Happy 4th of July 2015

Smiling Sally's Blue Monday Meme

I am not a big fan of all the noise around our neighborhood
during the month before or during 4th of July weekend but
I do enjoy 4th of July parties and legal firework displays!
St. Louis has some of the best of those in my
I decorated my mantel with a few patriotic things this week.
I got all of it on sale at Kohl's or Michael's.
We got a slow start decorating this month but oh well. I have
been spending a lot of time with my Mom since she
lost my Dad a few weeks ago. So much paperwork, it is mind
boggling. Luckily one of my sister's is retired and has been doing
a lot of the calls and paperwork. 
What are you doing to celebrate the 4th of July this year?

I found this pretty Waterford Crystal Clock at 
an auction and the lamp at an estate sale.
I love the scent of this new glade endless color "tranquil" scented candle.
If you use your cartwheel Target app you can get 25% off one this week
and if you can score a coupon you can even save more! I love
lighting candles at night while I read or when I am watching TV.

My Daddy

Smiling Sally's Blue Monday Meme

I have sad news to report. My Dad passed away peacefully at home
on 6/6.
We were with him and I was so proud of how our whole family
handled his care since he was sent home from the hospital
on 1/7. Someone was with my Mom around the clock helping to care of him.
 If you have elderly parents please spend a lot of time
with them. I will miss him horribly but know he is in a better
place and breathing easily.  I know he is with his older sister
and Parents along with my Mom's,  Parents in Heaven.  Two of my sisters
have said they have already received signs from him.  Later
when I have more time I am going to scan some of the older
photos I have of him. He looked so awesome in his Coast
Guard uniform! 
Here a copy of what was written on his webpage at the funeral home.
