Now that things have quieted down around here (what a loud night last night). Fireworks going off until early this morning. But I love the 4th and what it means to us in the United States.
Since I wrote last in this blog, I bought a flat of strawberries from a local farm and made jam, and we had fresh strawberries on our cereal for several mornings. Now I'm looking for the raspberries to be ripe for the next batch of jam.
We had 2 of our granddaughters with us for 4 days while their mom is working in a fireworks stand to help out their private gym with funds. Their dad was working on a job in Kentucky so grandma and grandpa stepped up to the plate. We had a great time and hope they weren't too bored - but you never know with a 14 yr old and an 8 yr old. We went to Northwest Trek - a neat place with lots of native Northwest animals - saw grizzlies, bison, elk, mountain sheep and many more.
One day we went to Bradley Lake Park (I sat in the car and nearly finished my sock!). Had a good time with the girls, but tonight is very enjoyable with just the two of us around. Hubby barbecued some ribs to go with a green salad and we were very happy with the peace and quiet.
This is what my sock looks like so far. Just have to do the Kitchener stitch to close the toe. Hope to work on it a lot today while hubby is out golfing and I have the day to myself!!!
