My first day of summer holidays (yesterday) was spent indoors at the library, page numbering the appendices of my thesis, and cursing the university computers. I got that off of my plate right away so that the next little while could be spent on more enjoyable activities.
Today I was up bright and early to make the most of the beautiful day. I did a bunch of yard work, pulling every last weed, mowing the lawns, and ridding the yard of bug webs, etc.. I look forward to spending a lot of time enjoying the backyard this summer.
I headed downtown to meet my pal Shauna for lunch and a visit on her break. I got there a little early and wandered the farmers market for a bit. I ended up running into my sister and nephew :-) They were grabbing lunch so I got a drink and joined them for a while.
Lunch was at Gilmore's Place, and it was really good. I had the tuna sandwich on multi-grain. I especially liked that they served it with pickles.
Even though it was rippin' hot, we sat out in the sun and soaked it up. Summer is far too short here. I ran errands this afternoon and started prepping supper; I love productive days!
Do you live in a place with a short summer? How do you make the most of it? Do you have any time off this summer - plans?
