We really didn’t do anything to celebrate the 4th today. Part of me kind of wished we had elaborate plans to kayak somewhere, or bbq with friends, or cozied up to watch fireworks on a summery patch of grass near a river…. but this year, we were content relaxing and enjoying the day uneventfully at home.
A few weeks ago, I bought us matching patriotic shirts and I
told asked Irving if we could be twinsies!
I slept til almost 9 this morning, and spent the rest of the day reading Eclipse (Yep, I finished New Moon at 1:30am on Saturday night!) This time, I downloaded it as an ebook to the kindle app on my phone. I wasn’t sure if it would be too small or too annoying on such a small screen, but I’m totally engrossed with it and it’s working out great!
Other than a quick excursion to Best Buy and Trader Joes, we didn’t leave the house. Irving played his new FIFA World Cup xbox game and I did a bit of scrapbooking and more reading.
Once it got dark, I went up to our roof to watch some fireworks. One of the perks of living in “the valley” is being able to see so many fireworks displays close by. I had SIX shows to watch all the way around! But the best ones were the illegal ones being blasted off in a parking lot right behind my building. I’m pretty sure that’s illegal and probably dangerous though!
Even though we love to travel the world, I know that we are both happy and proud to call America our home.
Happy Independence Day!
Did any of you watch fireworks from a grassy knoll or BBQ on the beach?
