Friday’s Freedom: Things start out as hopes and end up as habits.~Lillian Hellman

Happy National Apple Turnover Day, National Graham Cracker Day, National Bikini Day & Work-Aholics Day!

What do you call a cookie that takes pictures?~Insta-Graham!*What’s a graham cracker’s job in the beehive?~The Honey Maid!*Where does a waitress wear a bikini?~In a breastraunt!*What did the bikini top say to the sunhat?~You go on a head and I’ll give these 2 a lift!*How do you make an apple turnover?~Roll it!*What do you get when you chase an apple around the orchard?~Puff Pastry!

From every mountain side-Let Freedom ring.~Samuel F. Smith~~I think my first bikini, I was four and it was polka dotted and I had a big belly and I looked dashing.~Ashley Scott~~Confidence: It's the difference between the girl with the perfect body in a one-piece bathing suit, pulling at it and thinking she's not thin enough or doesn't have big enough boobs - and the girl who people call a bit overweight, but meanwhile, she's wearing a bikini and guys are saying, "God, she's sexy." It all has to do with how you feel about yourself - it's about projecting the attitude, I'm OK with who I am.~Jennifer Lopez~~Sexiness isn't being young, hot and wearing a bikini. It's being powerful and feeling like you belong in your skin and it feels good.~Unknown~~For a very long time now I've been saying to young women, 'You can have it all, but not all at the same time.' How important it is to take very good care of yourself, of your mental and physical and spiritual wellbeing; it's hard to do. It's easier to be a workaholic than to have a truly balanced life.~Quentin Bryce~~I used to be a classic workaholic, and after seeing how little work and career really mean when you reach the end of your life, I put a new emphasis on things I believe count more. These things include: family, friends, being part of a community, and appreciating the little joys of the average day.~Mitch Albom~~Happiness is life served up with a scoop of acceptance, a topping of tolerance and sprinkles of hope, although chocolate sprinkles also work.~Robert Brault

Saturday’s Sparkler: Good habits are as addictive as bad habits, and a lot more rewarding.~Harvey Mackay

Happy International Kissing Day, International Cherry Pit spitting Day & National Fried chicken Day!July is national Hot Dog Month, National Watermelon Month, National Baked Beans Month, National Picnic Month & national Blueberries Month!

What did the hen do when she saw the fried chicken?~She kicked the bucket!*Why did the rooster go to KFC?~To see a chicken strip!*How do you send fried chicken in the mail?~In a henvelope!*What do you need to eat a bucket of fried chicken?~Hendurance!*What day do chickens hate?~Fry-day!*How was the cherry pit spitting contest?~PIT-i-Full!

For you have been called to live in freedom. Use your freedom to serve one another in love.~Galatians 5:13~~One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe~~If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?~Erma Bombeck~~The best comfort food will always be greens, cornbread, and fried chicken.~Maya Angelou~~I think no matter what the occasion may be, you can never go wrong by showing up at the dinner table with a hot plate of fried chicken.~Paula Deen~~Life was just a tire swing. 'Jambalaya' was the only song I could sing. Blackberry pickin', eatin' fried chicken, And I never knew a thing about pain. Life was just a tire swing.~Jimmy Buffett~~Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.~Albert Einstein~~The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions - the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment.~Samuel Taylor Coleridge~~Kiss and make up-but too much makeup has ruined many a kiss.~Mae West~~I have found men who didn't know how to kiss. I've always found time to teach them.~Mae West~~There is no harder thing to give up than the thing that was supposed to make you happy.~Robert Brault

Howdy Spark Peeps! I think the celebrations are over for awhile and I hope so! I don't seem to get in any SP time when I'm enjoying BBQs and dinner parties!

Last night we went to my parents' former neighbor's home for a lovely dinner with the priest and the seminarian who is here. She invited 2 other couples and another neighbor as well and it was so good! It had it all.... good people, good food and great covnersation!

Today I had a killer long workout in the pool and it was great! When I went out to go to the pool it was like stepping into a warm sponge! It was soooo hot and soooo humid! But, the water felt great and I enjoyed myself!

I hope your weekend has been great so far!

*1* A lovely dinner with old friends!
*2* A pool to help me beat the heat!
*3* A garden full of fresh veggies! The tomatoes are really starting to come in now! We are enjoying quite the harvest! I ate a cherry tomato from this evening and it tasted like candy! It was oh-so-good!
*4* Sassy. The sweet thing won't swim, but she will lay in the shade and watch me. She is getting more attached to me and I can't lie..... I like it!
*5* Hubby. He said he likes his littler garden and I said his little garden really likes hhim! He really does have a green thumb!

Happy Weekend! Thanks for reading! t
