misc. monday & a countdown

I should have entitled this post "mixed-up monday"......between all the rain and having no electricity at the b&b most of the day, it was definitely not the best way to start the week. Hopefully, things will go a little smoother tomorrow and the rest of this holiday week. I had some great guests again over the weekend. It is always nice to have returning guests (and the gifts they often bring me are very much appreciated)!

Homemade Fig Preserves :O) :O)

-It's looking like our 4th of July celebration is going to be a very small affair this year. We are planning to cook lots of food, and of course, fire up the grill, but it may just be Peter & I. I was hoping Nathan and Kayla would be joining us too, but I think they might be eating with her family. I guess this is the beginning of new traditions...we'll see how things go! I'm actually okay with a low-key holiday, we'll just spend the evening in the backyard (we can even watch the fireworks from there).
Happy 4th of July!
