Not Scared in Lighting Fireworks

We celebrated the Independence Day at our house in Nevada because Fort Worth does not allow shooting fireworks in such occasion. I was told that some places in Texas does not allow this activity. As what I mentioned in my previous post, my in-laws came over but did not stayed overnight. So my husband and I were the only ones who made the night away. Sharing with you here are pictures taken on the 4th of July.
I am not scared at all in lighting the sky rocket.

The sparks in the dark.

Heard The Coffee News Lately?

We just enjoy cooking and watching movies on television while having a cup of coffee on weekends. Yes, this is one of our ways to relax. Nothing compares to a good cup of coffee! And speaking of it, I remembered hearing the news a couple of days ago that a Starbucks will be closing 600 of its stores here in the USA. Huh? I can’t believe it. I am one of the avid customers of this popular coffee shop and it seems odd to me.
Two of my personal favorites here are the café latte and green tea.

However, the news said Starbucks management has not mentioned yet which store locations will be closed. I just hope that Starbucks here in our area will not be one of them.
