Joy: Summer Time

A day late, but I was one of the lucky few to have today off from work. And thank goodness, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to do everything I hoped to this weekend.

After an extremely long/frustrating MBA meeting I didn’t get on the road until 7 pm. I was hoping this would mean traffic was light, but no such luck. You can only move so many vehicles around Mille Lacs Lake at one time.

Saturday morning I went for a walk with my mom and brother, Saturday afternoon I visited with a friend running 3 miles, checking out Red Raven Cafe and Cuyuna Brewing, and then headed up to another friend’s cabin. I was able to watch fireworks from their boat, make a quick late night visit Moonlight Bay, and recovered with brunch at the Warf Sunday morning. Then it was back to family time, and a good night’s sleep.

I’m so thankful to have Monday off to make the most of the weekend, I’ll leave “up north” around noon, do some grocery shopping and prepare for the weekend, and just might visit one more friend Monday night. Tuesday will be spent outside having fun during the day, but I’d like to be settled back in my apartment in the early evening. Wednesday I really do have to return to work.

How did you spend the weekend? Did you save enough vacation time to take this whole week off? Or are you fitting in what you can with the time you were given?

  1. Your holiday weekend plans sound wonderful! That is great that you had Monday off so could make it an extra long weekend! I did not have Monday off and didn’t take it off as my other 2 coworkers had plans to be off and Phil had to be at work on Monday so I decided to just go in as well. It was a short day as the financial markets closed early so I got to leave around noon. We were at my parents lake home at Battle Lake Friday night through Sunday afternoon which was a lot of fun!

    • I was shocked I was approved for vacation on Monday, hooray for lake homes, I can’t image having just the minneapolis lakes as outdoor options, they are good, but just not as good.
