Looking Out My Window: My patio looks ready for company. I even stuck some flags in the flowerpots last night. Maybe I should get the Tiki lights out too or would take be over the top?
My Weekend Plans Include: Celebrating the holiday with family and friends. Nothing could be better.
I’m Reading: Still listening to The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I'm also drooling over the book, Chocolate Chocolate by Lisa Yockelson. This is one of those cookbooks you'd like to start on page one and make everything in it. Of course, you'd weigh 3000 lbs. by the time you got to the last page. Yum!
Movie Marquee:No time for movies this weekend.
Something Quiltie: Next week I get to meet my newest baby niece. I have a quilt already for her to welcome her to the family.
I’m Thinking About: the 4th of July's I celebrated as a kid back in Michigan. Small town parade, sometimes being in the parade, sense of community, flags in the cemetery, neighborhood picnic, sparklers, fireworks, and feeling safe and loved.
One of My Favorite Things: I thoroughly enjoy making pies. On the 4th one of our traditions is to have pie while we watch the fireworks. Depending on the number of people who join us, I generally make three, cherry, blueberry and, of course, apple. I could probably sell a couple dozen to the people who walk by and comment on our dessert.
What I’m Planning: I'm having a house full this weekend so it does take a bit of prep work.
What’s For Dinner: I'm not cooking tonight. We're off to Puccinella's Pizza for a slice or maybe two.

Don't they look good?
Have a safe and wonderful holiday.
