Anyhow, I decided as of the evening of July 3rd I was going to go and get my Mom so that she could celebrate the 4th of July with the kids and I. She stayed the nights of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th with us and we had a great time with her here (from going out and having lunch and shopping to playing games such as cards and, yes, even the 4th of July was fun, even though I wish my husband could have joined us).
Okay, the Fourth of July consisted of...
My breakfast: Apple Butter toast, from a local Amish store, I really like Apple Butter, and I really like a lot of the Amish food, but I was surprisingly not really that crazy about this Apple Butter.
And....after it got dark: ....Fireworks!
I am happy to say, however, my husband is back in our home area! While he is still working storm damage, power outages have increased in number in our area (although we are blessed at this time to still have power and it is a bummer that some do not have power), so they called my husband to return to our home area to finish the power restoration efforts and then hopefully he will be able to enjoy some of the upcoming week's vacation with us.
