It's Independence Day in the USA.
We hope you all have some fun activities planned for the long holiday weekend.
My hubby and I are planning to grill-out and have a backyard picnic, as long as the weather cooperates. This is Florida after all, and the weather changes minute by minute, or so it sometimes seems.
After a day of fun and delicious food, I plan to spend the late afternoon enjoying the company of a good book.
How about you? What are you reading this weekend?
