Happy 4th Weekend!

Mark and I made a list of things we wanted to get done this weekend. We got a good start on them Saturday morning, starting at about 7 a.m. After we had worked outside for a while, I took a break to have some coffee and read the paper on the porch of Periwinkle Cottage (the cute little building that Mark insists on calling the "storage shed"--silly Mark).

About twenty minutes after sitting down, he delivered this to me. Okay, so maybe he's not so silly after all...

Valerie and I had gotten a head-start on the holiday weekend by getting a pedicure on Thursday. You may remember Valerie. My beloved red boots go partying with her every April.

Well, my red boots are back in the closet until next year. Good thing, too. They would be jealous. I love red toenails, and once a year I go all-out and add a coating of sparkly red glitter. Valerie? She had a little American flag painted on each toe, even the little ones!

Yeah. About those tanned feet. I am convinced that Valerie says the word "suntan" and instantly gets a shade darker. The best, the very best, I can hope for is a pleasant shade of beige.

Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy yourself and remember to be thankful for those who continue to fight for our freedom.

Love your Periwinkle Cottage! And I am jealous, too... mainly of having the breakfast served to you. *sigh*

And JHRME... what were you doing reading blogs at that time of night... er... morning?!?! Was your place too stinky to sleep?

Pretty close Grandma G, it was stinky earlier so we didnt leave our windows and doors open to cool things off. We went to bet and I kept waking up hot and my alergies were buggin me so I checked out blogs and opened doors and windows!We cooled off quite nicely. I went to bed when the sun started coming up. It occured to me I should take a Grandma G style sun rising picutre but I was in bed. So I pulled the covers over my head to keep the sun out!

Oh, dear... a private conversation on your blog, Cindy! Apoligeez to you!! ;)

To JHRME and Grandma G: Carry on. You guys crack me up!

Note to Grandma G: This is how I discovered you in the first place: private conversations between you and How About Orange.

Periwinkle Cottage? Sounds like a getaway!

I don't tan either. I burn. I join you on the beige-fringe!
