America, #1006


Happy day after 4th of July, blog friends! I hope you all had the best holiday ever.  My family and I spent the holiday with good friends, good food, good music, and good fireworks.  It was the perfect evening in Tucson…cool after a big storm.  The kids swam in the pool, and the parents chatted.  So nice!

Here’s the best part, too.  Don’t y’all love it when the 4th of July falls on a Friday so then you have a long weekend afterwards?  Oh – -this is just the best!  We didn’t go anywhere, but we really feel like we’re on vacation!

It’s not like we have huge plans today, but we’re just feeling good that we get to spend some good quality time together.

So….wishing you all the best day-after-the-holiday, too.  Today, it’s so good to be American!

My song of the day was on our friends’ 4th of July playlist last night.  Neil Diamond’s “America” never gets old.  Enjoy the song and your lovely long weekend, too!


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
