Mr. Fix-It.

The lock on our back door broke this evening. I went to let the dogs out the back door into the yard and the little knob came right off in my hand…

We had to use needle-nosed pliers to get the back door open. Thankfully, we could also use the needle-nosed pliers to get the door to latch again after they came back inside.

UPDATE: I managed to find the exact same lock at Wood’s Hardware downtown and replace the lock and add a deadbolt to our back door. It was surprisingly not that difficult at all. This is now the third lock I’ve replaced in our house. A while back the deadbolt on our front door broke after unlocking it to get into our house when we were coming home one evening. And I replaced that lock with little difficulty as well. I’m becoming quite the master locksmith. Haha. 😀🔐❤️

Fourth of July fireworks.

Once again this year, our neighbors a few streets over from us shot off a bunch of Fourth of July fireworks which we got to enjoy by just looking out of third-floor bedroom window…

We decided to call this their grand finale even though we could still hear fireworks going off around our house until well after midnight…

I think it’s really neat when you don’t even have to leave your house to watch a pretty impressive display of Fourth of July fireworks. 😀🎆❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Last time Genifer went to the grocery, she got two more of the Kroger Prep+Pared meal kits. Tonight she made Corn&Black Bean Chilaquiles with roasted salsa…

It was another outstanding meal, particularly impressive because it was vegetarian. The best part was the crunchy tortilla strips that topped the dish. Those Kroger Prep+Pared meals are so good. We love them! 😀🌮❤️
