Ahhh Memorial Day Weekend. A lovely three day break from the ever redundant workplace and a chance for me to sleep past 6:30am! Is it weird that I long for these weekends with all of my being, despite the fact that I had a week long vacation only two week ago? I sure hope not. It will be good to break out of my schedule, spend time with friends, and welcome summer to Louisville (and summer it is - 90 and humid already).
I do have quite a few things happening this weekend. First of all, it is the traditional opening of the pool! Which means the snack bar, which means patty melts. My mom and I always split one opening weekend and since the pool had a soft opening last weekend, we were there ready to eat! They are DELICIOUS and so greasy, but oh so good. Remember how I told you I have no willpower over food? Case in point. Beef, cheese, grilled onions. Good. And I feel like my tan is fading from FL so I will probably be at the pool this weekend trying to keep up the tan.
This weekend is also a big weekend over at my parents house. Every year on Memorial Day Weekend my mom makes a gabazillion jars of her homemade strawberry jam. I am usually in charge of removing the little green parts from like four gallons of strawberries. But I usually get a jar or five, so it's all worth it. Yummm some homemade rolls with fresh strawberry jam on them...nothing better. Well, maybe a patty melt, but really they are on different playing fields.
So welcome back summertime, I have missed you!
