It's raining . . . again!
So far this summer has been unusually rainy.
It seems like every day there is a downpour.
I must say I haven't minded this break from lugging the hose around daily to water my plants and the garden is doing great with this steady watering.
It's looking a bit iffy for outdoor plans on the 4th of July.
Our current plans include time on the lake, dinner from the grill, yard games and fireworks.
Just in case it's a rain out and we're stuck inside, I think I'll spend some time today doing a little decorating.
While cleaning up my photo folders this morning, I came across these from a few years ago and now I'm inspired to dig out a few patriotic pieces.
If you're looking for a simple way to add a patriotic touch to your home, it doesn't get much easier than tossing some poker chips into a clear vase and popping in a few flags.
Patriotic fruit is pretty simple too, not to mention tasty.
A win-win for sure!
Come rain or shine, we'll be ready to celebrate America's birthday.
Although, if it does rain, I hope it quits before the fireworks start.
Wishing my American readers a safe and happy
Fourth of July!!
