It always surprises me when I hear people say Sunday is their favorite day of the week. Sure, I love the relaxation Sunday brings, but it’s not that relaxing when you have to think about the week ahead of you.

That’s why I’m totally ecstatic for today. Memorial Day weekend means the start of summer. It means I finally have a truly relaxing Sunday. Plus, it means it’s the first day off most of us have had since New Year’s. Isn’t that sad? (It’s even sadder when you realize on New Year’s Day that you won’t have off until the end of May.)

Like you, there are plenty of things on my to-do list for today:
- Gardening. Lots and lots of gardening.
- Cleaning of the house
- Cleaning of the windows
- Washing of the car
- Washing of the dog
- Painting of the trim

But who am I fooling? I’m thinking my day is going to contain more of:
- Sleeping in
- Eating
- Drinking
- Bonfire

After all, it’s not too often we get a long weekend, so why not enjoy it to the fullest?

P.S. On a serious note, it’s important to remember why we have a long weekend. Thank you to all those who fought so we could actually have lazy Sundays.
