I continue to stand by my conviction that chamomile is always going to taste like chamomile, so why buy designer jeans to dig in the garden? (My personal preference is bulk loose leaf to mix and match.)

But a bag of Teekanne’s chamomile (I have no idea from where or whence it came) came in handy last night when I was in a dog-tired stupor from a week’s worth of fireworks-induced sleep-terruptions. I paired it with a bag of my beloved Tazo Glazed Lemon Loaf and could feel my neck muscles un-knot as I sipped.

We had fireworks here throughout the Canada Day weekend, with accompanying sleep-terruptions. (Who thinks it’s fun to set off fireworks at 2:30 A.M.?) I hope you sleep better this week!

I think the neighborhood kids’ supply has finally fizzled out—that or I was so tired I slept through last night’s round. (Little village municipal ordinance that allows ’em is about to expire, so maybe…)

Apparently we are surrounded by people who can afford the really big stuff….there have been fireworks for days and it lasted until after midnight on the Fourth! Thankfully, Sam the King of Dogs does not even seem to notice fireworks. I am tired of being awakened by them, though.

I guess people want to celebrate this year, which is understandable. (Just not in the middle of the night!)

Ashmanra, I’m glad your dog isn’t bothered by the fireworks. My friend’s dog gets really upset.
