Happy 4th!

The Fourth of July.  A day celebrating independence.  Though the holiday traditional celebrates the independence of American from the British there are many other reasons to celebrate ones independence.  This day, this 5th day of July in which David and I had the day off, we celebrated our independence from the tyranny of landlords and freed ourselves from the oppression of a portion of our overgrown yard.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but you will notice a patch of dirt where no less than 4 different bushes once held root.  Hands are sore, muscles are tired and all in all it was a good day.

Aside from today's events though, the weekend was marvelous!  We spent Friday with friends and watched the fireworks.  Saturday brought friends for dinner.  Sunday a much needed breather from daily life complete with a walk around the neighborhood.  It has been a full weekend, but I'm still not ready to go back to work.
