Well, the big July 4th weekend is (finally) over! Our little fire department had 7 calls over the weekend, 5 in 24 hours! But, no one was seriously injured, and no structures were damaged too badly. Fireworks in our rain-starved area was the culprit in all the fires! One person got cut by a boat prop, but not in any serious danger.
So, did your nestlings come home to visit? And, are you (secretly) glad that they went home? Ours did not come -- we had guests from Atlanta, instead. I wish they could have stayed longer! I really cooked up a storm, and she asked for all the recipes, so I was happy! We swam, threw tennis balls in the lake for all the dogs, and generally had a wonderful time. Then, they left on Sunday.
One DD has a new job, and hasn't accrued vacation, yet, so will probably not come until Christmas. The other DD is very sensitive to heat/humidity, and doesn't really enjoy it here in the summer, so we probably won't see her until Christmas, either.
Do you enjoy fireworks? I like to see them, sometimes, but won't sit out in a mosquito-infested dark to watch them... I think I may be a party-pooper!
How are you spending your summer? Is everyone enjoying Cookieee's house/pool party this week?
Any new empty nest items we need to vent/discuss? Let's hear it!
