A day off.
I took a bit of video of our grand finale. It isn't the best video of it, but imagine a waterfall of white sparks falling in the beginning. They do this every year. Sometimes it's white sparks falling and sometimes coloured. Yes, I do say they need to cut the trees back. I wanted to really see them as I remembered them when I was a child. If only there was a way they could set it up so it hangs out over the lake and the full effect is easier to see. It would save the trees underneath from getting burned every year too. It's a bit far out though and would be insanely expensive to try to build something and way to dangerous to properly manage.
Take a moment to have a bit of pity on the service industry and aviation industry workers today and every holiday though. There is no such thing as a long weekend for them. Thankless jobs (although pilots get a good bit of glory) with long hours and for the majority of people in the service industry, low pay.
You may notice a bit of a change in my sidebar. The Wrapped in Cables scarf is ready to go. It is priced at $3.50CAD and will be emailed to you in a Word Document. I will be off-line a good bit today though so you may not get a reply or the pattern from me until tomorrow. If you can't see it, you may need to go to the main page (Click on my blog title) until I figure out how to get it to show up on all my pages.
Thank you to anyone who purchases it and enables me to buy yarn, knitting books and supplies.
