Not a very imaginative title, I know, but I just wanted to send a quick ‘Hi!’ to all of my visitors from the United States, and wish you a Happy Independence Day. As I did for Canada’s 150th anniversary on Saturday, I wanted to create something special. I created (painted) a cake for Canada, so today I’m scattering stars for the States. It did start off as a cake, but none of the candles would fit, so it has ended up as something colorful ( <—see what I did there? Winking smile ) with stars and stripes.

From me, here, ‘across the pond’  in Britain, have a great day!

  2. My neighbors shot off a bunch of fireworks in the street last night for some reason. But yes, today is our Independence Day, or as many call it, Fourth of July. Hi back from the USA! 🙂

      1. Good question! 🙂

        I was 57 on Thursday, got one card of my mum and over a hundred birthday wishes on Facebook! 🙂

        My BFF Pat who has been such a big part in my life is currently unwell, so I delivered her present and made sure she was OK.

        We’ll celebrate our birthdays when she’s back on her feet, but this year has been surreal to put it mildly! :/

        God Bless my friend!!! 🙂
