I was upstate for the 4th of July at a friends house, doing all the usual 4th of July things; grilling, drinking beer, and swimming in the pool. We had a great spread of corn, peppers, onions and a few big rib eyes. Also, a great chilled red wine that we drank on the patio. I was skeptical at first about red wine for a bbq but I was proved wrong. The slight chill made it really refreshing.

Back to the cherries! We snacked on them before lunch and ever since then, I’ve been buying cherries for my apartment and it takes me back a little to that day trip out of the city and how nice it was to run around in a big backyard with lots of space, to forget about time, obligations and just spend time with friends and family.

On the train ride back from Poughkeepsie that night we saw some fireworks being set off on the Hudson which was a great end to a long, exhausting and wonderful 4th of July.
