I almost totally forgot about this blog post due today. Almost. If someone else hadn't posted that they'd forgotten theirs, I would have gone merrily about my day, unaware and unrepentant.
Yesterday was the 4th of July. Independence Day here in the USA. This holiday brings back so many memories. Of being a kid, of taking my own child to displays. Of visiting my dad in Boulder and eating horribly burnt bratwurst that he'd grilled. One year we stayed in a cabin in Cuchara, CO and they had an awesome parade and display. One year at our lake place, someone invested a small fortune in fireworks and made a beautiful display over the lake. Another year there, the residents of our community had a golf cart parade. So much fun.
Lately, we tend to stay home and cook out and swim. A small group. Still fun. Our neighborhood is older and the fireworks weren't as bad. My dogs weren't scared at all.
I didn't write yesterday, though I'll be back at it today. I'm also learning Photoshop so I can make book covers (I got the rights back to 11 older Harlequin books!)
Enjoy your summer. I hope you're reading too! I'm going to redesign the cover for this one, but it's up for sale on Amazon. It won the Romantic Times Best Silhouette Intimate Moments in 2005
