independence day weekend planning
posted by soe 1:33 am

It’s a long weekend, and I’m thinking this is what I might do with it, at least partially:

  • Spend lots of time outside. Eighties and sunny in D.C. in July is a gift.
  • Work in the garden. Lots of rain=lots of weeds. Plus, it may be time to pull out the peas and most of the spring greens.
  • Knit on my shawl.
  • Visit the library. I’m thinking while I’m there, I should print out the pattern for my shawl so I can stop being tethered to a device while working on it.
  • Drink strawberry daiquiris.
  • Bake a cherry pie (Billy boy, Billy boy).
  • Go down to the Lincoln Memorial to watch the fireworks. Last year, some blowhard was making a speech down there and we boycotted the event altogether.
  • Swim. Monday looks ideal for spending the better part of it lounging in the water.
  • Chat with friends. It’s our monthly video chat with the friends who’ve all moved away.
  • Go to a birthday party. (Maybe. It’s for one of Rudi’s friends, and that means strangers and small talk. I might just send him without me — a true return to pre-pandemic socializing.)
  • Watch sports. This is always a great weekend for that, with Tour de France bike riding, Wimbledon tennis, and baseball.
  • Catch up on sleep.

What’s on your to-do list for the weekend?
