After it set I was alone so I lit two candles. One is sentimental to me because my daughter painted a red dragon on it a few years ago so burning it reminds me of her. Then I danced around until the candles blew out.
Then around 11 PM we had an exciting thunderstorm with some wicked cool lightning. One flash was so bright I was blinded for a few seconds. Then the rain hit. It made me drowsy listening to it so I went to bed early and fell asleep during the last few flashes. Lovely.
We also planted a mulberry seedling that the neighbor gave us. I waited until the moon was waning to plant it. It will shade the parking area someday and provide fruit for the tanagers and for us. I also wanted to block out the dead tree in the neighbor's yard.
