starting to rev up for the fourth.  we are having some family over.  I spent a bit of today deadheading flowers.  I like my gardens looking good.  I am making trifle for dessert for the fourth.  delish.  Sunday, the 6th, is my hubs and my anniversary--23 yrs. 

 I am up much later tonight because my 17 yr old went to her first concert and she drove.  UGH not a fan of being up late.  6 am is going to come much earlier for me in the morning.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Sounds like fun! What kind of flowers have you got?
Oh, that dessert sounds tasty!
Nice to hear your plans for the 4th! Thanks for sharing your positivity and a nice anniversary, too! :happy0151:

redapples---  i grow a bunch of  perennials.  There are:  hostas, astilbe, coral bells, grecian rose, red hot poker, coreopsis, daylilies, lavender, asiatic lilies, painted daisy, iris, shasta daisy, cone flowers, Black-eyed Susan, blue fescue, clematis, sages, oreganoes, yarrow, bleeding heart, sea holly, peony, lamb's ear and pinks.  I have butterfly bush and roses, plus numerous annuals.   my yard is full of color   :yes:


And, WOW, my 17yr old didn't get home until 1:10am.  6 am came freakishly early today.  I've gotten my eldest on the bus to go to her dayhab.  Since we are having family coming tomorrow, I have a good bit to do today.  But there is definitely going to be a nap.

 :banana: Tommorow I'm going to light off lots of fire works and have a wonderful barbeque with my relatives (cousins, etc.) In general the 4th of July is am anxiety free day because I get to light off fireworks and fuse some of them together so it will be more fun for me and my relatives.  :party0006:

Well today actually IS my birthday, so I'm going to do the least amount of work I can get by with. That doesn't mean I'm sitting around on my rump though; I started some ribs in the slow cooker and will finish them on the grill this afternoon. A few friends are coming over for a cookout; we'll have the aforementioned ribs, some brats and franks, and some burgers, plus whatever people end up bringing. Lots of cold beverages and so forth. I probably should mow the lawn, but I'm not terribly motivated to do it on my birthday. I think I'll leave it be, and if anyone complains I'll show them where the mower is and tell them to have at it!

 :( I should have taken my own advice and not mowed the lawn. I twisted my ankle mowing the lawn and felt it pop. Now it's really swollen and very stiff and hurts to put pressure on it. I'll be spending most of the day sitting down apparently, so at least it's a good excuse not to do any more work today...
