Sunday Evening Relaxation.

What a lovely, lovely Independence Day celebration we had here at the lake.  I've been here since last Monday with just a quick trip to the vet for Chloe on Wednesday and church today.  Hubby trimmed, edged and mowed the grass today.  I trimmed some bushes and did a few loads of laundry, ironed and paid bills.  Then we were off to the lake!

Now I won't be home again until Wednesday afternoon.  Can you say spoiled?!  That's me!  Hubby has been here since Wednesday evening so it's been extra special to have that time together.  We've been swimming in the lake everyday.  The water is warm and oh so clear. You can see the bottom!

The park provided a great meal for all of the residents on the 4th.  We took side dishes, but they had hamburgers, hot dogs and desserts.  A live band played 60's, 70's and 80's songs and there was dancing on the basketball court. Afterwards there was a huge fireworks display set off in the middle of the lake.  In addition there were big displays by other residents around the lake.  It was amazing!  There was a boat parade that I caught a few pictures of on my other camera. I'll post those Thursday when I can load them on the computer.

Hubby brought my bike up this afternoon for me to ride to the beach during the week.  I could walk but I'm going to try the bike and see if the hills get me.  :-). I didn't ride it at home at all last year because I was here so we thought it may as well be where I am. It's an old-fashioned coaster bike Hubby bought me two years ago.  It has a removable basket I can take into the grocery store and shop with. So cute!

Can you see my toes?  It's a beautiful evening as I sit here browsing the net.  Lazy lady. That's me!
Now it's time for s'mores!!  Yum!

This is the day that The Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

    Yesterday our Pastor was talking about being in prayer every day. Sure would be easy to do it there, wouldn't it. Such beauty.
