Independence Day is memories of sitting on a blanket at the city park with family watching the sky light up in streams of brilliant color. Big ice cream cones and cool watermelon.
But this year it was a little different for me. I spent the morning at the pool with a good friend and her grandson. Then my asthma overtook me and I had to spend the rest of the day indoors. Darn air quality this time of year. But luckily I live right on the river, so the view is beautiful. I grilled a burger on my little George Foreman grill, drank some pink lemonade and watched a great movie with Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum as they saved the earth from yet another alien invasion.
