|Look at all that green|
It sprinkled on us a little, but nobody minded. We really enjoyed chatting and walking together and everybody was prepared for the conditions, which were so much better than they could have been. No real rain and even the occasional sun break. Afterwards, since all the coffee shops were full to overflowing, we got coffee to go and sat on the steps at the Village Green before heading off to our various holiday activities.
I had a wonderful quiet dinner at home, with no real desire to head down to the waterfront to watch the fireworks. Instead, I settled in with a good book and also spent some time chatting with SG before the fireworks started. I sure do feel for the animals that don't know what's going on and think the world is ending! The booms and whistling rockets went on until late, but somehow or other I managed to fall asleep anyway and woke to blissful silence this morning.
And other than my schedule being off by one day, everything is back to normal. I went to the gym and worked out with my usual enjoyment. Then it was time to catch the bus home and sit here and write a blog post before getting back to that book. (It's a sci-fi novel by Michael Swanwick.) I hope you had a good holiday and enjoyed your day as much as I did mine.
