Because I am stubborn, and because I think stopping to celebrate - even a little - is important, we made a couple of the salads we usually don't bother with except for get - togethers, and my daughter made a cake. It was yummy and very patriotic, if not (as she noted) historically accurate!
Had my last spinning class yesterday. We dyed the yarns we had plied two weeks earlier. I was aiming for olive green, but it went more dull green - needed a bit more yellow, I think, but here is the result.
I wish I could take the next spinning class, but the Sat. schedule for that does not mesh with my summer schedule. Another time I'll take it and learn Navaho plying.
For now I will take the new bats of purple wool I bought yesterday and sit with a fan at my back and spin. These blisteringly hot days are good for activities that do not require a lot of outdoor activity.
I hope it is warm and sunny where you are, and the breeze is enough to keep you cool.
