What are you up to this holiday weekend? We are working in the yard this morning, since all of the rain we've gotten has softened the normally brick-hard soil. I love going outside after a monsoon rain and pulling weeds. I know it sounds weird, but it's very satisfying!
In the afternoon we're going to the neighbor's house. They've planned a block party to meet everyone in the neighborhood. They are quite the social butterflies! We've lived in this house for 4 years and still don't know everyone.
This morning I'm also making carrot raisin salad to take over and Hubby is going to make a strawberry-rhubarb pie. We're not big pie eaters, so this way we get to eat a piece without being obligated to eat the whole thing!
I hope that all of us in this country take a few moments to consider what this holiday really stands for, the people who gave their lives to protect it, and what we, as individuals, are willing to do to make sure that the Declaration of Independence stands strong.
