WOW! July Plans and 4th Recap

Join us at
1. July is National Anti-Boredom Month. When was the last time you were bored? What's your go-to cure for boredom?

I really don't get bored unless I'm having to wait in a line.  My go-to cure is my Iphone.

2. What's the last thing you made a reservation for?

A hotel at Niagara Falls, Ontario

3. What's one thing on your summer 'bucket list'? Any plans to make it happen?

My summer bucket list is already about as full as it can get with trips.  But the one thing that we haven't been able to schedule yet is having our youngest grandchild for a week or a few days before school starts.  She has never come by herself before so we are all excited about the possibility.  Between vacations and camps it hasn't been easy, but we are all trying.

4. What's your favorite summertime sip?

Either lemonade or sweet tea.

5. What do you find is the best way to handle another person's hostility and hopefully ease the tension?

My immediate response is withdrawal.  I'm not sure this is always the best way to deal with it, but it is what I do.

6. Your favorite film set in summer?
Steel Magnolias?

7. What word are you using too much lately?

"Wow!"  I catch myself saying this much too often and I'm not sure why I'm doing it.  I guess, because I'm at a loss of what else to say, but it's going to go bye-bye.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Last Friday, we joined our son and his family for a 4th celebration with our Daughter-in-Love's dad and her sisters and their families.  We had such a good relaxing time and the food was delicious.  It is so much fun to watch all the cousins interact because they are so close.  I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the fun for your self.

How many does it take to get one girl out of a tree?

Such a pretty girl!

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. Love the LOVE picture : ) The Ontario side of Niagara is supposed to be charming. I haven't been, but it's on my list too. Hubs and I may try for a weekend this fall if we can find an empty space on the calendar.

  2. What a cute idea for the LOVE picture! I have to say: the one of the boys looks like maybe they couldn't make it into the house to use the bathroom! ;) Looks like y'all had a wonderful time!

  3. Great pictures-especially the LOVE!

  4. Well I was going to say what the rest of them already said, lol, LOVE the LOVE picture! So cute. Beautiful sunset too!
