As this Monday rolls around I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic week. The weather has been quite comfortable here since the humidity broke on Saturday, but, alas, it will be back tomorrow. I could deal with the summer if there wasn't so much humidity. I abhor that sticky feeling and the heaviness of the air. I do have so problems with my breathing when it is hot and humid, but I believe that's all about the extra weight I carry around. Hubby is the one I worry about. He's been having a hard time.
How was your holiday. I had a wonderful July 4th. We'd planned on just hanging about doing nothing until an ex-co-worker of hubby's called to invite us over for the fireworks. At first both of us were reluctant; it was so darn humid out there, but eventually we agreed. So glad we did. Turned out to be a once in a lifetime event for me.
They had a lovely apartment with a terrace and a fantastic view of the festivities....
Sure wish I lived there. I can just imagine having my morning coffee on the terrace watching the sunrise or standing out there and watching a beautiful sunset. We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and ate all types of salads. They even had shrimp which hubby thoroughly enjoyed. After eating, they put music on, and I actually danced. Well, to be honest, I didn't quite make it through half the song (my legs felt so heavy), but I would rest and go back and try again. The dancing invigorated me and made me feel good about myself. I made a decision right there and then to do a little dancing every day. Hopefully, I will lose some weight and it will strengthen the muscles in my legs. Maybe, just maybe, I won't even need my cane anymore.
Later, our hosts put on a CD of some of my favorite patriotic songs, and we all headed to the terrace to watch the show. Here are a few of the better of the photos I took.
The good old Brooklyn Bridge. Such a history. Every time I see it I think of that movie, 'Kate and Leopold' with Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman. Totally love that movie.
Well, that's about it. Hoping you all have a good one.
