July 4, Three Days Late

Wow. I didn't realize that I hadn’t posted since last Tuesday. Sorry about that. It’s quite easy to lose track of time at the Lake.

We had an enjoyable Independence Day. We went over to the Community Center early and enjoyed some donuts while shopping the merchandise put forward by the Women’s Club.

Hubster took one look at this display and had one comment for the bear on the right

“Dude-- Don’t pass out if your buddies have sharpies”

There were hot dogs for sale too, but I was not up for a hot dog at 10 am.

We hung around long enough for the bike parade, where I saw one of my all-time favorite entries

Washington crossing the Delaware! They did a fantastic job on that entry.

You may remember that last year, someone brought a pony to the festivities. This year?

Two ponies! And you can see the yellow lab just behind the black pony for scale. These suckers are tiny!

Once we got home, I made the World’s Easiest Peppermint Brownies. I took photos for a mini-cooking tutorial, but we’ll save that for another day.

The neighbors were playing a game that Trillian42 will recognize …

After sunset,

I did a little sewing

Binding for the Painfully Patriotic Pineapple quilt, and some M&Ms “secret” sewing that is now ready to be mailed to Lisa. Yay!

I have some other stuff already photographed, so I’ll try to post more often this week. Hope you had an enjoyable weekend as well!

Hee! I do indeed recognize that game!

Looks like you had a good time, and I agree on the "Don't pass out..." comment. That was funny!

yahoo -- it's fabric instead of yarn! I'm waiting to hear more about those brownies...

(the word verification is totally illegible tonight... hope I can pass the test!)

Hee! I love that your neighbors were playing testicle toss.

When you hadn't posted in a couple days, I figured that you either got really busy or were really relaxed. I'm glad to hear it's the latter!

I wonder if those ponies happen to know the one that goes jogging out by Jenn. Ponies all know each other, right?

Hey we have the Blue Balls game! It was a hit for Memorial Day and was a great alternative to horseshoes. Less wear and tear on the turf too. Between that and Cornhole, it was great.

Not up for a hot dog at 10 am? Well you'd better GET in the mood, missy -- how else are you going to chow down on the pre-game feasts come Steelers season?
