tonight

Tonight I am going to sit on our patio with husband.
And I am going to sit very very VERY close to this candle so that the mosquitoes do not bite the crap out of my legs. Or arms. Or crotch. Don't even get me started.
Tonight I am going to play fetch with my dog.
And breathe a sigh of relief.
It's the weekend. And I don't have to go back to work until July 5th.
Hip hip hooray!

  7. NICE long weekend. Nice.

    I have to work today, Monday, and Tuesday - then I'm off for 12 days. No big deal.

    I heard if you put a dryer sheet in your pocket, it will keep bugs away.

  8. Long weekends are the best. Hope that you have a fantastic start to your weekend, and the bugs stay far,far away.

  17. Nice looooooooong weekend! I've wondered what kind of days off people are going to get in the States, with the 4th being on a Wednesday. They should really schedule the holiday better :)
    Lindsay from Trial by Sapphire said vanilla extract is a natural bug repellent- and I just got a natural moisturizer that has willow bark, and it smells a lot like bug repellent... don't know if it works, though, because bugs don't really bite me. I've got bad blood!
    Have an amazing FIVE day weekend!!

  18. um sounds fantastic and i'm jealous.
    i'm just happy to get the 4th off. so jealous.
    mosquitoes are everywhere.
    bc my husband has diabetes i swear his blood is so sugary that he steps out for one second and has 10 mosquitoes on him.
    have a fun weekend.

  28. Ahhh I'm jealous!! Off until the 5th! Actually, I guess I shouldn't be, since I'm off the 5th and 6th :) Enjoy your time with hubby and Sherm and hopefully the candle will work for you, it never really does for me... or maybe I just don't light enough of them!

  45. So I have almost , like I said almost decided that I might have to close my eyes when I see Sherman because it makes me miss our chocolate lab. I get all snot nosed and teary eyed and that's not good for this funny girl. But it maybe short lived. But I still love ya. I hope your crotch repels the biting bugs. Have a good weekend

  46. Sounds like you are going to have a fun night!!

  47. sooo.. one time, we were all sitting round the campfire.. and an ember jumped outta the fire and literally landed RIGHT ON my crotch.. so now i have that burn scar.. as a reminder...

    you are not alone, obviously (:

    ReplyDelete
  48. Mosquitoes are evil little creatures. Tonight...I will be sitting on the porch with my husband,too. With really, REALLY cold drinks :) *cheers*

    Have a great long weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  49. That's so awesome that you're off until July 5th! Yeah! I hope you did a happy dance! Mosquitoes drive me crazy! Whenever we go camping I come back looking like the mumps lady. My legs get tore up from them. I hope you have a wonderful time with your hubby and Sherman tonight. I can't say the word "fetch" in here or I'll end up with 3 very crazy dogs barking at me and demanding that I play fetch with them outside even if today is only 113 degrees HOT outside. Crazy people live in AZ. That explains a lot. :)

  70. My favorite kind of evening. And mosquitoes...they might be the death of me. Crazily enough...I can relate to the crotch-bitten story. I literally have to spray every single inch of my body in bug spray before even trying to go outside.
