I don't hate fireworks--I really don't. We have a great view of all the people setting them off on the beach (which is illegal, as were the fireworks themselves, but whatever). Apparently the Native American casinos are allowed to sell fireworks that are illegal by state law. Who knew? There seems to be quite the pent up desire for fireworks this year.
What I don't like are:
-people who set them off at 2am and/or 5am (both happened here)
-people who set them off across the street from us, about 50 feet lower than us, and set off illegal fireworks that basically explode outside your window. The windows shook.
-fireworks ash on the driveway
Pilot spent most of the past two nights in the car in the garage (his 'happy' place during fireworks) and Comet stayed with us but needed to be sitting and sleeping as close to us as she could.
But now they'll be over, expect for random ones for the rest of the week.
Aside from fireworks and taking care of dogs, we had a good day yesterday. I made Crab Bisque from scratch (including the crab stock). Tim made crab pot stickers. I had a lot of left over crab stock so I sent out an alert to our neighbors to see if anyone wanted any, and dropped some off at one couple's house and we stayed to chat with them for a bit.
I finished reading "Friends and Strangers" by Courtney Sullivan and it was good (not outstanding). Sometimes I need to work a bit harder than normal to get into her books and they end up delivering. This one just never got to the 'can't put down' point for me unfortunately. I still liked it.
Oh and this.
I need to duplicate stitch the phases of the moon into the border but this is almost done! I cast on for a simple striped pullover sweater last night while we were watching "Hamilton" on Disney Plus. It was great.
