We had a wonderful weekend with family and friends... It included good food, fun swimming in the lake and paddling on the lake in kayaks...
...and of course I was able to get to a few rummage and yard sales... Here are a few patriotic red white and blue finds!
A Hotel silver teapot, a silver plate bowl and ...
a lovely silver pitcher...
We were all decked out in our patriotic colors for the annual parade and fireworks. Up here in this tiny Adirondack town, our Fourth of July parade is a big deal. Not only do we have the customary homemade floats, junior high school band and kazoo band, the Veterans, the fire engines and ambulance, horses and dogs, clowns and unicyclist .... ...our town proudly rolls out all the snow removal equipment and the snowmobile brigade... Candy is tossed out to all the children and there is much excitement and good cheer. This year the weather was perfect for all activities! We are so blessed!
I hope your weekend was safe and happy and full of fun with friends and family too! :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
