The sun is shining and we're all set to celebrate today. For many years we've had a family BBQ here and this year is no exception., When the kids were young we'd go watch the parade but now we stay home and watch it on FB where someone is sure to post it.
We walked around the lake as usual. Saw a raccoon hightailing it across the grass towards the lake. Then a noisy bunch of crows ( a murder of them?) alerted us to another raccoon high in a tree. The raccoon didn't seem to mind them as he made himself comfortable and prepared to take a nap.
I did some baking. There was also a cheesecake but it disappeared rather quickly and I didn't get a picture. The top picture is a lemon square.
About that big unattractive (so far) house being built nearby, I'll take a picture once it's done and post it. No doubt that will be in a couple of months.
That's my post for today. It had been close to a week since I last posted. I think those 35*C days might have been to blame.
Happy July 1st to Canadians ( and to those in the U.S. happy July 4th.
