So we stayed at home.Ι decorated with what reminds us of the celebration.
I put the beautiful embroidery Marabeth had sent me on my big table.
We enjoyed a night out with the Drama club friends.
We had fun walking Barca on the sea front twice with the sun and the wind blowing.
She met with Luna, the neighbour's dog, and other dogs,too.
Spotted a left over kite tail hanging from the street light.
It was fun watching the people going up and down the sea front in the sun.
And on the big Independence Day we went to watch the parade where we used to go for the last 40 years. But the new strict police measures made us walk far from home as people were not allowed to reach the parade near where the politicians and VIPs were. I was so disappointed.
The weather was cold and overcast and didn't change my mood. I was angry. Not to be allowed to go where I used to go to attend the parade for 40 years really made me so sad and angry.
I only managed to see very little of the parade.
And afterwards we had lunch at my brother's with all the traditional food of the day, fried cod and garlic sauce.
