On Wednesday, we celebrated Independence Day here in the states. I'm so grateful to live in this beautiful country of ours. Dan and I had a low key celebration. We went out for ice cream, sat on the front step and talked to some of the neighbors, then opted to watch fireworks and a concert -- A Capitol Fourth -- on television.
Dan and I both had days off this week, so we've had a Staycation. The feeling of not knowing what day it is and just taking each one as it comes, has been refreshing. Last night, he made a fire in the fire pit on our patio, and we stayed up late watching the flames and considering whether we should try camping again. It's been years since we last went, and it was always a regular part of our summers. Today, we went to the History Colorado Center and saw an exhibit on the history of baseball. We also saw an exhibit called "100 Things Colorado" which had a 100 items depicting our state's history. Both were very interesting.
My super clean house! I'm grateful that I am back to full strength and have the ability to clean like a crazy person, like I did yesterday. And of course thankful to have a home to clean.
I have mentioned that I'm taking a weekly health class, and really need to do a post on this. One of the things I'm continually grateful for is the other members of the class who are always so encouraging, even when I have a tough week like last week and struggled to stay on program.
Every night I feel so blessed when I pick up a book from my nightstand, grab my book light, and get in a couple chapters with my hubby sleeping beside me. It's just the best way to end the day.
To all of you, I hope you had a good week as well:)
