Tomorrow everyone will be having July 4th celebrations with friends and having back yard barbecues.  Yes it is a holiday, but it is a very special holiday ~ the day we gained Independence from Britain and the day the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress.  Independence Day was first celebrated on July 8, 1776 in Philadelphia, PA.  And a not so well known fact is that both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on Independence Day, July 4, 1826.

It is a scorcher of a day today and will be hotter tomorrow as everyone celebrates July 4th so I feel like I've already got fireworks going on.  And it is so dry and crispy here that if a single spark were to touch down on the dried grass or leaves it would cause unruly wildfires.  So please be cautious.

This is a rug I hooked which is a design of Polly Minick's, called Boy Pulling Wagon.
I have no plans for tomorrow's holiday other than sitting comfortably in the air conditioned house and hooking on my lion rug and drawing out rug designs in the morning when it is cool in my work room.  I'd planned to take a picture of my lion rug an post here tonight but didn't get nearly as much hooking time in today as I'd hoped.  So tomorrow I'll get more hooked and finally show you a picture later in the week ~ besides, everyone will be busy tomorrow rather than reading blogs.

Happy Birthday United States of America. 

Thanks for the visit.  Saundra


  1. Saundra ~
    Your day sounds heavenly!!! DSO is having his annual 4th of July picnic and even though he does all the prep, I spend a good part of the evening cleaning up! It is nice, though, because we can watch the fireworks from his dock.
    Enjoy your hooking and I look forward to seeing the progress you've made.
    LOVE your Boy Pulling Wagon!
    Hugs :)

  2. sounds like a good day to me I have no plans and will prob do laundry and pack for a camping trip this weekend.

  4. I too love your rug! My fellows are off & gone. My day is quiet, very hot here, town fireworks for tonight. So glad just to have the day!

  5. Storms are brewing in a big way over Destin. Doubt that many are beaching it today.

    May I make a request? A selfish request? Would you please give us an easy access to your selling site on the front page of your blog? I send people over to look at all your wonderful things and I seem to limp along (as do they) to try to find your selling area.

    You have so many beautiful things you are offering ---- I hate to see them hidden.

    This is a small request!!!!!!!!!
    :-) Thanks.

  6. Bless your heart! You are such a sweetie girl. Now I can easily find your selling site - for when I hit the lottery!!!!! I'm gonna come 'a-runnin!!!!!!!
