Despite not having major plans for the long holiday weekend; I am enjoying it, immensely. Perhaps taking Friday afternoon off for a massage got the whole thing off to a good start. If that's the case, I will have to look into getting a massage prior to every holiday. Twist my arm, right?
Anyhoodle, I spent yesterday doing things around the house. I finally got my red wicker chair repainted to a lovely sea blue...
...which was the finishing touch on the porch. It is now open for Porch Night season , which, conveniently, begins tonight!
After I finished my chores, Boomer Dog and I headed to the park for a walk. The Herons were back, so I decided to drop Boomer back at the house before returning to the park with my camera; I was determined to finally catch a shot of one of the birds fishing. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, but, I got a few good shots, regardless.
I also ran into Erin and Kristi, who were at the park with their dogs. As an aside, Erin asked me why I no longer refer to them as The Lesbians on this blog. I told her I worried that it seemed insensitive, despite the fact that they are the ones who insisted on it to begin with. She pee-shawed me. Seriously, pee-shaw. We agreed to a compromise; I shall now refer to them as The Newlyweds. She pushed for Lesbian Newlyweds, but Kristi talked her down from the ledge.
I love my friends.
And, speaking of friends, we are having a few over tonight for tacos on the porch. I'm really looking forward to returning to a "normal" summer of entertaining and this is the first step. What a great way to kick off the holiday.
Random park photos, 'cuz that's how I roll.
