Three day weekends I believe should be mandatory. I always come back to work from a regular two day weekend feeling unsatisfied as how quickly Saturday and Sunday had gone by. But with three day weekends I feel accomplished and relaxed. Honestly though no matter how many days I have off it's still a little difficult getting back into work mode.
Niel and I stayed close to home because it's just too crowded to go away or visit any of the touristy spots such as museums. Plus Niel walked his brother's dog since my B-I-L was away. So Niel and I watched a lot of movies, Team America(had some funny scenes), Lucky 13(such poop) and the British version of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy(very good. Mostly matched by the American version). BBQ'd at Niel's mom's house and my parents, had yummy Indian food with Dave and Holly(always nice to see them). And happy that we have a good Indian restaurant in our town that not only we, but Niel's friends from his old neighborhood can enjoy also. We also ran a few errands, did some chores around the house. I crafted a bit and wrote, we found a cool sculpture park and tried Thai Chi. We thought it would be mostly help our flexibility. But wow did it kick out butts. We went back home and had a good two-three hour nap. I could have slept more. And I am not generally a person that likes to nap or sleep for too long. I feel like I miss out. The sculpture park's current theme is sports. We're curious to go back and see what their next theme will be in a few weeks. It's funny how many neat things are so close by. Plus there is a Costco right next door to peruse. We also tried Smores for the first time. Sorry to say I don't understand what the big fuss is about. I also tried Stove Top for the first time. I like it as stuffing mixed with other things, but not alone. Here are pics of the weekend. Please also go check out some of the pots I made.
