Independence Day … perfect timing, I guess for a gal that just became “liberated” from her career. It still hasn’t sunk in. I’m still thinking like an employee. Yesterday afternoon, as I made fruit pizza for a get-together with friends, I told myself, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my day off!” Then I remembered, it wasn’t a paid holiday – and I don’t have to return to the office today. I also could celebrate with friends instead of working at the 4th of July festivities. Friends are always a good thing. 4th of July festivities are good, too, especially for our town of Shelbyville. The Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce does a fantastic job organizing the fireworks event, which brings many people to our town. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into the planning, organizing and work at such a big event for the community as previously, I have assisted with those endeavors. This year, it was nice to have the evening free to celebrate.
But first, we worked, pig-farmer and I. We also got a nap. Then, we worked some more. My boys were in and out, busy with their own activities. The oldest was able to join our evening dinner with friends before he had to work the fireworks event for the Corps of Engineers.
Pig-farmer and his assistants:
Slowly but surely, we are getting the old, delapidated fence out in preparation for the new!
I am thankful for our freedoms!!
