who needs goals on a holiday weekend?

Not me!

I did many things I thought I should below, but failed to follow through on a couple.

On the other hand, I slept in every morning. I read a whole novel start to finish in one sitting. I watched the Tour de France prologue. I’ve made huge progress on the colorwork sock I’m knitting (which is secret test knitting so can’t be shown for a couple more weeks). I ate most of a pint of blueberries for breakfast yesterday. I colored our sugar for the Fourth of July. I watched the best fireworks display I’ve seen since moving down here while lying next to the Lincoln Memorial. We went swimming and picked the first of our yard-long beans. I saw a baseball game with a tremendously exciting ninth inning. We watched a movie I’ve wanted to see for ages since it was out in theaters. I drank tamarind soda. We witnessed an amazing traditional Mexican ceremony at the Folklife Festival. I bought a Christmas cd. I got a dragon tattoo. We ate pizza. I played in sprinklers.

I don’t know… Seems like a pretty great way to spend a weekend, doesn’t it?

I hope yours was equally nice!

Pix of the tattoo?

Is a “dragon tattoo” like a 4th degree burn? Or does the dragon dip her claws in various inks and gently pinch you?

We re-arranged things in our guest bedroom, although there is still work to be done placing the stuffed animals.

@RR: I suspect you’ll be disappointed to hear that it’s just a temporary tattoo.

@GK: I suspect you’ll be unsurprised to hear that it’s just a temporary tattoo.

But it is still of a very cool looking pink dragon!
