      1. Hi my dear! Happy monday to you! 😀
        I am feeling better today. Still busy but boss was not able to scream at me today bec she’s sick. But she still said I did something wrong but.. I just let it go. ❤
        How about you? 🙂 It's happy 4th July to you, dear! ❤


      2. Oh I’m so bad–I actually laughed with glee that the boss is too sick to scream at you!!! Happy Monday–I’m praying for you to have a mega-blessed week!!! And yes, it’s July 4th for us…but I’m sad that it’s so cloudy we may not be able to see the beautiful fireworks show…I can hear the “booms”, but want the pretty starbursts. Oh well, that’s life 🙂

      3. Hahahahaha–you’re so cute, and I hope they listen!!! The “booms” in the neighborhood are starting to get to me…but the televised program will start in 20 minutes, so I’m hopeful of seeing starbursts over the water!
