Our plans for the long weekend? Yard work! Our backyard is in total disarray. Everything needs to be trimmed, and weeded. We need to bring the lawn furniture out of the shed, dig out the BBQ and put the canopy back on the gazebo. There are weeds EVERYwhere, and I do mean everywhere. They’ve even taken over the patio. We definitely have many hours of yard work ahead of us before this place is in shape for the summertime, and the pool parties and BBQs that I am looking forward to.
Ten years ago my idea of celebrating the May Two-Four weekend was a camping trip with twelve or so of my closest friends and a pick-up truck worth of beer. Now my plans are for yard work and a quiet family BBQ. Ah, the domesticated mom-life.
I have to admit, I am actually excited about taking the BBQ out and firing it up for the first time this year. My husband hates to cook, but will gladly barbecue. I produce various meats and he grills them. It’s an excellent arrangement that gives me the occasional much needed break from the kitchen.
HAPPY LONG WEEKEND! What are you folks planning on doing?
