before heading home I did a window display for an antique dealers shop window...couldn't resist using the Boston Terrier door stops...and then took a peruse around his shop. Many modern Independence Day traditions stem from Americas early independence celebrations. It use to be quite common for the Declaration of Independence to be read aloud, followed by muskets and cannons being fired. It's safe to say the earliest of Americans celebrated the 4th of July loudly and proudly.

We are gathering with family, and the Lad at the Mothers for our 4th of July. While gin and Pimms poured yesterday, today will be a nice cook out on the grill, and getting buzzed on more Pimms Cups all around. No fireworks this year, although we may see them from the house anyhow.... but we plan to have a fire in the firepit.... and may light some sparklers if the mood strikes.
