Our town cancelled the fireworks for tonight. "budgetary constraints". We have opted not to travel to find some locally. A few small towns around here will have displays but it's difficult to get there and home without sitting in traffic for well over an hour.
We took a few days off this past week. We had some vague plans and then Pk wrenched his back on Sunday. Nothing serious, just painful. He had trouble standing and walking. We have a massage pad and a support belt and some pain patches and now he's moving easily.
Unfortunately, we had to abandon some of our plans. We had hoped to go to the lake today but it was raining this morning and there was a 70% chance of rain all day. We're going to try to go tomorrow. I say "try" because it's often crowded and they only allow so many cars into the park. We're leaving early in the morning and will spend the early part of the day there.
Today we're sitting as still as possible since it's hot and very humid. We're in the middle of a Star Wars marathon.
I've managed to do some spinning and I finished the anklets. Unfortunately, when I pulled out the camera to take a photo, the battery was dead. It was on in my purse and ran completely dead. I do have some photos of the alpaca fleece I washed. (Is alpaca coat called a "fleece"?).
