Life in the Slow Lane

I’m feeling lighthearted today. Not only because it’s a National Holiday and most folks aren’t working, but because I got some much needed sleep last night. It’s amazing how bright and sweet mornings are when you feel rested.

My Music Man and I have been hard at work these past couple of weeks. I’m not complaining, though. It’s kind of like harvest-time when the vines are ripe. You have to work day and night to get your fruit off the vine in order to reap the bounty of your toil and get some value out of the blood, sweat, and tears that you put into your business and your life.

Today is all about the red, white, and blue. I’d like to share some yummie patriotic munchies to celebrate our country’s birthday and hope that we have a few hundred more.

You can really enjoy watermelon even more on July 4th when it’s cut like stars. Put these in a cold fridge for a day or so and serve really cold!

My personal favorite – this is like a little spark of fireworks in your mouth!

Be honest…doesn’t this make you want to jump in and try a little taste?

And this little gem  is on my list of things to make out of our old barn wood….

Enjoy your freedom today. Remember we get to choose it every day.

About OnedrfuLife

I create to feed my passion. I'm a dreamer, a muse, a mother, a lover, a friend. I'll likely make myself available for an adventure, especially if travel is involved. My passions are many, but my heart is steeped in music. I'm not a musician myself but I consider music a form of worship. I also adore food but I'm not a chef. You'll usually find me in the background cheering and begging for more...the encore. Encores mean just a couple more tunes, or a second helping. Or maybe just dessert.
