At the risk of repeating myself...


I got to leave work early yesterday.  Whoo-hoo!  Came home, took a nap (yes, I am lazy like that.).  I also did some laundry, so I suppose I wasn't totally lazy.  I made a scrumptious dinner of baked boneless pork chop, boiled new red potatoes, steamed carrots, and a lovely salad.

**DANG IT!  as I typed the words "a lovely salad" I just remembered that I wanted to get salad dressing at the store today.  I forgot.  Grrrr.**

Instead of ice cream I went to Rita's for dessert.  I love me some Rita's.  I had a mango/pina colada gelati.  It was heavenly.

I went to Safeway because they had some good sales going.  12 packs of soda (Coke and/or Pepsi) buy 2 get 3 free.  They also had cherries on sale.  As fate would have it, Giant had blueberries on sale 4 pints for 5 dollars.  I went to Giant this morning.  And forgot salad dressing.

I slept well last night and was hoping to sleep in a little today.  It was not to be however.  Thanks to my bladder and miss raven I got up even earlier than normal.  I ate breakfast, gave miss raven breakfast, and made cupcakes.  Yep.  Mocha cupcakes with coffee butter cream frosting.  I can't tell you how they were because I haven't eaten one....yet.  I saved a couple and might have one later.  We'll see.  Sadly, I do not have pictures for you.  I know, I know.  I am a bad blogger.  I apologize.

What plans do you have for celebrating our wonderful country's birthday??  I am planning on going into the big city on Sunday to meet up with my aunt and cousin for some 4th of July shenanigans.  Don't worry.  There won't be many shenanigans.  I am too old for shenanigans and there will be way too many people in the big city for shenanigans to take place.  I just kind of like the word shenanigans.

Whatever you do, have FUN!!!  And be safe!  I don't want any of my wonderful readers injured by stray fireworks!!! :)


  1. Enjoy your July 4th Day events :)
    I'm not American, so our countries birthday was Thurday. The fireworks and events were great :) Posted some pictures this morning.

  2. Love, love, love the sale at Safeway! I got 6 pounds of cherries, 2 dozen of corn and 6 cases of soda, (only paid for 2)! Glad to hear you had a wonderful 4th. We had a good time over Doug's having a cookout and then went to watch the fireworks at Safeway. See you soon. By the way, loved your pics of Raven and the parade.
