Medical Hiatus and Independence Day

Hello friends!

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  My apologies for not blogging before now, it’s been a heck of a time these last few months.  I had a surgery that took a good while to recover from. I was put on oxygen for the first couple weeks while at home.  I wound up with a strained muscle in my abdomen which caused excruciating pain whenever I moved. Literally. *sigh*

Thankfully that’s over and done with now, and I’ve been feeling great!  I’m back into the swing of photography again - woo hoo! I was bummed out to have such a hiatus.

We also celebrated Independence Day recently.  My family had a great time lunching with the in-laws, and watching fireworks at some soccer fields down the street from my mom’s house.  I’m sure a lot of you saw the lightning show that went on. It was everywhere! So we’re down at the fields waiting for the fireworks to start, and some big raindrops started… and we um, forgot to bring an umbrella.  The rain stopped so we stayed… the fireworks started and we started getting rain again. Large wet drops, cold and uncomfortable began falling on us again. My husband and daughter bailed. My son and I stayed and held out through the soppy weather.  My mom and brother backed out early after that, leaving my son and a couple friends of mine. We stayed and watched, when all of a sudden the fireworks stopped with no finale. *ugh* So we trudged back home (of course the rain had stopped again!), and we had some dessert and called it a night.

I found out later that the finale didn’t happen because the weather messed up the equipment.  Darnit!
