camera's eye


Yesterday, we were all-American...even those of us who don't come from the United States. We had our annual Independence Day BBQ hosted by the AWC at a lovely location on the shore of Ringsjön (a member's home). Thanks to the high level of moisture content in the air, Barky had a great time playing Humidity Hair From Hell plus I had a red red nose (from the allergy-treatment aftermath (so no photos of me, ahem). There were hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and watermelon slices and red/white/blue berry desserts, but alas, I didn't have time to make deviled eggs OR rice krispies so part of me thinks the picnic part needs a do-over. Our contribution was a yummy couscous salad, but I have a metric ton of it leftover. There were firecrackers (!), rowboats, swimming, sunshine, lots of laughter and conversation and a PUPPY!
