I needed a quick nap after work and the remains of the blueberry pie before I could sit down and read your latest and write one of my own.
Happy July 5th, a great day. All I had to do was show up at work and arrange flowers. Yesterday, since we were not officially having a party we could just chill.
No need to pick bouquets and place them around the house. Or vacuum, dust , and clean kitchen and bathroom. Why bother, the housekeeper comes on Tuesday.
Totally not necessary to drag the table and chairs and umbrella and lights out into the garden.
Eight people can eat comfortably on the little patio. Oh, the numbers went up to 10 for dinner and 3 more for dessert?
No worries. As soon as GG finishes mowing our lawn and our neighbor's, she'll run across the street and borrow a grill so she can cook ambidextrously.
Better go and borrow an extra cooler because here comes Mark ( thought he was in Pakistan) with several cases of beer. Thank God we doubled up on the ice. Might need an extra chair also because it's starting to look like we'll be feeding eleven.
Oh, you brought your dog! I was worried we would only have one hot breathed lab pushing its beseeching head between our legs at the table.
Next up: the food we would have eaten if we had a party.
In the garden. With friends and family. On the 4th of July.
