Weekend, July 4th Style

Did you like how I took yesterday off from blogging? Funny how I feel responsible to let you know if I’m not blogging so I blog. It’s just how I roll, friends.


The weekend is officially over now and I’ve got a recap on it. There were Friday Night Snacks, of course.

And then it was Independence Day. I might be the only person around who was glad all the celebrations were canceled because it meant Dale was home and not working. Of course, we didn’t have a big bash or anything. Hannah came over, along with Jessica and Jackie. We had appetizers.

And later we had burgers and hot dogs and potato salad. Hannah made yummy ice cream sandwiches for dessert and we ate those around the fire pit.

Sunday was for hanging out and Monday was as well. I contemplated a trip to Lowe’s but didn’t follow through. I find it sort of remarkable that the only store I’ve been in since March is the grocery store. I might be experiencing a bit of quarantine fatigue but I’m still committed to the cause.

How are things in your little corner of the world?

P.S. Kym is blogging about the Read With Us book club selection Wild Game today, be sure and check it out!

  1. I should know better than to read your blog when I’m a bit hungry; now I’m hungrier. It’s so nice to see all the elements of the traditional 4th cook-out and I’m glad Dale was home to enjoy them all!

  2. Silver linings! I’m glad you were able to experience a quiet 4th at home . . . with Dale. XO

  3. Not shopping has been a weird thing. I keep thinking of things I would like to pick up for the garden or home project, but can’t get myself motivated to shop, even online. Probably hood for the personal budget but I do worry about our economy.

  4. Nice change up from the usual flag cake. Although I am now craving 7-layer dip!

  5. Just a thought about that trip to Lowes — I ordered online and did a curbside pickup several weeks ago at Home Depot for several things I need. I would assume Lowes is probably doing the same. I haven’t even been to a grocery store — ordering grocery delivery through Peapod — so looking for any way to not go in other stores at this time.

  6. Looks like a very nice weekend Carole. Dale home and Jackie coming over – what could be better? I did crack up over your blog post yesterday – lol.

  7. Sounds like you had a good 4th in spite of everything. Kudos to you and yours for making it work. I have been doing grocery pick-ups mostly. I have gone into our little Sprouts store a couple of times. Everyone in there is very conscientious with masks and social distancing, but I try to get in and out quickly. I did a curbside pick up at the hardware store I couldn’t avoid, but the rest has been online. It’s weird, isn’t it? I find it inconvenient, but I keep telling myself the alternative could be grim. I hope you have a happy, short week, Carole.

  8. I love your Flag Dip! (what’s underneath the cheese, tomatoes and olives?) It is weird about shopping. I’ve done curbside pickup at a few places, but I’ve only been inside Costco (wine) and the library (to vote). I’m kind of liking all the online ordering … and the deliveries to my doorstep.

  9. OMG! I love the red, white and blue appetizers and the flag dip. I’m going to have to remember that for the next USA holiday. Glad you had a nice 4th and Dale got to be home and celebrate with you.
