Country Life = A Quiet 4th of July
It's quiet here today. Brian & Jessica decided not to make the trip home to WV since they are going to the beach for a few days soon with Brian's family.
Kevin & Katie are spending the day with her family in PA.
George was supposed to have the day off, but ended up working a double!
We planned to go to fireworks last night at Oglebay Park in Wheeling, but those plans fell through.
George & I had hoped to go to our favorite fireworks show tonight in downtown Wheeling, but as I said, he's now working. And besides that, it's raining. And thundering.
I did grill some burgers for our lunch before he left for work, but I burned the burgers. We were able to salvage them, but they weren't the best we've ever had by any stretch of the imagination.
Does it sound like I'm complaining? I'm really not. We've had lots of great 4th of July celebrations in the past, and Lord willing, there will be more to come in the future. And I'm truly thankful to be living in this great nation, today and every other day of the year.
So, for this year, at our house, the chickens ended up with the biggest celebration. Any day they get watermelon is a day to celebrate!
And we still may get to see fireworks for the 4th. They are supposed to have them this Sunday night in Moundsville. Though I'm not entirely sure that will happen either. The fairgrounds there along with the surrounding areas had some severe flash flooding a couple nights ago. A baseball tournament had to be cancelled at the last minute. So maybe there will be fireworks, and maybe there won't.
But if there is, Kevin and Katie would appreciate it. It's not every one who gets to see fireworks for their first anniversary!
