The Week in Review
Things to note:
Last week I said: “Rain won’t stop you if you don’t let it.” This week my motto was: “If I wanted to live in Seattle, I’d move there.”
New England residents possess innate genes that require us to complain about the weather. But when I found out that our teenage visitors from last week teased that we live in Forks, WA (Twilight fans will get that one), it put the weather further into perspective.
If you think yourself witty while composing catchy names for a DBA (doing business as) rest assured, there are thousands of clever people who got there before you. And they are already in business.
Not much improves upon waking up to sunshine for the first time in two weeks--well, except for sipping fresh brewed coffee while you look out the window.
Fireworks inspire even when you watch them from a big-box parking lot at the side of a busy state highway.
Doing so though, makes you pine for previous years, sitting at a salt marsh in “World’s End” located on the tip of a peninsula and watching them explode over the harbor.
Reminder for next year: leave earlier.
Happy Fourth, everyone.
