Happy July

Good Morning to you.  Here in Colorado, we've had a cold front move in and although our temp says 63, it is a damp cool 63 degrees.  I've walked Hunter and get to go hang out with a couple of grands this morning.  We had such a fun weekend; our welcoming party for the new neighbors was such fun.  Good food, good neighbors; hopefully this will be a start to a close friendship.  On Saturday we had a good day-hubby had to work during the day and then we went to our daughter's home for their annual 4th of July party.  They had 80 people and with their new landscaping, the yard held everyone so comfortably. In fact, they could have easily had 20 more people.  We staying until about 8:30 p.m., we had Hunter and Lily at our house and with the fireworks, I didn't want to take a chance on Hunter getting scared.  He never has in the past, but this year some of the really loud ones startled him.  There was such a variety of food at my girls house-hotdogs and every type of salad/dish you could ask for.  I was thankful we didn't stay for the fireworks because our elderly neighbors had grandsons over, who lit off some really loud ones in their back yard.  Hunter didn't freak, but was glad we were here to cuddle with.  Yesterday was a very relaxed day after a full week; we went on a 3 mile bike ride and just relaxed around the house.  I am please to say that I am working on the binding for my quilt and hope to have it done in the next day or so.  I'll be sharing it with you.  It has more quilting than any other I've done previously, I'm glad to be finished with it. For my next quilt, I'll really think about what type of pattern to do.  Tomorrow night we have our close friends over for his birthday and also to share our photos, maybe, of Ireland.  Barry grew up in Belfast and gave us some input on what to we want to share our adventure with him.  I had a couple of photos to share here this morning, but they aren't coming through.
So I guess it will be tomorrow that I share them.
Blessings on your day!
