memorial day weekend planning
posted by soe 1:04 am

It’s a holiday weekend here honoring those who’ve sacrificed their lives in the protection of the U.S. and unofficially kicking off the summer season. Here in D.C., outdoor pools open for the season (on weekends only right now; daily after school lets out) and outdoor films and concerts start occurring more regularly.

Here’s what I’m hoping the next three days include:

  • Spending time at the pool.
  • Finally dealing with the clothing switch. (The last time I planned it, high temps dipped back down to March averages and all incentive was gone. But there are several 90s in the next week, so I absolutely no longer care about pants.)
  • Harvesting peas and strawberries and spending time in the garden.
  • Listening to some baseball.
  • Drinking strawberry daiquiris.
  • Reading outside. (I started Caraval earlier today and am loving it so far, for you y.a. fantasy fans.)
  • Backing up my phone. (It’s really irritating how much space it feels it needs in order to operate at peak efficiency, but it’s probably not a bad thing to have a second copy of my photos.)
  • Painting my fingernails. (I did my toes the other day and pulled out the bottles for my hands, but decided to wait until after I did my volunteer shift yesterday, since I wasn’t sure how hands-on it would be.)
  • Picking up some holds at the library.
  • Baking something. My audiobook mentioned handpies last night, so maybe some of them…
  • Swapping out the duvet cover for a lightweight one.
  • Seeing a friend.

How about you? What’s on your to-do list for the weekend? Is it all barbecue and beach trips? Sleeping until afternoon? Parades?
