First off, happy Independence day to all my fellow American’s out there!
THE STRIPES MATCH!
Yup, you read that right, I got the stripes of my socks to match. You have no idea how happy that makes me. I’ve always found it super hard and I always try to triple check my yarn to make my stripes match. The fact that these actually do just makes me giggle with happiness.
And thirdly, Hurricane Arthur.
The Boston Pops were last night, and no “1812 Overture” due to the weather (and the fireworks were early). The holiday party I HAD been planning to go to tonight was cancelled due to the weather (though I still get to go to a party tomorrow) and I’m sitting here watching it rain.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not worried by Arthur. I’ve been through category 3 and 4 storms in Florida while visiting family. I’ve slept through worse storms. It just kinda sucks that the holiday is being spoiled by the weather. No, I’m not blaming anything except the natural forces of mother nature, and honestly, I don’t think she cares about what the date is. It’ll certainly be interesting to watch the storm!
