It's the 4th of July, one of those let's-get-together-and-have-a-cookout-and-then-go-see-some-fireworks holidays, and we're going to follow those traditions more than we usually do.
My sister Nancy is visiting from North Carolina, in the mood to celebrate the 4th with family and that's us. She had never spent any real time here in the Twin Cities, so we've had a fun week of showing her around and just hanging out with her.
Right before she arrived, it was Pride weekend -- the biggest yet -- so the days have been full.
Weather is finally perfect, I finally put out some plants on the patio, we'll enjoy it all while we can. Life s good, and the blog posts will get better.
