For corner view this week,
we are to tell five things about us.
For other views from around the world,
please go to Francesca's Fuoriborgo.
1. The 4th of July is my favorite holiday.
I love sitting on our boat,
anchored next to my son's boat,
watching the fireworks,
and watching the grandkids watch the fireworks.
Then we get them in our boat
and take them to our campground trailer
where they spend the night.
We have a cook out too with red, white,
and blue plates and napkins.
2. The grandkids love taking baths
at my house.
I have bath foam that I repeatedly
spray into their hands
and simple containers from my kitchen.
I allow them to sit and play for a long time.
3. I love all kinds of jewelry,
but especially that which has been my mother's and grandmothers'.
I'm known at school for my long, funky earrings.
The girls are always checking out what I have on today.
That goes for my pins also.
One teacher calls me "The pin lady,"
although I now wear necklaces as much, if not more,
These are just the ones on display.
The ones on the left are kept out all year.
The ones on the right are seasonal.
4. I collect 'posy' vases
and plant flowers that lend themselves to cutting
and displaying in the small vases.
I place them throughout the house.
5. I love porch swings and have two:
one in back on the patio
and one on the front porch.
