The party was fun. Not as many people as we thought maybe 30. We expected 100, since he asked us and didn’t even know us. My friend brought an old boyfriend who is back in town for awhile. They have been on and off for 10 years. He’s a nice enough guy most of the time, though he can go off the deep end occasionally, which is why they keep splitting up.
Anyway, we had fun. We met some people. The host, K, is a twin, and we met his twin brother, who has a son who played hockey like my son, and just stopped playing. He was playing for the same team as my son’s last team. We had a lot in common, lol. He has a younger son who plays soccer. Nice man. I don’t think he was married, because there was no woman with him and his son.
I have to say, it was nice getting some appreciative looks from men my age, and to have then start up actual conversations too, lol. Been awhile!
K had an amazing fireworks display on the lake. He told us he makes a lot of his own. He was in demolition in the Marines. But he also spent, I’m gonna say, $1000 on fireworks. They seemed almost like professional grade at times. I tried to take pictures, but it’s hard to catch them. I tried to upload a video that was pretty good, but WP says I need to upgrade my account to upload video. You’ll just have to take my word for it, lol.
I’d forgotten how much fun the 4th is on the lake. It was a calm perfect night, about 70°. cruLots of boats cruising around checking out the different display. They were going off all around the perimeter of the lake, which is about 600 acres. I didn’t see much coming from my old neighborhood though, across the lake.
It wasn’t a late night, we got home about 10:45. I tried to write, but was tired and had had a couple of drinks, so just kind of stared at the page. Decided I’d get some sleep before I tried to write about it, lol. Next weekend there is a huge fireworks display on the Thames River in New London, where my boat slip is. That’s always fun to go to. My friend and I were planning it already, and her boyfriend may come too. If they are still talking, lol.
Another perfect day in store here. We actually need some rain, the forest fire danger is quite high. It’s been some time since we’ve had a soaking rain. But honestly, it never gets too dry here…and I love this weather. Being able to be outside all day, comfortably.
So nice to have a 3 day weekend. I’m going to make BBQ ribs for my son and I, and whoever else he invites, lol. There will probably be another round of fireworks on the lake tonight, since it’s the actual 4th. But most people had their parties yesterday, since we all have today off.
Hope you all have a wonderful day, a wonderful holiday if you’re in the US.
Love and light.
