We've got rain. Suppose to clear a bit by afternoon. Earl is going to move the Airstream out of it's shelter just in case. We are still go to go. Have fun VB in the city. Wish we could have something like that close. We are going to watch the fireworks next Sat over the Hudson.

Going to my brother's for supper at 4:30. We're all to bring our own meat to grill and a dish. I'm bringing mac n cheese corn casserole and a chocolate mousse pie, plus our chicken tenders and beer. Then, at 6 is the parade, and later on the fireworks!

Well, VB... gonna chill a bit. Then make some potato salad. Need to make a batch of chicken stock, so I will do that. Grate some cheddar cheese and store that. For dinner, I have a bone in grass fed rib-eye for hubby and I to share. And I see I have some basil ripe so may whip up some pesto.... not sure what else. Still mulling it over!

Happy 4th everyone! Be safe!!!

We will be having a barbeque at the deck tonight and perhaps watch the fireworks after. Tomorrow we will have an after-celebration with some neighbours.

I know the area well, TATT. I used to live at 21st and F, NW . Your view should be just about perfect. Have a great time.

Thanks, Katie!

I am NOT looking forward to the mass exodus out of the city...

Dog sitting for a friend and taking both the puppers down to my sisters house. Gonna take them to a huge enclosed dog park to let them run around and get super tired. Then back to hers for BBQ and chillin in the back yard. Then I'm gonna stay with the pups while my sis & brother in law go watch fireworks. My doggy freaks out so I stay with her and keep her company. :)

Happy 4th to everyone!

This will be the first time in a year that DH feels like cooking out, because of various medical problems. He's making a bone-in rib eye for us to share. We will have potato salad, corn on the cob, cucumber salad, baked beans with it.
For dessert, leftover chocolate cake and ice cream.

I just got back from a nice 5 hour bike ride through rural PA and Amish country. Very scenic with the rolling farmlands and mountains. People out sitting in lawn chairs chatting and watching time go by, or in this case me, as traffic was very light , playing badmiton at one house, croquet at the next. Seeing twenty cars parked in a big lawn knowing that a party was commencing. Saw a wild turkey up close and personal as he ran across the road in front of me. The only thing I missed that would have complimented this perfect day was nobody had their grill fired up. A little BBQ smoke in the air would have been nice. Had to make do with horse poop
I miss family picnics.

Give us this day our daily bacon.
