Fretful, I say, a little too fretful to do anything much useful, although I have managed to get a bunch of little housekeeping tasks I had been putting off taken care of. Perhaps I shall challenge my mom to a game of Scrabble in a bit.
The 4th at Ulysses was nice yesterday - it actually ended up being primarily people from where he works, some of whom I had met before at other parties. Had a nice chat about pyrotechnics with Joshua - we both want to get our state license but aren't having a lot of luck finding people who are looking for apprentices. Mind you, I don't think either of us have been devoting ourselves to the search 24/7, but it was fun to talk to him. He's interested in special effects - I just like fire.
Uly made Rosemary Sage bread (mmmm) and chocolate chip cookies (the kind with barely enough dough to hold the chips together) and barbecued dead critters for the carnivores. canyonwren was there - first time we'd seen each other face to face in entirely too long. We had a good long chat about all sorts of things, many of which I can't spell so they will just have to remain a mystery. People hung out, people went up on the roof, it was nice and mellow, and I had a fine time.
