I’ve always preferred to have a quiet 4th of July. I don’t go to parties or gather with family. Because I absolutely hate fireworks. Well, primarily the noise they make.
It has been quiet here today. Thank goodness. Fireworks get the dogs all worked up. But then there’s tonight for the real deal, so we’ll see how they handle that.
Why I avoid the evening news:
I don’t much listen to the news anymore. I use to have it on the TV while I did my yoga stretching at night, but I found that it didn’t relax me very much!
There’s been a serial rapist who has been raping older women in quick succession. Seven women in 25 days.
The man who they think is behind all this is 30 years old, and just got out of prison in April. He didn’t make it long out here with innocent folks, did he?
When a rapist faces karma:
Last Sunday his vehicle hit a light pole at a considerable speed. He’s in a coma. They think he fell asleep at the wheel. A sexual assault had just been reported.
He served six years of a ten year sentence. Presumably let out for good behavior.
Karma. As I’m always saying, it’s a real bitch. And sometimes it gets you sooner rather than later. Enough said.
Driftwood on my patio:
Take a look at the tiny bit of golden pennies that is growing out the side of the big piece of driftwood. Now that’s a real tough little plant.
It has filled out the hollow of the wood nicely, and now it’s attempting to work itself through the cracks and crevices!
Surviving & Thriving:
Sometimes life is real tough. Those that survive and thrive are the ones that can wind their way and find a little opening when it seems all doors are closed. That’s creative thinking in adverse conditions. I admire that.
For those of you getting ready to go see the fireworks, you’d better have some iced water handy. For those of you who prefer to stay in like me, I hope your air conditioning is working properly.
See you tomorrow.
