No fireworks

I don't know what went wrong. We were at Borrelli's,same as last year, and yet no one else showed up to watch from out front. Last year there were dozens of people! The fireworks may have been cancelled due to rain, though it had stopped and cleared up by the time they were supposed to start, or maybe they moved them to a location in the park where you couldn't see them from Borrelli's. But for whatever reason Oldest Brother and I sat outside alone until we decided there was nothing to see and left. *sigh*

Aside from that however the day was rather good. Oldest Brother made it in to the Bronx in time to have lunch with me and the day passed peacefully.

After work we went to Barnes and Noble for a brief while. I got a Mercedes Lackey that I hadn't read yet, one of the Elemental Masters books.

The FWiB called before we got there and we talked in the car while Oldest Brother napped. The FWiB is reading Vorkoverse fanfiction. He's such a sweet fanboy! I am thinking of trying to write something just for him.

At Borrelli's we had a good meal, with a drink first. They make a nice gin and tonic.

After we left Borrelli's we came back to my place, stopping at Rite Aid first so I could pick up a birthday card for John, a wedding card for Sara and Fabian, cat food for Sybil, legal sized envelopes so I can send some book lists to the FWiB without folding them, and soap for me. Then came back here and fed the cats and did a few things on-line,with Oldest Brother, and then he left. I shall b going to be to read Jules de Grandin soon.

Gratitude List:

1. Oldest Brother.

2. The FWiB.

3. Fanfiction.

4. Good food.

5. Fun books.

6. Got shopping done.

    I worked from home today and spent most of it reading first one review book, and then, when I finished that, downloading and starting another. I also…
