Ahhh, I love when I can just relax for a whole day or week. Do whatever, whenever, however.
Well, my day started like any other……..NO, not really! My goodness—I turn on the TV and there’s a FIRST 48 marathon on one channel along with a TWILIGHT ZONE marathon on another channel.
So NOT like any other day. I love TV during a holiday! I live for these marathon days—especially shows I really like. So my day’s off to a good start!
Next—off to the spa to get my eyebrows ripped. Yeah, it was open on a major holiday! WHY? I don’t know. It was the ONLY spa/salon open today for some reason. I was in and out in 5 minutes!
Dashed back home to my telly marathons while I cleaned the ENTIRE house. Loved that I finally made time to do it! I can visually see the carpet now! Now let’s see how long I can keep it looking this way.
Now, what will the food of today bring……Well, I didn’t have to cook today! Not that I would have minded, but with all the people barbecuing today, all I had to do is pick a place and make a plate.
As you can tell, I just had a basic barbecue dinner with both peach AND blueberry cobbler. I always say, when you can’t decide between two or more desserts—just get one of each and save yourself the headache of deciding. That’s how I make it easy on myself.
As for the rest of the evening, I’ve decided to stay indoors this year away from the firecracker madness. For the most OBVIOUS reason that I prefer to keep my fingers and toes intact today along with the rest of my body parts. I will be ducking under tables in my home just in case a bottle rocket, bomb, or anything worse makes its way through a window.
After dark, I’ll just be wishing this day would be OVER with already so I can get some sleep in peace and quiet without feeling like I’m in a war zone.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, make sure to grab yourself some good barbecue cooking from everybody’s house you know! If you get an invite, say YES to everyone, go house-hopping, and then go home and make your own barbecue dinner.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Always keep both your bomb disposal suit and bullet-proof vest on until the evenings ‘fun’ festivities are over.
