Summer has begun and it's time to take stock in what we already have and what we might need in creating a summer project. But for just a moment, let's remember Betsy Ross, whom popular legend says made the first American flag. And now, move many years forward to celebrating what that flag stands for and the many ways Independence Day, or the Fourth of July, has come to signify the start of summer.
The skies are usually clear and the air is sweet. Sitting outside is preferable to lounging by the fireplace these days and a selection of lawn furniture makes this desire a reality. Add a hammock to the mix and a beautiful summer scene is born.
|Hurray for summer!|

Ah, but don't forget the food. Whatever you want and in whatever quantities. Some franks, burgers, a good pie. It's your choice.

After day is done, pull up a well-cushioned place to sit down and just relax!
We hope to see you soon!
