July 2 - Lisa's Musings From Every Day Life

So, will I see you Sunday at the annual Jaycees 4th of July Parade? This year it begins at 11 a.m. instead of 10 a.m. downtown and if you haven't gone -- you are really missing out on a great parade.

I went for the first time last year, after I finally figured out how to get my van out of the garage with a malfunctioning garage door -- but that's another story.

Short of a good fireworks display, this event has the perfect amount of red, white and blue sizzle, great music, and familiar faces -- did I mention quirky groups no one sees any other time of year? -- for a terrific Independence Day celebration.

Add in some grilled food, strawberry shortcake, fresh lemonade, oh, go ahead, toss in some ice cream -- and you've got my idea of a great July 4th weekend.

I'm looking forward to mine, let me tell you, because at the rate I'm writing, I might even get to take off Monday.

You got a preview of some of the food I'll be sampling yesterday but I'll fill in the gaps as it unfolds.

The Chelsea Farmers' Market, old tractors and hopefully a new dishwasher tomorrow, a parade on Sunday and maybe a day off Monday?

Happy Fourth of July Long Weekend everyone. Enjoy and be safe.
