Happy Fourth

Happy Fourth to all of you. I hope you are having a safe and "cool" holiday. We are blessed to live in this country. Thanks to all that fight for freedom and keep us safe.
My office, hah, the little bowl says Cherries on it. The dog always moves the pillows around or pushes them on the floor so that he is comfortable.
Guess who came to visit. Two of my Colorado grandchildren. (computer cords and some one's feet as well)
So nice to have A/C. Our village is still in a blackout.....day 6 for them. My son is still out of power. Roads are still closed.
My mother-in-law is doing okay. The transfusions helped her anemia. A kidney infection may have been pat of the renal failure. So she is stable now. Thanks for your concerns and prayers.

Happy Fourth, Debby! Glad to hear that your mil is better!
Hope they get all that power back on soon! Some of the areas near here, small towns, that were flooded during our most recent tropical storm, Debby, are still trying to dry out.

We have had thunderstorms off and on since noon. So glad you get to see your Colorado grandchildren!

Hoping your MIL continues to get better. Is your power outage from storms? We are over 100 degrees both today and tomorrow and it looks like 90's for days to come. It is crazy for northern Il. Love that you got to see the Grands. We actually have all of ours..the ones that live here as well as the two from Vegas and two from Florida. I need to try to get them together for a picture.

Hi Debby, I am so glad your family has survived our second hurricane! I don't think I was ever so frightened. I have had the kids and their big puppies at my house since the storm. Still no power for them. This heat is really something else. I don't think Ohio can survive a summer of too many 90+ days. Can you recall days like this in your childhood here?
Your sampler is so wonderful! I love all the bright colors and the squares that tell your story.
Glad Star made it through the storm. Take care, Elizabeth

So many are out of power or have fires. I am very family with renal failure as I used to care for dialysis patients. I hope your MIL continues to improve. I hope you had a good day-we just came inside from watching our neighbors shoot off a ton of fireworks. We never do.
