Ahh it was over too fast.
I got the table clean and cushions all put out. Since we're alone so much we usually only put out a couple of cushions- this looks much better! We had perfect mid to upper 70's weather, dry and no rain.
I wanted to share with you about this new votive candle ring for umbrellas that I discovered at Pier 1 Imports. They carry it in brass at the store but it's also available in white from their web site. I liked it a lot better and the gal ordered it from the store and I got free shipping!
It can be added or taken away so easily because of the hinge and latch assembly. Smart!
Our daughter was on her way up to visit on Friday morning. I sent Dan off for a couple of extra groceries and to get some strawberries from a local farm stand. Boy these were/are incredible! I froze up 5 quarts and we ate one! The smell was amazing!
I spent a little too much time in the kitchen but we had plenty of food to munch on so that was good! I made potato salad, pasta salad, baked beans, a peach dump cake and apple pie! Dan grilled, hot dogs, burgers and chicken.
It was good!
We had an impromptu visit from the neighbors which was great!

Our area is well known for it's tart cherry production and they have the National Cherry Festival each year around the July 4th holiday time. The US Air Force Thunderbirds were part of the air show put on Saturday and Sunday. What's real fun is when they fly off to return from one of their performances they go over our area several times. It's very exciting to hear the loud thunderous sound they make! Sweet cherries have just started coming in and they sell them by the cup full for people to enjoy while walking around.
There was a antique car show on Sunday afternoon. My daughter was invited to sit in the dark red one (above in the other collage) called the Mainline by Ford. You can just see her sitting behind the steering wheel!
It came and went too fast.
Teddy was thrilled because we had the windows opened. The evenings cooled into the 60's and felt wonderful at night.
I feel fulfilled but sad that's it's over- I guess that's how it goes when you have a good time!
I hope you all had a good weekend too!
