How was your Fourth of July? Did you eat too much food? Drank too much beer? I know I ate too much. I was supposed to follow what diet? We barbecued for the first time in umpteen years and, oh my goddess. What have I been doing depriving myself all these years? That grill will be used a-plenty this year.
I didn’t even bother going out to watch fireworks. I just stand in my front yard and be entertained that way. No crowds, no fighting with traffic. All the fun and excitement of a party from the comfort of my home.
Here’s my roundup of all my favorite links this week. Have a great weekend!
