Yes the red, white and light blue glads have bloomed!! Now we will see if they are still pretty for tomorrow at 1 PM!! * I am preparing some dishes today for tomorrow. Potato salad, cuke salad and coleslaw. DH is doing a dessert. A nice rich banana pudding. Okay with me no baking!! DH is also smoking a beef brisket. We will also have hot dogs on the side… ha!! Not a big crowd. Some are at the beach in NC. Small intimate affair…haa! * Need to do a load of wash too. Do some straightening up…(as in put my canning stuff out of the way..;-) I did get my stuff together for doing up the outside tables for tomorrow.
Below is my 'just because' from DH yesterday! A pretty tiny rose bush! Will use on table then plant it. I lost all mine but 2 over the past year...from drought and winter. Here is a pic of one of my shelf's in the living room. This flag I have had ,using inside and outside on wreaths. Has a yellow ribbon on it. I did that many years ago when my step son was a Marine and they fought in The Gulf War. The small painting on the heart is by an online pal and hangs on there nicely. Hope everyone is going to have a wonderful July 4Th. We are blessed that those folks fought for our freedoms way back when and should never take it for granted!
