Happy Fourth!

At the Embassy’s celebration

John and I were at the Embassy’s Fourth of July celebration Tuesday night at the Ambassador’s Residence – another really big event. Happy 4th!

We were at home on the actual 4th for the holiday – unfortunately, I’ve picked up a cold — but I’ve gotten a lot of reading done between the holiday and the weekend: finished “Entitled,” by Kate Manne; “Madhouse at the End of the World,” by Julian Sanction; and “Generations: The Real Differences Between Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, Boomers, and Silents – and What They Mean for America’s Future” (a really long title!) by Jean Twenge. I especially enjoyed “Madhouse,” the story of a Belgian expedition to Antarctica in the late 1800s. John and I started Season 3 of “The Bear,” and are enjoying “A Man in Full” while we wait for the next episode of “Presumed Innocent.”

Here are a few more photos from the party:
