Happy 4th!

This morning I hit the 4th of July food booths for breakfast....YUM!  Later Mr. Adams and I rode the motorcycle into town and watched the parade.  Then we dropped by a friend's house to help her.  She is building a greenhouse and needed a hand.  And after that I did some weeding.  We had pizza for dinner and watched a movie.  Not a bad day, and it didn't even rain!

No garden photos so I will share photos of my framed organizer in the sunroom.

Isn't it cool?  It's my way to keep track of "what to do when." 

Yvonne Christner helped me work on it last year.  She did the stenciling.

I really love it!
