I hope everyone has a most enjoyable day with family and friends. It’s far too hot to barbecue here. After Memorial Day that’s usually out until fall rolls around. No one hangs around outside much in the triple digit heat. Who can blame them?
At least the store will be closed today so we’ll probably be cooking hamburgers indoors and watching fireworks later on once it cools off to the upper nineties. We can see them from our patio all around the horizon. I’m sure some crazy kids will climb the bluff out in the desert and set some off too like they do every year. I may even practice getting some more fireworks shots with my camera. I’m not good at it and the only other time to do it around here is for New Years and that’s way too cold for me.
Everyone knows how I delight in dressing up my cats for the holidays. The Fourth is no exception. Of course, Raven is the only one that tolerates me. Sometimes Tootie will, but Koki wants to get as far from me as possible if I try to put a hat on her.
I made my trip to the dollar store a couple of weeks ago to see what I could find that would be suitable material for a cat hat. How I wish they made something “cat size,” but since they don’t it’s always a challenge. However, I’m not one to back away from a creative challenge, so I put my thinking cap on and dive in.
I’m glad Raven doesn’t mind being my guinea pig.
Happy Fourth of July everyone. Be safe out there and remember why we celebrate this holiday.
