A Merry Independence Day to you and yours! Mr. Timothy O’Leary is here on the island with Emma and I to celebrate the holiday! There will be island festivities this afternoon, but we are playing happy homemakers this morning. 

Mr. O’Leary is making sweet treats to bring to the party. We put the new slipcovers on the living room furniture! We have also begun decorating the golf cart for the Eighth Annual Golf Cart Parade here at Diamond Cove on Great Diamond Island! More on that later. 

First, an important message from the refrigerator:

Now, the slipcovers:

I purchased these slipcovers from IKEA in College Park, Maryland last week when I was visiting Jane and darling daughter. The sofa cost $29 and the loveseat was $19. A veritable bargain! The slipcovers I have now need desperately to be laundered. These are great for a change!  

Ok. We must get ready for the afternoon 4th of July activities!

Yours, Merryweather
