4th and 5th of July

I took a trip to Cville for the Fourth and, for the first time ever, found myself rather chilly in July.  Global warming!  Hah!  (Seriously, it was not much below 70, but rather damp and in the country.  I could have used some sleeves is all.)

The next day I drove down to spend time with the tidewater family and have a lovely late lunch of cheese ball (my contribution) and sangria, fruited chicken, broccoli salad, corn on the cob, potato salad, and brownies (also my contribution).  It was nice to see all of the extended family (who I haven't seen since New Year!) and most especially spend time with my grandmother.  Our last two visits have been short on account of (1) the half marathon in March, which gobbled up a lot of my visit, and (2) the stupidity of whatever airline I was flying back in May, which resulted in my arriving ten solid hours behind schedule.

I've got a busy week . . . Charlotte is visiting Friday night and then I'll be consumed with cruise prep next week, so I'm taking the opportunity of a quiet night in to get some serious cleaning done.
