I had a wonderful 4th of July with my hubby and brother - we did not go canoeing, but we went to see fireworks in Algonac - If you missed fireworks or have not seen fireworks in a long time - here is a few pics I took.

Don and I worked in our yard on the 4th of July - I weedwacked for two hours! I burned a lot of calories that day!

The 5th we went to Algonac and boy did I get my walking in! We parked about two blocks from where we decided to set our seats and for the next two hours we walked around the Pickeral Tournament. We took a tour of the antique/trading shop, walked along the water too, and just enjoyed the scenery, people, and the fireworks.

Saturday I was so exhausted - Don and I did nothing! I went to bed at 8:30 and slept almost 12 hours!

Yesterday we went to Ana's 9th birthday party - she looked so cute on her birthday! Mustache and all.... the girls were playing dress up for a bit!

Today I worked on stuff for dad's care for almost 7 hours! I thought it got easier when they had full time care in a facility! HAH! I feel ran over and bulldozed! I woke up to two phone calls - from both of his caseworkers! He is raising HECK up at the home and I was asked if it was viable for him to go home?! Oh my!

Tomorrow I am going to take care of ME! I am going to start my day out with a bottle of water and a workout!

At any rate, I ate healthy stuff over the holiday weekend, but the fire snacks got me! I stopped snacking on carbs at night - a bad habit to break! We had a wonderful fire one night and I had a snack or two...
I gained two pounds - but I am sure I will lose it once again...

Onward and forward!

    Wonderful! Always loved Algonac. I was at the San Diego State Fair last week and they were selling Machinac Island fudge - and everyone was saying match-in-nac. Ouch, that hurt my ears. So, I explained it was pronounced Mack-in-awe and they thought I was out of my mind. Had to explain the whole Indian meets French history.

    So, why do we say Al-ghen-ack instead of Al-ghen-awe? Things to ponder...

    Sounds like you had a great weekend. I gained weight too. Don't fret, the weight will come right back off. Take care :)
