July Friendship flower

Wow can you believe that July is here?? In Canada most children just finished school and are on a 2 month break from school. We also start the month off by celebrating Canada Day on July 1st. Our american neighbors also begin the month off with some patriotic celebrations on July 4th . My children begin their trips to summer camps and we will be taking a family holiday for 2 weeks this month. Our local community gets ready for the local fair that will be 150 years old this year......lots of neat things happening then.

So what are your plans for the month???????

Hugs Debbie

Happy Canada Day to our Canadian sisters.
July will be busy, I have given up waiting for things to slow down so I will have to just get used to the business ongoing.

Debbie and Theresa, HAPPY CANADA DAY!

We have an invitation for July 4 from friends who live in a nearby town full of Victorian homes. They have an old-fashioned parade down a street of historic houses near the Delaware River. I love parades--can't wait! Afterwards, we'll have homemade Chinese food for lunch at our friends' house.

Margaret, answering something you said on What's for Dinner in June--I have tried baseball. My mom is the World's Biggest Yankees fan, taking the title over from her grandfather! I grew up watching baseball. It's just too slow-moving for me. I like basketball much better.

Barb, I have to agree about the baseball. My Mom was a big Detroit Tigers fan and watched or listened all the time. I even went to an opening day once with friends (brrrrrrr, cold). I never watched much basketball until a few years ago with my husband, and I'll have to agree, basketball is much more compelling to me.

We don't have any real holiday plans here -- I went to Lowe's yesterday and bought paint to paint the garage, so maybe that will at least get started . . .
