Happy Belated 4th of July!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

We had a busy weekend with lots of chores and errands. But we took time out to visit a craft fair and see some local fireworks. At the fair we saw a couple of people we've been seeing for years on the craft fair circuit. We didn't know they would be at that venue, so it was a nice surprise. Working a craft fair is a very hard job. You have to set up and pull down, sometimes every day. But this couple thrives on it. I think it would be way too big a grind for me.

The fireworks were fun too. A lot of families were present, and a few extended families. I envied the fun they were having. But I had my camera to play with and I tried my hand for the first time at taking pictures of fireworks like the one above. I got more good shots than I thought I would. Still, I obviously need to study up on it.

Meanwhile, the summer moves along. The daylilies are starting to bloom, taking over from the roses. And the phoebe birds that have been nesting on our porch for the last few years are starting into their second brood of eggs. They had a very crowded nest there last month. I can't believe they're starting into the whole process again! We've got some repair work to do out that way, but we're going to hold off till they've finished raising their family.

I hope everyone is having a great summer!
