It was a beee-you-tee-full day here today. 90 degrees. Sun-drenched. Low humidity. Just gorgeous.
I'd love to say I was on a boat, or hiking, or sitting on a dock overlooking the ocean. Those are things that I've done for several recent July 4th's. And while I really didn't have a bad day - my main complaint is that I've got a cold. It started coming on last night, and has slowly worsened throughout the day. Tonight my nose is stuffy, my throat is scratchy, I'm tired. Not good.
I don't get sick very often which is actually fairly surprising given how much I do. But when I do get sick it's usually a prolonged thing, so I'm not optimistic that it will have blown over by tomorrow morning.
Still, that didn't dampen my day. I went to Trader Joe's, and did some shopping. I grilled a hamburger, and boiled some fresh local sweet corn for dinner. All things considered - it was a nice day off. Except for the cold.
Someone is doing fireworks outside. I have a feeling it won't stop me from falling asleep in a few minutes. I need to be at work tomorrow.
