Happy 4th of July! It’s a beautiful morning, the sun was pure gold on a towering lavender crepe myrtle, feels like July, a good thing, actually. A good thing. One crazy thing this summer, we’ve had plenty of rain, but the clouds have been flat–haven’t seen one cumulus cloud–I miss them. About to make my potato salad, thought I might swim, but really, just want to relax. Think I’ll make peach cobbler before the peaches I bought Saturday rot. Wanted to post a patriotic song, so I’m posting this one–it’s always stirred me, so here’s a Happy Birthday to Ye, America. Long may she wave.
