Happy 4th of July! And Word Count Wednesday

It's the 4th of July!  Hooray!  My entire family will be home today for a barbeque.  It makes me so grateful to live in a country where we can gather any time we want, with plenty of food, can have any discussion we want, and have the freedom and responsibility of citizenship in this wonderful country.  I heard a speech given by John Wayne and he talked about the million reasons he loves the USA.  I think I could count a million, too.  How are you celebrating today?

Well, I probably shouldn't admit this, but after an early neighborhood pancake breakfast, I looked over the edits my critique group gave me last night.  I need a Urim and Thummim for one of them, but I am excited about some of the suggested changes.  I may or may not work a bit before the family all gets here.  I'm on a roll this week since I got so much done on my work in progress. I'm feeling really confident in my direction.  I added over 4000 words and am right on track for this week.  How did you do this week?

One of the Wards in our Stake invited my Ward to join them for their 4th of July breakfast, after our building burned down last week. It was nice to start the Morning with friends, the Pledge of Allegace and singing the Star Spangled Banner.
That will probably be all I do to celebrate. It is cool and rainy in Phoenix, so maybe a good book?

Happy 4th of July!

I'm spending it alone. Sigh... My husband has to go to girls camp and do his duty. Why they scheduled camp during the 4th of July, I'll never understand.

Oh, and I only wrote about 10K this past week. I thought I'd do better--drat that editor in me!
