Hello, and welcome to Best of the Weekend!
As I write this, we are under a tornado watch.
That doesn't happen too often around here. 
After the storm moves out later tonight, the forecast promises  
perfect weather for the remainder of the holiday weekend. 
On the 4th, we're meeting friends at one of our favorite restaurants 
on the Hudson River (about 20 miles north of New York City)   
for dinner and fireworks.  
After dinner, the restaurant sets up chairs along the banks of the river,
where we can see fireworks up and down the Hudson!

Wishing all of my American readers a great July 4th,
and my Canadian readers a happy Canada Day!

Just a reminder that there is still time to link up 
your red, white and blue posts at our
Yankee Doodle party, which runs through July 4th.
I've been pinning like crazy!
Non-bloggers, your job is simply to browse 
and soak up all of the patriotic inspiration.
Cindy, Paula, Ginnie and I are your hosts!

And now, let's get back to the reason you are here tonight,
and get this Best of the Weekend party started!
