We're enjoying a relaxing 4th. I hope you are too.
Our friends Carrie and Matt made a pit stop at our place last night on their way up to their family's lakehouse.
We enjoyed a lakeside grill with steak from a local butcher (so good!) and the basic corn on the cob/baked potato/salad (with greens from the garden!). We also enjoyed the fireworks - but quickly lost our buzz in the traffic jam on the way home.
Since it was quite dreary this morning, we had time to complete a few odds and ends around the house. I was especially proud of myself for finally making the curtain for the upstairs bathroom. A little privacy is always appreciated. Brian hung a new bamboo blind in the office.
We spent some time in the yard. Low and behold, while I was weeding the veggie garden, I found these....
They were just dangling under the leaves - so coy. I totally looked past them for the last week. Fortunately, the squirrels seem to be looking past them too. Maybe squirrels don't appreciate their vitamins and minerals. I can't wait to eat my first bunch. I bet I won't be saying that in a few weeks.
Lastly, a few pics Brian shot around the house. Just a little eye candy to enjoy the day with.
