So, How Was Your Fourth?

Ed and I spent a quiet day at home yesterday–thinking it was Saturday all day.  Did you happen to do that, too?

Ed and I began our day with a trip to Wal-mart for pet supplies.  Can I just say how amazed I was at the people who were out shopping at 10 a.m. on the Fourth of July?!  Apparently, everyone waited until the last minute to buy their cookout supplies.  I hate shopping at Wal-mart, so we left there after buying pet food.  We stopped by a grocery store to pick  up a few more items.  It was crazy at the grocery store, too!

Ed grilled hamburgers for us, which we followed with a slice of strawberry shortcake for dessert (from the grocery store).  You should have seen that cake when I got home with it!  The bag boy set the cake on it’s end in the seat section of the grocery cart, and I didn’t notice because Ed was pushing the cart.  Of course, placing the cake on it’s end caused some of the strawberry topping to run off the top of the cake and all down the side!  I was so mad when I got home and saw this!   If we didn’t live 30 miles away, I’d have promptly taken that cake back to the store!  What kind of person puts a cake on its end?

Later in the day, Ed felt the need  to go outside and spend a couple of hours with his “other girl” whom I refer to as “Alice”.  Ed’s “other girl” is his Allis Chalmers tractor, and he frequently enjoys spending time with her!  After mowing with “Alice” for a while, Ed came in and decided it was naptime, I agreed!   It may have been the highlight of the entire day!

That was pretty much the excitement of our holiday, with the exception of a surprise visit from a couple of our friends, at the end of the day.  We’ve known each other and been friends since high school–and that was a long time ago!  It’s always good to get together with old friends, even if it’s only for a brief time.

So, that was our exciting Fourth of July for 2012.  How was your holiday?

  1. Sounds like a nice 4th of July. Our 4th was very quiet. Just DH and me, and it was nice to have a quiet day. And yes it felt like Saturday all day. Not sure that yesterday felt like Sunday … since we weren’t at church. 😉

    I don’t like shopping at Wal-Mart on any day. 😉

  2. I just sat around and watched TV. In other words…didn’t do much at all. 🙂
