1. Are you currently making plans of any kind? What kind? What emotions are associated with the planning process? Tell us about one plan you had to cancel due to the current situation which shall remain nameless. Ha!

Talking about visiting Amber and Dylan in Montana. Maybe driving straight through because I don't want to go to a hotel. They have had only a few cases in the town of Great Falls and none right now.  It does however make me nervous.

Well we can't babysit for James like we had planned earlier in the year when Adam and Gabby go out of town in July.  

2. Last time you saw stars, either literally or figuratively?

I see stars in the sky most every night. 

3. Blueberries yay or nay? Blueberry pie, blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurt, blueberries by the handful...what's your pleasure?

I love blueberries. All of the above but usually I will put blueberries into my Fage yogurt. I really don't eat pie or muffins but Mark wanted a blueberry pie so I ordered one with our delivery from Sprout's recently and I did have a piece. I also like them by the handful which is how I usually eat them. 

4. Swim against the tide, swimming upstream, in the swim, sink or swim, makes your head swim...choose one of the 'swim' idioms listed and tell us how/why you relate?

I'm going with "makes your head swim" for all of the posts that are driving me crazy on Facebook. I'm still in favor of happy posts on Facebook like it use to be years ago. People's children, pets, and  the food your eating. It's been pretty annoying for about 4 years now! 

5. Sum up your June in a single sentence.

Full of birthday celebrations and anniversaries along with sadness because of Father's Day and my Dad's 97th birthday. 

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

TUESDAY 4

This week, let's talk about the Fourth of July......


Fourth of July

1. Do you think the 4th is an important holiday? Why, why not?

Yes I think we should celebrate. On July 4th 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. 

2. How do you celebrate? If you are not American, do you celebrate your nation's national holiday?

It depends. Sometimes we hang with our son or we do our own thing. We will usually grill something to eat. Because of our view we can usually see fireworks from several towns. 

This year we are going to our sons house for one of our social distancing visits. It will just be us with them. They will grill hamburger and hot dogs. 

This past Saturday we had a visit with them. We love seeing James even though we can't hold him. 



3. In the time of Laura Ingals Wilder,  all Americans read the Declaration of Independence every year on the 4th and lemonade was a big treat for the town picnic. Do you read the Declaration of Independence? Or, your nations important papers? How about lemonade? Are you a fan?

No, can't say we have ever done that. I was a big fan of lemonade for years. I now drink water with a splash of fresh lemon juice. 

4. Picnic, eat inside the house or eat out for the 4th?

Honestly we would normally eat in the house. This year we will be eating outside because we are social distancing. 

I only go into their house to use the restroom and I wear a mask. Outside we stay at least 10 to 12 feet away. We don't wear a mask so James can see our faces. He weirded out enough with Mark's beard! 

Side note: Every time we would see James before Covid-19 he would run up to Mark and want him to pick him up. I cry about this now because it was such a special bonding moment for them. Now James seems to pay more attention to me. Like I said he kind of stares at Mark because of his recent beard. Breaks my heart.
