Did you get to see a bunch of fireworks? Did you spend good quality time with your loved ones? Did you have a BBQ dinner cookout? See any good movies?

I had to work during the day, though I did do pretty well on book sales. Could have earned more if there were people interested in my plants and garden statues, but oh well...

I'm still pleased with how good the photos of them came out, especially when making them look even gorgeous and in high quality after some slight touches on the photobucket editor. I'll share some and leave a link to my Gallery page in a bit.

Back to the rest of how my 4th of July went. For dinner, my family and I had cheeseburgers with lettuce and tomato with hash browns. For desert, we had strawberry crème pie! Mmmmm, so good...

Later on into the evening, Mom and I went over to our friend Bob's house to play a few board games. On the way there, we saw a firework after crossing the bridge! Cool. Board gaming was fun. I ALMOST won at Alhambra that night! Everything in my city was connected by a badass 17 point bordering, and I had the most green tiles (and the most blue at the end, it's 18 points). Bob had the most purple and a 15 pointer border, and he beat me by one point. Wow, what a game! It was my longest ever wall, and Mom's wall was just as long.

We also played 2 games of Ugh, and a game of Splendor. Geez, our friend Rich is really good at Splendor! Mom and I will have to start taking more chances around him from now on. Oh, and in the background, Bob's neighbors were lighting fireworks. We could hear all the whistling and popping noises. :)

And now, for the awesome plant photos... )

Sometime later on I'll upload a new plant vlog on my main variety channel.

First things first; yeeeep, I'm still alive! I managed to catch up with some of you on my F-list! Next week, I'll try to say hi to some more of you.

I figured I wasn't the only one hyped up about the uber awesome FF7 remake. *flail, fail, flail!* It's happening! It's actually happening!! I remember first reading about a 3D remake about this ages ago, in a Game Informer magazine. That was just trolly of Square Enix to just show dangle the concept over us like that, IMO.

Now, it thrills me that it's becoming a reality. Woohoo! \o/

I have NO IDEA when I'll get a PS4! (A Nintendo 3DS is the next big thing to save up for anyway, once I'm successful in getting a hang drum.) Video Gaming wise, I've only done a little DS gaming over the weekend.

Still board gaming, of course. It's amazing that more people have visited the meetup group. I think there's one or two new regulars or semi-regulars. That's awesome.

Haha, last Friday, I almost pulled a Ryan Higa with Mom. Though, Tri-ominos is hard for me to win and get lucky at... The golden horseshoe was with me during all the other games. We're especially competitive when playing Splendor. It's one of our most favorite warm-up games.

Ugh has proven to be a lot of fun too. What's amazing about that press your luck card game is this; there are times when it gets brutal! You may happen to draw a few nice various colored cards with high point values on one turn, only to draw a minus 3 Ugh card the next, leading to discarding your whole face up pile of point cards. (If the Ugh card is the first one you take from the draw pile, you get to keep that as a consolation prize. At scoring time, the end of the game, each Ugh is 3 points each.)

The rest of what's going on with me will go under cuts.
