Sparklers and Sprinklers

Looking forward to a hot day, with a neighborhood bicycle parade and picnic in our local park.

We’ve picked raspberries from the backyard, and simmered and sieved them into a bright sauce, ready to make homemade ice cream. My ninety-year-old grandma will be here, as well as the three-year-old twins, and as night falls, we’ll join our neighbors to lay on blankets and watch fireworks light the sky.

May we enjoy all we have this Independence Day, and never take our rights for granted. Let’s exercise them regularly, especially the right to vote and participate in decisions that affect us all.

Have a safe day, and stay cool!
