4th of July Bits and Bobs

I love being in THE LAND OF THE FREE and I am very, VERY proud to be an American.
And, being an election year, and the strife we find our country in,
I WANT TO BACK OUR COUNTRY ALL I POSSIBLY CAN.


 Don't YOU feel the same way.?
FLY that flag....every single day....to support this great nation of ours.



...when we were at our daughter's lake house last 4th of July, I stole one of these cute patriotic beer cans....


so fun with flowers in it... 

this 4th of July fun was a few years ago... 


this is all packed SOMEwhere and I've never been able to locate it...bummer

This is the BEST pie....and I THINK 
THIS is the recipe I used...


will post more photos of THE DAY
later...

  1. Happy 4th of July. I have to agree, I'm feeling a lot more patriotic this election year. : ) Although, we're spending the day at home.. it's actually cool and rainy in Baltimore today so I am baking some honey garlic chicken and mac and cheese. Easy day. ( although I do miss those huge cookouts that we used to have!) Have a great time.

  3. A great evening to you and yours, dear Lady...
    .. we will watch fireworks at a Friend's... and our temps for Friday and Saturday will be 100 (Not "heat index" actual temps outside... which tends to be cooler than in the house...

  12. bj, I'm looking at those temperatures you have posted at the top of your blog for this week and thinking I could never live there because I would wilt immediately. But somehow you manage to remain the coolest lady in blogdom with those festive glasses! Yes, our flag flies every day here! Happy Independence Week ~~ I hope your temps improve soon. Linda

  15. Hello bj, Oh my gosh, My link did not come up. We have been gone all day and we just returned home. When I looked at my post I was so upset. I am so sorry. I have been having trouble with Mr. Linky and I will be checking this out.

    Your post is always fun and I too posted some previous pics today. We were away all day and I did not check my post this morning. Sigh!

    Happy 4th of July.
    Love, Jeanne

  18. I have got all my red, white and blue decorations put away for another year. They have been up since Memorial day. I still have some outside to get down but right now it is raining here, we need the rain so I will not complain. I had a quite 4th . Have a blessed day. Madeline

  19. Such a festive look you had for the Fourth. Afraid we were the Scrooges this year - neighbors gone from the cul de sac so we were the only ones around and had clouds and rain and unseasonably cold temperatures so no decorations and no festivities for us. I am enjoying the holiday via your post! Happy week ahead~ xoxo J.

    Looks like you had a fun 4th. Btw, I loved your bird bath and I showed it to my sister when I was in Ohio to celebrate my mom's 87th birthday last week. My sis loved it, too! I read her your post and she realized what we all know...what a cute, fun lady you are!
