Happy Independence Day!
It's been a rough and tumble week since getting back from vacation last Saturday. The trip itself was lovely, but the upper part of my back, shoulders, and upper chest broke out upon my return. I don't know if this was due to the sunblock I was slathering on during my vacation (Neutrogena, generally very good stuff), an allergy to the something in the hotel, or an outbreak of prickly heat, but I kept me irritable and out of sorts for most of the week. This has kept me away from the keyboard to write.
It's been a quiet, close-to-home Fourth of July. We had friends over, and I grilled some beef kabobs. It was all a little more trouble than I wanted after being cranky all week, but it all came out fine, better than fine. It was nice together with people I haven't probably been seeing enough of lately.
I'll write a little more about some of the high points of our vacation later this weekend.
