Flowers, Fone, Festive Fourth...
These beautiful roses all came out of Mr. C's Rose Garden. Five different varieties here and they smell wonderful. We love heirloom and heritage roses and especially the fragrant types.
Yesterday was our 15th wedding anniversary. We were not in Monaco however very thankful to be together here at home. We did amble out to our favorite local restaurant for lunch. Mr. C is still extremely tender and colorful so he gets lots of stares. We saw friends dining with other friends. They surprised us by paying our bill. Our adorable waitress (who reminds me of Sheryl Crow) surprised us with a triple dessert complete with a lit sparkler. Life is good and we are blessed.
Somewhere between home, the gas station and the Trauma ICU I lost my little cell phone. Since it hasn't appeared in about 10 days I purchased a new phone. I selected the Big Easy for elderly people like me who need very large numbers. Nothing SMART here. No iPhone for me. I have used a TracFone since 2005 and been quite satisfied with its capabilities and coverage. I merely have a cell phone for emergencies and frivolous phone calls...like to my daughter and granddaughters and such. ;o)
Today is the Fourth of July here in America. May our flag fly free...although freedom is never free!
Thank you to every person who has fought to keep our freedom since the beginning.
I enjoy watching a good fireworks show. I used to live 3 miles from Disneyland in Anaheim so I had fabulous firework shows every night of Summer. What I don't like is fireworks being sold on every corner and people who are not responsible setting off FIREworks where they shouldn't. I pray for the safety of all and please no fires. We are continuing to grieve for Arizona and the tragic loss of so many Hotshots.
Healing continues for Mr. C however he really needs quality sleep. He is not able to get comfortable in bed or in our chairs. His broken ribs hurt all the way around to his back. Funny how everything falls to the floor and he is unable to retrieve...that's where I can help. He isn't able to drive so I do that too. I am thankful that I am able to help him. I am such a homebody that this suits me quite well. Staying home with my honey and seeing what the next 15 years hold in store for us makes me very happy.
Festive Fourth and may you enjoy your time doing exactly what makes you the happiest
