A Bit of a Damper

I grilled chicken I'd done up in a Greek marinade, plus homemade tazitki, and mum made an apricot custard tart. Then Nin and I walked to the edge of the canyon to see a bit of the fireworks over in Hurricane. And then we watched Iron Man. So far, so good. It was late, I hear more fireworks being set off, then shouts, I get out of bed, look out the bathroom window and the hillside's on fire. Thankfully, all the surrounding homes got out hoses and the people who'd set it on fire above had shovels, and it was out out before it got out of control. The fire department finally arrived and hosed it down for good measure. Scared the crap out of me. And I'm very tied today.
