In yesterday's blog I didn't have any plans to celebrate the 4 th. As it turned out, I got together with two Helens from Church. We decided to go somewhere it was cool since it would be close to 100 degrees today. None of us wanted to put up with crowds, so we went to see a movie (Knight and Day) and out for lunch. We shared a large plate of nachos at a Mexican restaurant, just enough to get us through the movie without being tempted to get drinks and popcorn.
We also went to the outlet mall. I was looking for a cherry pitter. Cherries are in season and I wanted to freeze some for my protein shakes. We had to go to two different kitchen stores before I found one.
We all parted company after having an enjoyable afternoon. I had to get home to let Angel out. The rest of the afternoon was spent catching up on reading Dreamer's blogs and a short nap.
Later in the evening we (Angel and I) watched and listened to all the fireworks going off in the neighborhood. We could see some of the higher bursts from the community display over the rooftops. (yes, Angel watched too) By then it was after 10pm, much later than my normal bedtime. So off to bed.
Thanks for reading, and welcome to my first two followers, Ted, my son and Mellissa, my daughter.
