My day off.

I had the day off from work. I don't think, in the almost five years I've worked at the store, that I've had a Friday off unless I was going out of town for some reason or another. Or maybe a birthday or anniversary.

So having today, just a normal summer Friday, off from work was a treat.

I managed to make the most of it...
  • I started the day with an hour long walk with Gracie. We went to Manito Park, my favorite place in the world to walk...
  • I started the laundry when I got home - I proceeded to get four loads washed. Everything dried outside on the line, except for the last load, which is still out there sucking up the summer sunshine.
  • Kyler and I tackled our front sidewalk - which has lately started sprouting weeds and hadn't had a good cleaning at all this year. It ended up being a huge job that grew as it went along. We ended up edging the whole lawn too and laying the extra sod we pulled up on our bare patches. Too bad I showered before we did all that work. I was sweaty and dirty and exhausted by the time we finished.
  • Asia and I went to the library and the grocery store together. I bought $53 worth of groceries for $19. I've become quite the sale hound and coupon clipper... just trying to make our $$$ stretch a little further...
  • I started meal planning for our annual trip to the beach... planning delicious meals for vacation is one of my favorite things to do. I love feeding people.
  • The kids and I cleaned the house - top to bottom.
  • I started reading some of my books from the library... while sitting in the sunshine on the deck and drinking lemonade. Isn't summer grand?

Tomorrow we're tackling leg two of our journey on the Trail of the Coeur D'Alene's. We're planning an 18 mile ride...

Happy Friday, everyone. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Smooch you all!
