I had the priveledge of spending the 4th of July on a friend's rooftop. We had a view of the water, all the boats, the ever expanding amount of people crawling on Gasworks park, and a dog to bother. Spent the day eating chips and grilling. It was a lovely day spent with lovely people, even met a few new people that I deeply enjoyed. Then we watched the fireworks go off and I biked home past the long lines of traffic.
For work the next day I also made some citrus shortbread cookies with plum buttercream filling. I had a jar of plum jam I had canned last summer that I needed to use up. They were very tasty!
