Happy Upcoming Fourth

I took this photo yesterday of our new fawn. Every afternoon he races back and forth across the backyard, driving his poor mama crazy. She just can't keep up with him.

In the background view across the water on the right lies the Coeur d'Alene Resort. The town's fireworks are set off from barges parked a short distance from the resort docks. We have a great built-in view of the fireworks from our deck.

So far I hear about 25 are coming for the BBQ here on the fourth. Which means probably more like 35. I never know, really. The kids invite kids who invite kids. Our house has become the hang-out place for July fourth. Quite a few overnight guests too. All five bedrooms full, blow-up beds full, and perhaps a tent to boot. Lots of fun. And I need the break. I've been writing without a day off for quite a few weeks now.

I'll be taking a break from blogging also and will return next week.

Blessings, all, on this holiday weekend. Thank God for your freedom!

What a view! Sigh. And the fawn is beautiful. He'll be losing his spots soon.

Happy 4th!

Happy Independence Day! The view is gorgeous. As is the sweet baby fawn, acting like a typical youngster. :)
