I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.
It was fantastic here. A great day with family, swimming, barbecue (recipe to come) and of course…fireworks.
We had a quick storm in the afternoon that brought hail and torential rains, but after another brief thunderstorm around 8:00 p.m. the deep colored clouds were a perfect backdrop for fireworks.
Several communities must have had them as it sounded like a war zone, between the public displays and the local neighborhood pyromaniacs. Nina and I (and the poor, traumatized dog) slept while the boys performed their pyrotechnic show in the street. They had a great time and, I must say, I was impressed.
I was not impressed, however by the carnage left at the end of the driveway.
Eventually, they did clean it up and the nagging stopped.
How did you spend the 4th?
