I do hope you aren't floating down the Mississippi at the moment!!!!!! I started posting this thread yesterday, trying to beat the storms moving in - needless to say, I wasn't successful and had to unplug the computer. So, I will try to get it done between the next round of storms moving through!

Here's hoping you have a lovely day (August 7) and your basement isn't flooded!!!!! May you share it with family, friends, (and if you are floating down the river) some nice people from Missouri.

Isa offers Katherine a large pitcher of watermelon martinis and a inflatable raft with cupholders. For starters, roasted zucchini rounds topped with a morel mushroom and asiago cheese. The main course will consist of sweet-sour Hoisen BBQ chicken, a nice homemade creamy cole slaw and sweet corn - lots of sweet corn - all you can eat sweet corn (with lots of butter, of course). For dessert, Isa thinks a nice carrot cake with a creamy orange frosting and vanilla ice cream will do the trick.

Again, Happy Birthday and may all your wishes be fulfilled!!!!

Thank you Gretchen, Hien, Tina, Yiren, and Michael(even though you think my birthday's tomorrow)!

So far I've had a wonderful day - I've done lots of sleeping in and reading of Harry Potter (I'm only on Book 6 right now, but diligently trying to finish the series.) I'll get to work on all that food and the watermelon martinis - sounds yummy! My birthday present to myself is a nice cold Smithwick's (on tap of course), but that will have to wait a month until I'm in Ireland.

Thankfully the deluge of rain has mostly missed me. We had a ton Saturday mid-day, but it cleared out in time for my parent's anniversary party - very, very thankfully. Since then it's mostly missed us, though the weather has been hotter than hades and insanely humid, but what more do you expect from August in the midwest

Thank you Heather! (I was writing when you posted and thus missed you)

Happy Happy Day Katherine!!!

Glad the rain and flash floods missed you. Nothing worse than having to paddle the house back up the Mississippi....tough to go against the current.

May you not be visited by anymore political candidates this month!!! Get those damn caucuses over with already!!
