It was after 2am but the time we got in last night. The cat had me up at 6am. We spent most of the day scrambling around to:
- wake up and get our shit together
- tidy up around the house
- shop for random last minute necessities
Eventually, as always happens when you host a group of people in your home, we hit the jump off point. No additional work was going to get done and it was impossible to become more prepared than we already were.
Our company came and we got to hang out for a while. We did a few tarot readings, hung out on the deck, had drinks and snacks. Later, we barbecues burgers and are them with salads and potato chips. Dessert was fruit and cake.
Finally, the fireworks started. Living high up in a highrise has its advantages. The fireworks happen right in front of our balcony and at the exact same height. We just look straight out mostly, sometimes slightly down or up depending on what’s going on.
All in all, I was really glad we had people over after the fact, but the timing was so complicated. We were mentally and physically tired and having the added responsibilities didn’t help. That said, having guests in our house did. It felt nice to be able to relax at home and with loved ones. It was a really happiness boost to have our little party.
How did you celebrate Canada Day this year?
