Happy 4th July!
Wishing you all a happy & safe Independence Day and yes I do join in the celebrations, despite being a Brit. Although you'd be surprised at how many Americans ask me if we celebrate it too in England! My response is usually "absolutely, we celebrate getting rid of y'all"!Today we have 'big doings' going on just 25 miles away. A historic day for our little area, as we are visited by a former President here! Yep, George W Bush will be in town later and we won't be there. I'm afraid we're just not that fussed to fight thousands of people, 100 degrees and 50% humidity.So we are going to go and set a geocache and name it 'Born on the 4th of July', then later visit our towns celebrations. We have a beautiful lake here and our Fire Dept put on one of the best firework displays around over it, so we'll be there at dark. It's rather nice actually to do what we want, as this is our first 4th July without family or guests.And up top is the Red Velvet Cake (his fave) I made the Hubster for his birthday, made from scratch for the first time and I am NOT a baker, boy it was good :-) We also surprised him with a hamburger grill at our good friends, he had fun.Enjoy your 4th of July, what are you up to?
