I decorated my mantel for the 4th of July, though I mainly just added to what I already had up there that I recently showed you.
I left the neutral decor and added a few key red, white, and blue elements to commemorate the holiday.
Last year I ordered the July 4th decor from two Etsy shops. I was just weeks out from ankle surgery at the time.
I don’t decorate much for holidays other than the fall season and Christmas. Sometimes I will add a Thanksgiving tablescape, and an Easter or Valentine’s Day vignette.
This is just a simple nod to the patriotic colors of the red, white, and blue.
My 4th Of July Mantel:
The mantel is a nice place to decorate as it’s out of the way. When I decorate table surfaces, Ivy can always jump up and knock things down.
I think she’s maybe jumped up to the mantel from the chair once or twice.
As you already know, my Ivy is a big girl. You wouldn’t think that she eats diet food, but she does. She’s just got a lot of curves, is what I always say!
When Ivy stretches out like this, she’s close to three feet long. She likes to lie there behind my recliner and sleep.
Still Not Feeling Up To Par:
I’m still not feeling well. I suppose some of it is the heat. This has been occurring off and on for three weeks.
I have an appointment this afternoon for a Medicare check visit. I took that opening when I looked at My Chart online and saw that it was available.
Steve went to Walgreens and bought a couple of containers of Pedialyte for me Sunday. I’ve mostly been sipping that.
Apparently a woman had just left that Walgreens who purchased over $2000 of their Pedialyte. Or that’s what the store employee told him.
So there wasn’t much left to buy.
I haven’t felt like doing a whole lot. I’ve mostly been sitting or lying on the couch and watching gardening and decorating videos on YouTube. I listed the videos I most like to watch in this post.
It’s supposed to be 107 degrees tomorrow, 106 on Thursday, and 102 on Friday. There is a severe weather warning today with damaging winds and hail possible.
That’s all we need right now.
