Weekend Plans Post: The Summer Begins
A few years back, Colorado failed to have a summer. Oh, we had a June, July, and August. It just rained. Like, every day. It was cold. Most years I put my hoodies away and I only need to keep one in the guest bedroom closet for the off chance I go up to the mountains or out to a night baseball game. That year, I dug out a couple from the storage bin because I usually needed one when sitting in the basement after sundown. It was regularly in the 70’s during the day which meant that it was regularly in the 60’s (and sometimes 50’s(!)) at night.
So far this year, we’ve had it rain every day and I’m vaguely irritated that I put all of my hoodies away.
It’s still only May, I tell myself. (Heck, the Stanley Cup still going on.)
We have a day, here or there, where I say “man, this weekend is the weekend where I’m going to set up the air conditioner!” but then it rains again. Then I’m in the basement again wearing my ragged hoodie. And now I’m wondering if this summer is going to be another no-show.
Given that last weekend was the big Memorial Day weekend that was chock full of events, friends, shared meals, and miscellaneous get-togethers, this weekend is the “maybe recuperate a little” weekend. A trip to the various PetSmarts and Whole Foods for the weird one-off things and the usual haunts for the usual errands. And, maybe, Maribou and I will even have a date on Saturday night.
So… what’s on your docket?
