happy 4th, USA!

I hope everyone is having a safe and fun 4th!

I had a great day today. I had one massage client this morning. I know I know, but it's 4th of July? well, this guy is MILITARY so it was the least I could do. It was the only day he could do it, so I served my country today :c)

After my client I headed out to my friend Charlotte's house for a sewing retreat day. Charlotte is Jason's girlfriend Kim's mother..and she is a quilter! How fun is that? Let me tell you, it is VERY fun.

I worked on my plaid star struck and she worked on her snowball quilt and we talked and laughed for about 5 hours worth! Jason and Kim were both there and they just looked at us like we were out of our minds....but they took enough time to take pics of us to document our fun.

Look...we both sew barefoot! :cD

Today was also a good day to get the tires rotated and spin balanced on my car since the tire center was not that busy. They worked on it while I was at Charlotte's and she dropped me back to pick up my car after. How is that for multitasking?!

This evening we were invited over to a friend's house on the lake for a BBQ and a ride in their pontoon boat. It was very relaxing and enjoyable...

I'm pooped now though. It is 9pm and the fireworks are in full swing here. Who knows how late they will go into the night. The dogs are a bit freaked out. You can smell the gun powder on the air outside.

All day long I've been thinking it is saturday. It's only Wednesday! I'm all turned around..but at least there are more hours left in this week to do what I need to get done. Back in full swing tomorrow!



  1. Thanks for sharing your fun! Kids took great pictures!

  2. I, too, quiltered today barefooted. It's a natural thing here in SC, isn't it?

  3. I'm so glad you've got someone to sit and sew with. hurrah! thanks for the pic of the fireworks.

  4. I am barefooted all of the time, unless leaving the house. I can't stand shoes!!

  5. Oh what a fun day that was! You both look like you were having a grand time! And BBQ - mmm my mouth is watering!

  6. what a great new firendship you have found in your son's possible future MIL? ;) I think it is great that your two families know each other.

    In 2000 when we lived in Dalzell, SC, just behind Shall AFB, we had spent the entire day of the 4th planting schrubs and flowers. We finished just in time to take showers and then sit outide on our patio for the fierworks! ;c) ~Bonnie in SE Texas
