Ahh, Memorial Day. The day people use to catch up on all the yard work they never have time for.
It’s also the day people spend driving home from wherever they went for the weekend. I just spent three hours on the road in what should have been just over an hour. And I spent it with idiots.
Last I checked the posted speed limit was not just a suggestion, it’s actually the law. I hear that you can get pulled over if you are driving faster than the speed limit. You’d never know it however. I spent most of the time on a stretch going 80 mph. The posted speed was 70 mph. I went over the speed limit because I was getting nasty looks from other drivers when I was going the posted speed. And yes I was in the right hand lane.
This weekend, at least here in MN, marks the beginning of summer. It could still snow but the chance of it actually happening is slim. For the last decade Memorial day has been a wash out. This one, it was supposed to rain but it didn’t. It was a beautiful weekend. I can’t remember the last time I had three days in a row of sunny and warm. It was great.
Too bad I spent the whole weekend painting the house. Not even the house really but just the pillars on the front of the house. I spent 7 hours scraping alone. It sucked. When I was finished painting I raked pine needles off the grass and watered the rest of the time. I have not yet had a chance to relax and I’m too high strung from all the work this weekend to enjoy the holiday. I should be sitting on the back deck with a few friends drinking a beer but all I want to do is go to sleep. I’m only posting because I noticed it has been a week since my last post and I just feel too damn guilty not to put something out here. I’ll come up with something better tomorrow I promise.
Happy Memorial Day!
I am glad that your weekend was sunny and warm! Ours has been colder, dreary, and rainy… Typical Memorial Day weekend in Wyoming from what I hear! LOL
I hope that you get some needed rest after all that hard work!
I hope you remembered to wear a hair shirt while you were doing all that work. There’s nothing like making the most of a holiday weekend.
We had sun for two of the days. It was nice – usually rains here too. I ate some weeds, burped some methane and had an apple or two. It’s a goat’s life.
The publicist got to go on a picnic with the male person. She was happy about that.
Happy Memorial Day! I think that next weekend you should sit on your porch admiring your paint job while drinking a nice cold one!
We just had rain today and of course today was the day I planned to bbq. I did manage to fit in grilling burgers between the rain showers.
SLColman, there is no rest for the wicked. I have to do it all over again next weekend.
Bill, hair shirt? Most of my shirts are covered in dog hair but I didn’t know there were actually shirts sold that way. Where do you get them?
Pricilla, I’m so glad all of you had a nice holiday weekend.
Sherri, I agree but next weekend I have to power wash the house and then stain and seal the siding. It might take longer than the weekend. By July 4th I ought to be able to have that cold one.
Lola, Sorry you had rain. We really need it here so I’m thinking if we all decided to have bbqs and wash our cars we might get some.

I am a chronic speeder. If you are in my way, I strongly suggest that you move to the slow lane on the right.
Our Memorial weekend was also nice, sunny and warm. I love it. Here in CT, the weather has been unpredictable but I think it’s going to be warm all throughout from now to the end of summer.
What a cheery little post. LOL. Here’s hoping your 4th of July is traffic-less, snow-less and paint-less!
