Three-day weekends are my favorite kind of weekends.
I love those all-too-rare holidays that give us an “extra” day on the already too-short weekends; even if I do pay the rest of the week by being confused what the day is. Reaching the first of September ushers in a long weekend – Labor Day. For some, this holiday means a getaway or picnics and basking in the final rays of summer’s warm sunshine and taking advantage of that by boating or swimming. Unofficially, it’s the “end” of summer, to me, all this marks is a revelation over how quickly the year has gone. I am flummoxed. What happened to February? May? July 4th? I’m sure that it’s only yesterday I was watching New Year’s Eve and keeping an eye on the clock spindle inch ever closer to the midnight mark that would ring in 2013.Long Weekends #FWarchives Click To Tweet
Checking the calendar proves differently – we’ve reached summer’s end.
With a week full of shopping trips, garden produce and temperatures soaring into the nineties with (bonus!) unbearable humidity, I’m more than ready for a relaxing weekend. My weekend will be all about a get-together with family; late nights watching favorite TV shows (hello, Once Upon a Time and NCIS!) and Hallmark movies, good food; more family, church; and of course, reading. After Friday, the weekend has a cooler forecast which will also make for a more pleasant outdoor weather unlike the stifling heat and is one of the best signs that the crisp air of autumn is just around the corner. Or that is what I am wishing for.
What about all of you – how have you or will you be celebrating, this a bonus weekend day? What are some of your fave ways to spend, long, “lazy” weekend days?
However or wherever you spend it, I hope you have a sunny, wonderful time! Happy day. ♥
