We enjoyed many "F's" yesterday!!

I planned to get out my patriotic decorations, but always wait until the last minute....When I went up to the attic to get them.... Good 'ol Uncle Sam was all I found!!

We have all kinds of wooden stars, flags, firecrackers.... from our
"Home Grown Country Collectable"days!!

Better luck next year!!

We enjoyed some yummy Food on the Fourth with a few of our Fantastic Friends!!

Then we went to watch some Fabulous Fireworks!!

My "sweet hubby" grilled the burgers about an hour before our guests came over......We decided to try a trick we learned in the baseball concession stand. Mix warm water with some beef bullion, garlic salt, onion flakes & a little Soy sauce....put your hot off the grill hamburger patties in the crockpot.....pour mixture over the patties....when it's time to eat..... you have hot juicey meat ready to eat!!

~~Happy 4th of July~~

Don't you just love Independence Day!!
We truly have much to be thankful for. We are a blessed nation.

We got together this afternoon with my parents & some of our favorite friends!!
Have you ever played "Blitz"??

It's a card game you play with quarters & a deck of cards.

Fun!! Fun!!

We are off to a Red Hawks baseball game & some Fireworks!!

******Wanted****** Chinese Laundry Lady!

I'd rather scrub the tub or clean the toilet than do laundry!
I tend to put it off until I can't walk into my closet.
Most of my clothes are cold wash, gentle cycle & hang to dry......
Way to many steps for me!!
Not to mention that I have to fold, hang & put them away!!
My other bad habit is running a load & getting busy with another project......
Stinky ~~ Winky when I finally remember it.
Most of the time it has to be washed again:(
When I do get into the laundry groove I fold & make these nice neat stacks of clothes for my boys only to have them dump them into a big pile on their bedroom floor......I try not to go upstairs to their rooms very often.
I just get my panties into a twist when I do!!

I would much rather be having Fun in The Sun!!

I better get back to my piles!!

Sweaty Betty!!

This is where I spend a big part of my day!! I love working outside in the yard!!
These are few pics of our lower pond.

I would much rather be outside working in the yard than inside doing laundry!!
The down side to working outside is I turn into "Sweaty Betty"!!

Dog Daze of Summer!

My dogs have a wonderful life!!

~Eat~Sleep~Play~Belly Rub~Walk~Back Scratch~

You can always count on them being happy to see you when you come in the front door!

Never mind that dog hair is a condiment at our house!!

Don't even think about wearing black clothes unless you have a lint brush close by!!

Daisy, Jaycee & Freckels are best freinds & get along better than my boys do!!

It's a good thing my sweet hubby is also a dog lover.

We share the bed with our furry friends!

It's truly a "Dogs Life" around here!!

Do you have a special pet in your life?

Friends that have dropped in to take a peek!!

Music to my ears!!!
