After a slow start, the day turned into a gorgeous summer holiday. Having done the serious chores yesterday with some help from Geoffrey, I felt perfectly happy to do as little as possible today. We set up camp in the back yard around 3 PM, there was enough shade by then that I could sit outside, and enjoyed margaritas while knitting or reading. We watched a white balloon take flight from the party two houses down, and it shot upwards with tremendous speed. Maybe it had also gotten tired of the tejano and banda music blaring from the backyard party.
