It's the evening of July 2nd here, and my neighbors have been setting off some fireworks. Everyone gets excited about having fun for Independence Day on the Fourth of July. My husband has tomorrow and Tuesday off for the holiday, and he is taking vacation days for Thursday and Friday, so he has a one-day work week next week. We haven't planned anything special, but we did go out to dinner last night and had a nice meal. I am planning to go to a cookout on July 4 at my girlfriend's house, and may plan more things. The city has some fun events downtown, like a parade and concerts and fireworks, and all of those sound good.

I had a very nice pork chop in a sweet bourbon glaze. I never make pork chops at home, so it was a real treat. It was cooked perfectly!

They shoot fireworks off one of our local mountains here. We can walk out of our front door and see them perfectly. That's what we'll be doing.

Yes, we don't tend to travel for this holiday. We went to the beach once, but it's very expensive and crowded.

Happy Independence Day. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal. Since your husband is on holiday maybe you can plan such things again. Have fun today. Will you be lighting any fireworks

Thank you, we don't usually set off fireworks ourselves, although sometimes we go out to see them.
