For those of you in the US and with gracious companies, this weekend may be extra long for you! So what are your plans?
Today I have the required picnic with my friends, which means sunshine (if the weather holds), eating too much, and playing corn hole (which will never not be funny). While it’ll be sad that I can’t spend the whole day writing (haha), it should be super relaxing. And all the food. Lots of vegetarian things, but also hot dogs and burgers and picnic salads and deviled eggs and *food coma*
Sunday will be relaxing, catching up on everything I was meant to do Saturday and grabbing a meal out with my mom.
Monday, while a good portion of the world is off, I’ll be working. At least part of the day. But also getting out (weather permitting) to enjoy some sunshine 🙂 and maybe sneak some writing in? I have some stories that need revised…and isn’t that what long weekends are all about?
In all honesty, I do want to take a moment to remember all of those who died serving our country. In my small town they hang small banners on the posts with faces of men who died in service to the country, all of young men who are from my area. It really brings home the impact and the sacrifice that was made. I hope we can all take the time while we gather with friends and family, to be thankful for those who have given their lives so that ours could be what they are today.
