It's an odd pair...a summer cold and the 4th of July. They don't mix in any sort of way. Believe me I tried this weekend, since I was lucky enough to get the worst summer cold I have ever had on Thursday right before our three day weekend began. Everyone is going to parties, celebrating with friends and good food and you are stuck feeling icky not wanting to do much of anything. Lucky me and lucky Canean too right? Because when one of you is down, the other half sort of gets dragged down too by default.
Not that we had any major plans this weekend, but we had planned on making it to a party thrown by a good friend and I had planned on sipping fancy cocktails all weekend because we were celebrating our freedom and the fact that we didn't have to be grown ups for three days.
Such is life I suppose...the whole weekend wasn't a bust, we managed to eat lunch with some friends (my snotty nose and all), went to the farmer's market, and we hung out by the pool on the 4th for a couple of hours, where I finally started reading the Game of Thrones series...and no I haven't watched one single episode on TV...I'm determined to read all of the books first!
I needed a good excuse to get kidnapped by a book again, and this weekend was just the reason I needed. I managed to only put makeup on once because that's the last thing you want to do when you are blowing your nose every five minutes and you feel like your head might explode at any given time...
What we did end up doing was taking several naps (which is one plus when one of you is sick, the other one gets to nap just as often ), we were in the bed by 9:30 every night (I know, pretty wild and crazy), and actually ended up getting to spend some really good time together even if I wasn't feeling my normal self.
And yesterday I felt a smidge better, so what did I do? I made three loaves of homemade bread...and this one guys was delicious! I can't wait to tell you about it later this week...holy cow.
So if I'm looking at the positives here, the weekend wasn't half bad considering the state that I was in. I might have been sipping tea at night while you were having a delicious cocktail, and I might have fallen asleep right before the fireworks began, but overall it was a pretty good weekend and the best part is I got to spend it with my favorite guy, who was super sweet to me the while I was under the weather, possibly being a little whiney...
Tell me what you ended up doing over the weekend? I hope it was an amazing 4th celebration and that you partied enough for the both of us since I was being pretty lame.
But hey, there's always next year right?
