Sue and Luke head to church, while I make way for my morning run.
I decide the run into town, and down towards the church.
This day in history "On this day in 1776, the Continental Congress formally declares the name of the new nation to be the "United States" of America. This replaced the term "United Colonies," which had been in general use.
In the Congressional declaration dated September 9, 1776, the delegates wrote, "That in all continental commissions, and other instruments, where, heretofore, the words 'United Colonies' have been used, the stile be altered for the future to the "United States.""
You learn something new everyday.
While on my run, a little past the church, I get stung in the back of my head. I swear and instinctively run my hand thru my hair just in case the offending insect is still in there. The pain, burning are something I recall from past stings.
I keep running and soon forget about the bee or wasp. At the end of the run, 8 miles, I am greeted by Sue and Luke as I sip water in the porch. Luke and Sue check my head for a stinger....there is none.
Sue's brother Danny, Angel, Anika, and Saskia come over for an afternoon visit and a swim in the pool. We fire up the grill and eat before Kyle makes his way to soccer pasta dinner. A quick dip in the pool for some, and the rest of us are content in the hotub.
As usual, a fun time is had. Angel and I make dessert. Home made shortcake buscuits, with peaches and cream. Who knew such a simple dessert would be such a big hit.
