Plans for the Fourth

Not much is going on here at the moment. I was laid up yesterday with a bum knee and am going to be doing the same thing today. I expect to be well enough tomorrow to get back to our regular schedule. I can't believe that today is the last day of June. Where has the month gone? Tomorrow starts July and we are planning to honor the month of the Precious Blood with a prayer activity that comes from the heart of a friend down under.

And can I just say that I love being able to look through the archives of my blog to find those things that I said I wanted to remember. I found this post reminding me that I wanted to try Margaret's red, white and blue jigglers and have the Jell-O boxes ready to go. We are also getting ready for our traditional decorations: single snip stars, quiet fireworks, patriotic t-shirts, and of course... a berries and stars dessert. Although, if I can get back up and running soon, some of these ideas from the Crafty Crow might be too appealing to pass on.

Do you have any fun plans for this coming weekend?

  1. I'm sorry about your knee and hope you are feeling better today.

    We are getting together with family for a backyard BBQ and then heading out to see the city fireworks show. Nothing special except that I am making ambrosia salad and that is always a big even in our family. ;)

    Off topic - I went to Hobby Lobby this morning and found that VBS cross you posted about recently. The paint on our felt vestments is drying now and I'll post a few pics on my blog soon. It is a VERY modest attempt, but will add a lot of 'color' to our family shrine.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
