My first post was earlier today, but I realized I'd forgotten to wish everyone a happy July. Happy festival month! In Japan, people are gathering in yukata to tread the streets of their towns in search of fireworks and takoyaki; in the US and Canada we're doing the same, cooking out in honor of -- hey wait a minute. What the heck, I just looked out the window and noticed an enormous freak storm. No joke, Georgia (which is in a drought) just now has a sudden flash thunderstorm in honor of the 4th.
Oh well. I guess we'll be cooking in today. Glad I have a veranda for sparkler purposes!
This post is actually in honor of the new Relay for Life skin by Fleur, named Emma. Please note the soft, pretty eyes and mauve lips, hiding so cutely beneath the fluffy mop of Calico hair.
