It’s a little early in my neck of the woods, but if my math’s correct, those of you in the Pacific and on the western edge of it are seeing fireworks! Tonight I’m making a ribeye and garlic-parmesan mashed potatoes for myself. I’ll stay up to watch the shows on TV, then I’ll hit the hay. Tomorrow I’ll drive out to the nearest body of water where I can dip my hand in as has become tradition for me. I’m also starting my new novel tomorrow, so it’s going to be a busy day. How are you celebrating?
