Happy Fourth!
I hope that you are enjoying a Happy Fourth of July, celebrating with family and friends. We are! My sweet friend, Loretta, had a festive party yesterday. She taught several of us to play a fun card game called "Skit Skat". I'm enjoying my festive banners hung on my vintage window. Tina gave me the window and she will be up from Tucson on Wednesday. I can't wait to show her how I'm embellishing our window.



I made these cookies with my William's Sonoma Message in a Cookie set. Of course I was in a hurry and was out of unsalted butter. I used margarine and promptly threw them in the trash as soon as they came out of the oven. I learned my lesson.



Today the four of us are home together. I made a summer dinner of burgers, potato salad, watermelon, lemonade and flag cake for dessert. We will be watching the fireworks from our master bedroom window enjoying the air conditioning. I think it only hit 110 today.

Happy Fourth!
