Where did June go? It’s already the 4th of July! It’s a beautiful day here, perfect for celebrating America’s birthday.
We came home from the beach yesterday. Two weeks there flew by so quickly. We wanted to get an early start yesterday to beat the traffic. When I got up, I went on the deck and saw that I was finally up early enough to see the sunrise. I got my camera and Mr. SP and I raced to the beach to catch the show.
We were there just in time!
After the show, we packed up, finished cleaning the house, and then made the long drive home. I always miss the beach the entire trip home but when I crest a certain hill in Concord, I see my first view of the mountains and then I’m glad to be home. I love the beach, but the mountains will always be home to me.
I had a craving for cake last night and decided to make one to celebrate the 4th. I was sure that I had 4th of July cupcake papers, but I didn’t, so I made a sheet cake. Mr. SP decorated it!
How are you celebrating the 4th? We’re going to clean our boat from the beach trip. We were only able to take it out three times because it was windy and rough on the sound nearly every day. We’ll clean the boat inside and out and then take it back to the lake tomorrow. Mr. SP has tomorrow off! Yeah! My yard sprouted all sorts of weeds over the past two weeks and I’ll work on that today, too. Tonight we are going to a tennis party at Keith and Nicole’s house. I hope we’ll see some fireworks from their deck.
I’m off to run in the woods. I can’t wait to run off-road after running for two weeks on flat, paved streets at the beach. The last time I ran in the woods, I came as close as you can get to stepping on a very long black snake. You can bet that my eyes will be wide open as I run!
