Extra Long Weekend
The dog days of summer are upon us. It might be time for vacations and summer camp for some but for me it's a time to chill. Since Independance Day fell on a Friday Janet took Monday off and we made a long weekend of it. Man, was it nice. We got to visit with friends on the fourth. We actually went to two parties but they were easy, laid back events. Very nice. Since fireworks are now leagal in Georgia lots and lots of people where shooting them off. Yes, it was noisy but it seemed most people quit between 10 and 11. We even saw some neighbors sweeping the mess of papers that the fireworks leave behind. I am very happy about that. Luckily Dori,who is normally upset by fireworks and thunder didn't seem to have any issues with the noise. Lucky dog.
Saturday found us at the drive-in with a bunch of friends. We saw "Tammy" which seemed like it would be okay because it has a great cast. It wasn't. Not that it mattered, it was a lot of fun anyway.
Sunday we had some other friends over for brunch. We haven't seen them in weeks so we spent most of the day just visiting and catching up. It was such a treat to spend the day just relaxing with these friends.
Monday afternoon found us at the pool in Grant Park. I had never been there before but I will be back. I was a great swimmer when I was younger. My friends and I practically lived at the community pool when we were kids. Now I looked at the lap lane on this Olympic size pool and thought "I need to work up to that." My once sinewy body is now looking and feeling more and more like the 50 year old body that it is so it might be a really good thing to strive towards. Besides, I love to swim, it's the only exorcize where you don't sweat.
How was your weekend?
