Eat your corn on the cob!

I hope all my fellow Americans have a lovely, festive Independence Day today! My town had a less-than-ideal start to our festivities when our fireworks celebration got rained out big time.

Instead of watching fireworks, I stayed under the awning of my house to watch the nasty (but super cool) thunderstorm. I don’t know about you all, but I absolutely love thunderstorms! Did you know I used to want to be a meteorologist? Wait, what if I was on the Today Show?! Non-mid-life crisis happening right now??

Anyway…if you’re not enjoying grilled foods, ice cream, and fireworks, you can check out this week’s fascinating Friday links!
