I love to see the "patriotic season" decorations! I went to Jo-Ann for some yarn last weekend, and they had plenty of red-white-and-blue decor, including a great wreath made of red and white tinsel, decorated with "firecrackers" and stars.

The only bad thing about summer in the south is the bugs...I had so many gnats on my earlier and it is so irritating.
We have so many little gnats out now it is terrible...even being outside for a little while and they swarm you!

I've weekend plans to remove the cover from my BBQ for the first time this year. In Ireland that's the sort of event that's about as frequently as Haley's comet.
ENJOY!!!!! Yum!!

What do you BBQ in Ireland? In the U.S. it's mostly hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, or steaks.

Pretty similar, hamburger, sausages, steaks, chicken. Beer can chicken has become a big thing. Few potatoes in foil cooked in the charcoal. It is Ireland after all lol.
Mmm! My mom used to put potato slices with salt, pepper, and a little butter in foil packets for my dad to cook on the grill with steaks ... those potatoes were SO good!
