No plans in these parts. There's the parade downtown but it depends on how hot/humid it is before I decide whether or not I'll go. It was kinda disappointing last year. One thing's for sure, I'm staying on this side of the Bridge!!! I remember 2 years ago when we arrived from Seattle on 7/2, although we started from Albany, NY very early, we hit bumper to bumper traffic about 10 miles before the Canal, at 11:00 AM. The next day we had to move stuff out of the storage unit in Sandwich to the BBay house and that was a looooooong day of sitting in traffic, both ways. I'd totally forgotten that's how it is here on summer weekends!
Here's a picture I got off Pinterest for a seemingly easy-looking strawberry project....
And here's my version...this was my first attempt. The Canada Day strawberries were my second attempt. Everyone told me to carefully melt the white chox chips in the microwave, but despite my best efforts, the chox seized and I had to throw it out. Then I tried melting them in a bowl that was placed in a small pot of heated water and that worked better. However, I had a hard time dipping the berries in the chox and sugar, and as they cooled, they stuck to the plate! Still tasted great though.
I'm sure it's going to be bad fireworks-wise and it's going to be a stressful night for the pups...I expect it will continue on throughout July as many towns continue to have weekly fireworks. Keep your pets safe and inside, especially if you are planning to be gone all day!!!
