#MicroblogMondays: Fired up
So it was a bit of a shock when dh & I moved to the suburbs -- where the backyards are small and the houses densely packed together -- and discovered our neighbours liked to set off their own fireworks displays in the street outside our house and in their backyards on the Victoria Day & (especially) Canada Day long weekends. A little too close for comfort, perhaps, particularly it was dry or a bit windy...
But fireworks were still a special Victoria Day/Canada Day thing. Until recently. We had fireworks going off on the street behind our house on the August long weekend -- which woke me up just as I was drifting off to sleep. :p And fireworks again Saturday night and last night -- BOOM! BOOM!! like a cannon -- which had me levitating about a foot off the couch. No doubt there will be more tonight.
Maybe I'm turning into a grumpy old lady, but since when did fireworks become an "every long weekend (especially in the summer)" kind of thing??
