A little slow on the start here this morning, due to our neighborhood's brave, fireworks-loving souls who would not be silenced by mere rainstorms (inspiring, really)... much to the dogs' and cat's dismay and mine. Until the middle of the night.
I'm used to it by now, but will never lose my next-day resentment for the resulting tiredness and crankitude.
p.s. I suppose this was a day off then; I'm comforted by how many of us disgruntled day-after-the-Fourthers there are. Christopher just made the most amazing dinner of whole wheat fancy pasta, chicken, avocado, yellow tomato (from my little plant!), mango and probably something else. Yum, I say. The rest of the evening to errands and undemanding television. Back tomorrow. Probably.
