July 4

We celebrated Independence Day in the time-honoured American tradition, with a barbecue at the park. A whole bunch of families in our extended group of friends go to the same park every year, where an egg toss and softball game are also on the agenda. I didn't partake in either of these strenuous activities; I sat in the shade, knitted, and sketched. The forecast was for 108°F (42°C) but it was at least 10° cooler than that and we had a nice breeze, so it was really a very pleasant way to spend the afternoon.
