Independence Day…

I’ve been slacking when it comes to this blog.  I blame July.  The whole month.  There is heat and vacations and a major holiday and our anniversary and summer activities…

S and I spent Independence Day with my family on the family farm (not a working farm) in West Virginia.  The picnic was much smaller this year because the weather was bad (rain and fog) and the family has started to spread out more and more.  In the old days, or just a decade ago, there would have been 50 or 60 people up on the farm on a holiday. This year there were only 26 adults and 10 children.  It was also the first year without my grandmother who was the matriarch of the family.  That was kind of hard.  But there was a newly planted tree dedicated to her and that was very nice.

The sparklers were extra smokey this year.  Don’t know why.
