How can it already be the Fourth of July? Well, it is and I had very little to do with it arriving so soon in the year. As you might guess, I wasn’t quite ready so I had to doctor the photos I used today to make them patriotic. I had to employ a little imagination. I hope you will too.
First we have photos of a trip we made to the cupcake shop. The moratorium on going had passed so we ventured out in the extreme heat. Imagine it was cool and not 103°F (39°C).
As you can see, Sebastian came along – smart bear that he is. Apparently, he’s decided to be the official taste tester for anything and everything that looks delicious.
Next up – a couple of photos of the most recent bear I have nearly completed. I say nearly because he is still without adornment and finishing details.
All except the flag he holds which is just a figment of my imagination.
I thought I would include this photo of Atalaya that I took when we were at the beach because when I was a little girl it was the closest thing to a castle that I had ever seen. I could wander around inside and outside dreaming I was royalty. Royalty without windows, doors, furniture, running water, air conditioning and a whole host of other things, but imagination is a powerful thing.
Speaking of imagination, my son shared this image that I wanted to pass along too. Someone with a great imagination designed this poster for the Paddington movie that supposedly comes out not in 2012 or 2013, but 2014. Still, it is a sweet image isn’t it?
Finally, I want to wish all of you celebrating the Fourth a safe and happy holiday. And if you don’t celebrate the Fourth, you could pretend - you know - use your imagination and have a amazing day. Eat a cupcake! Watch some fireworks!
Oh, yeah. I changed my blog header – seeing as how it has been a couple of years. Let’s classify my delay under the heading of “The Art of Waiting”.
