Enjoying the Day

July 2nd, 2011

Here in the United States we will celebrate the Fourth of July this weekend (the 4th is Monday but most folks will celebrate all weekend long). Take a cue from Dexter and spend some time relaxing in the great outdoors this weekend. Spent time your garden, visit a park or botanical garden near you, go for a walk, bike ride or a hike, do something in to get outside and enjoy the season you happen to be in.

We’ll be spending our weekend cooking out, watching fireworks, hanging out with friends, working in the garden and on our little camper. Of course we’re self-employed so we’ll spend some time doing real work as well as there’s rarely an actual day off for us.

If you’re an American how do you celebrate the Fourth? If you’re from another country how do you typically celebrate holiday weekends?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
