Tonight I put to bed another Fourth of July weekend. The anticipation and planning for the holiday weekend is always exciting.
The hard part is trying to fit every thing and everyone into the plans for the weekend. My daughters were especially excited about the weekend and planning all the food we would need and they made out a grocery list.
It’s a good thing they were thinking about meals because it was the last thing I felt like doing after a long VERY HOT week of working.
Part of their plans for the weekend was getting up early to go and pick strawberries at the local strawberry farm just around the corner from our home. We set our alarms for six am this morning and headed over to the farm. I would have liked to sleep in but picking strawberries is an annual tradition. Not necessarily on the 4th of July but each year we go picking strawberries.
This year grandson Jack accompanied, my husband, two daughters, one boyfriend and me to the farm. It was a beautiful morning with lots of beautiful berries.
Happy Fourth of July to all and a special thank you to all our service men and women serving and to all those who have done so faithfully in the past.
