a Happy 4th of July

July 4, 2012

Happy 4th to you All! America is the best — we can complain about our current state of affairs, our political climate, the debate about the actual climate, but in the end we Americans have it so good.  Today I wave my flag to the land of the free!

I started this day by walking out the back door to pick some wild blueberries.

The blueberries are ripe and delicious! We’ve been picking them as often as we can in order to harvest as much as the season offers.  Of course I made blueberry muffins using my favorite recipe.

We hung around home most of the day; cleaned the chicken coop &  hosed ourselves off since it was another hot one {who am I kidding, we did that because it’s plain old fun!}. The weather has been beautiful here.  Lots of sunshine and heat, punctuated with random showers and thunder storms.

After bbq’ing with our friends tonight we came home to a lightning show.  Nature’s own fireworks!  Check it out on my video here {if you received this post via email & do not see the video…go to my blog site}:

I loved today.  Spending time with my husband outside at home and visiting with friends to celebrate the holiday…a very happy 4th! I hope yours was, too!
