But as it is, we know the drill--picnics, hotdogs, concerts, fireworks, as well as, for many of us, lots of sunscreen and mosquito repellent.
For the past few years we've spent our July 4ths at dear friends; dipping in their pool, grilling, chatting with a convivial group, and then at dark, carrying our lawn chairs out into the street to watch a nearby fireworks show. But a few months ago, our friends moved to Louisiana, and we are really going to miss our special celebrations with them.
But as for me, having just finished writing a book, this 4th of July I suspect I won't mind curling up on the sofa and napping. Maybe we'll watch Independence Day. And we do have hotdogs, local organic ones. My hubby found these directions for making spiral hot dogs--isn't that fun? We'll let you know how that works.
So how about you, REDS and readers? What's your fave way to spend your 4th?
(And a little safety reminder from JR: Stay cool, and keep your dogs and cats inside. More pets are lost on the 4th of July than any other day of the year.)
HAPPY 4th OF JULY FROM JUNGLE RED!
