happy 4th

Seeing as its raining today, looks like we'll just be hanging out around the house all day. No work. No play. Just chill. (Though I may work on my book cover. More on that later). We did celebrate yesterday, so I think our patriotic duty has been fulfilled.

Hubs grilled: country style pork ribs, turkey sausage, corn on the cob, acorn squash (fresh from the garden), and potatoes and onions. We celebrated by watching Dexter and eating chocolate peanut butter brownies. Didn't shoot fireworks, but we could hear the show going on at the nearby lake as well as the many firecrackers going off around the neighborhood.

So what are/were your plans to celebrate America's independence?


  1. We kind of did our celebrating over the weekend as well. Got together with family and watched the fireworks on a boat over the lake. Always beautiful. But we may get together with friends and see fireworks today as well.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your cover. Enjoy today!

  2. When I lived with my parents, we watched fireworks out on a lake, too. If my husband had a boat, we probably would have done that this weekend. :)
