Happy Independence Day!

Just want to check in and say I hope that each and every one that reads this blog, is having a great 4th! ;)

This weekend has been full of fun, relaxation and meditation, TV watching on the Anthony trial, cozy time with hubbie, cooking for our holiday meal, and at opening day of Larry Crowne Friday night, excited to see the first showing local. I have looked forward to this movie for a long time. I love both Julia and Tom and when they are in a movie together...........wonderful! If you haven't seen it, it's a must-see. Julia is soooooo good in this movie.

We waited in line and with my free spirit, ready for popcorn and the movie! We went after a long day of work Friday night. Got pulled over by the cops for having my bright lights on too much after the movie......that was new one for me. Anyway, I guess I've resigned to driving at night unless it's an emergency as it's very hard to see at night for me.

Ann Hill progess. Right at the round border at the right.


I always feel better when borders are done. ;)

Kind of like boundaries. We all have them. Hopefully.

I'm so enjoying my Gingher scissors with this piece.

As with alot of people in America, just waiting on the verdict from the Anthony trial.

We had an invite to watch fireworks tonight at a local Jewish camp for boys; however, it's thundering and pouring rain right now, so much as the electricity is going off and on.

Bodyguard and I cooked a DELISH meal for the two of us tonight.

Grilled filet mignon, marinaded in his famous, secret marinade,
Fresh potato salad I made with some red potatoes.
Fresh, shucked corn on the cob, boiled with butter and salt
cooked carrots
deviled eggs.

I've gotten alot more work done in the basement (an ever ending task) with donating piles, and to do piles
and plan on several things to do this week on my staycation.

Well, ready for the fireworks....whether through this lightening storm or the official ones in town.

Hope you had a great holiday. It's a great week for meditating on the positive.

And one of those positives is freedom, which is a true blessing but comes at a cost to so many families.

Happy Birthday, America.

My home, sweet, home.

Stay safe on this holiday,

  3. Dearest Jennifer,

    Yes, we at least had a great 4th of July weekend. Being with dear friends for three days.
    You also created a yummy dinner for two! Great photos of the beautiful 'you' and that is inside and outside! Thanks for a great post and for mentioning those that serve. That's the other side of the coin that reads FREEDOM!

    Lots of love,


  4. sounds like you had a great time :) love the photo of you in the foyer with your pop corn .... :) love mouse xxxx

  5. Interesting fact - I got pulled over for having my highbeams on also about a year ago....seems that it is a sign of drunk driving - not lowering your high beams....I was NOT drunk driving but have a hard time seeing at night also.

  6. The dinner sounds delicious..
    Hope you had a wonderful day..
