The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. It’s got the great vibe of Christmas without the pressure of all that shopping. Well, this 4th of July we had just returned from Zambia and Laura was bed-ridden with a horrible, horrible allergic reaction to the malaria medicine. We’re talkin’ major hives and swelling. It was bad news, and definitely nixed any plans we may have had for enjoying good company and a killer fireworks display.
I had completely forgotten about it until a few weekends ago. We spent Friday night and Saturday in College Station watching the Aggies open up their season with a win over The Citadel. Sunday, after the last service of the evening we took off to Paul & Betty’s lake house on Lake Cypress Springs. We both had Labor Day off and were looking forward to spending a lazy day reading in a hammock or riding bikes.
But, when I walked out of the bedroom bright and early Monday morning, I found that Laura and Betty had done the living room up 4th of July style! What a great surprise!
Foozin’ it up…
