Today is France's national holiday, and we'll be celebrating by... well, doing as little as possible, really. After two days of running errands and doctor's appointments under the heat of a thousands suns (or one insanely strong sun), and an overnight trip tomorrow for a barbecue just outside of Paris, today will be a day of rest, and maybe some cleaning, 'cause this house is simply refusing to clean itself.
Last night we went to le lac d'orient to see the truly impressive fireworks show. I'd planned to video the show on my camera, but the batteries crapped out on my just before the show, in another moment in the string of bad luck I've been enduring lately. You'll just have to take my word for it, it was really great.
