Today is the 4th of July, and I had some thoughts. Here’s what I posted this morning: I’m putting on my patriotic jewelry, but I’m feeling kind of sad because all I ever want is to make sure we have as many people at the table as we can & it feels like so many people keep making the table smaller. For them it’s a little table in a gated community built on stolen land miles from the bus stop up a steep flight of stairs behind a locked door where you also have to know the password and have the “right” skin color. But I have little pockets of hope, so I’ll wear the dang jewelry.
I posted the photos from our road trip to Roan Mountain on Wednesday, so instead of those you get this. I finished reading this e-book (which, yes, I printed out), and I highly recommend it for people who are interested in getting a little more vocal about social justice in their social media lives. If you think this is you, let me know – I’ll point you in the right direction!
New color alert! Pumpkin, for average temps between 81 and 85.
Dr. M’s view from the office. Not too shabby!
Temperature blanket through June – I am sort of liking it these days.
Some early fireworks…
We went to a 100th birthday party for one of Dr. M’s relatives. It was such a nice day! It had been really hot, with occasional rain showers, earlier in the week, but the weather was beautiful & the temp was perfect. Plus they had a band! And cake, and homemade peach ice cream. It was a good day!
