Happy July 4th Weekend
When I was a child I was happy with sparklers, a few that put off booms, and old Smokey Joe.
My dad always had a Folgers Coffee can for me to collect the sparklers the following morning.
At the time I thought that was strange using a coffee can.
Today I look back upon those days as being simple.
I am not fond of July 4th only for the loud noises, the clutter not picked up, and mostly how it scares all the pets and animals inside or out of the house.
My hair dresser told me that she has to drug her dog the day prior so he can cope with the noise.
Again I am grateful to be living in a home where I don't have to hear any of it.
This is a glass sunflower that is in a pot in my backyard.
At night it glows different colors.
It is completely solar operated.
Have a happy safe holiday weekend.
You may consider a coffee can to pick up litter!
Take care of your critters.
Eat traditional summer foods that makes you appreciate our life today.
Celebrate with friends and family.
