Good God but the supposedly non-toxic bug spray I got doesn't work at all. I smelled good though…essential oils and all that. I'm TRYING not to scratch. Sigh. Apart from that, it was a lovely Fourth. We had a quiet, relaxed day. Ernie crossworded, I read. He talked about vacuuming. I shrugged. He agreed.  We made potato salad while listening to John Prine. We chatted to the boys. I decided our friends deserved me putting on a bra and a clean dress so I did that. Lots of good food. Sat in the cool of the house until it started to get dark. Ensconced ourselves in the front yard and watched the neighborhood fireworks.

I took two pictures and then decided it was too much work.


A good day. Thanks all.
