Happy 4th of July


I hope everyone enjoyed their day off.  I had another great day.  I got to sleep late and then we went to my Jim's mom's house on Long Island where we had a nice meal in her backyard which is all abloom with gorgeous flowers and veggies and she even has a coy pond.  It was just brutally hot which made it difficult to enjoy being outside but it was very nice to see her.

On the way home Jim made a surprise detour to take me to Joann's where I picked up 13 new DCWV stacks!  Whoo hoo!  They were on sale at 40% off but what was even better was 5 of them were on clearance at $7.97.  I went there with just getting the 4 new ones in mind but before I knew it, Jim had more stacks in the cart that he found at another display in the store.  I had to take out a whole bunch because I already had them but he didn't know that.  I tell you, he can be an enabler like nobody's business.  When we went to checkout Jim had the cashier laughing so she scanned a coupon which gave us another $22.04 off.   According to my receipt I saved $90.84 today.  Sometimes the goofball comes in handy! 

I love the new stacks DCWV came out with.  The Stardust stack is simply beautiful and I got the last one they had in stock.  We came home and I put my new stacks in my cubes which are now full.  I'm officially out of room unless I start getting rid of furniture.  Geez, I wonder if anyone would notice if my sectional couch was missing a section? Hmmmm....something to think about.  LOL

 My paper cubes.

Around 9 pm tonight we went up the block near the college and lit up some sparkly fireworks.  Our friend, Tom, and his dd joined us for the display.  It was still 94 degrees out at that time. 

Here we have Jim saying "I have created fire!!"  Tom Hanks has got nothing on him.

My boys just itching to blow stuff up.

I played with the night setting on my camera and this is one of the shots I got. 

It was a really nice day but it's back to work tomorrow so off to bed I go.  I hope you all had a safe and happy 4th of July.

Thank you for sharing your awesome post!! It sounds like you had a great 4th of July....the pics are great, too!! 'So sorry about the heat, though.

Serene, your visit to JoAnn was amazing!! I hope you enjoy every one of your stacks. DCWV really knows how to make beautiful paper.

Oh, I love your cubes for storage; hmmm-making more room for your goodies sounds like a good idea to me, wink!!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment, too!!

Hi Serene, so glad to see you had a great 4th. WOW your cubes look great, I too love that system.
Your son is so big, I miss my nephew that just moved to Alabama, but I know I'll see him soon.
