As happens every year a couple days into July, Kula becomes more clingy than ever. She doesn’t like most loud noises, pops, the dryer buzzer, or typical bangs and she hates firecrackers. So she’s always underfoot and needy for the first week of July. Fireworks are exploding right now and she’s in the bedroom in her usual place (under the bed) with Henrik. He’s watching Independence Day and I’m making homemade chocolate butterscotch ice cream. We had the usual 4th of July bbq and went for a nice walk at the beach. Pawka is sleeping through the whole affair. If you got to blow up any signs with your M80s, hope you had fun.
