...then you roast the mallow. Carefully "smoosh" it between two graham crackers lined with a slab of chocolate. Ohhhh a little taste of gooey, melted heaven. It doesn't get much better than SMORES on a warm summer evening after one helluva-fun-packed weekend. Only thing that would be better is if it was Saturday. What is it about a long weekend that always makes you wish for one more day? Would ONE more day really "scratch your itch" leaving you feeling ready to head back to work? I mean who would want to stay out late more night, sleep without setting an alarm one more morning, spend another 5 hours on the lake wake boarding and soaking up the intensely hot July sun? Who really would rather opt out of blow drying your hair and a fresh "coat" of makeup for a baseball cap and a pair of perfectly broken in Gap shorts? All those in favor blog "I!" All those opposed-what is wrong with you?
(Now friends, prepare yourself, I'm gonna get sappy!) I hope you had a fabulous long weekend full of friends and laughter. AND I hope you took the time to stop and enjoy the little things in life. You know. Little stuff like laughing at a chocolate faced child. Like marveling at the butterfly that won't fly away from your side. Like how great it is to catch up with friends inviting them and parting them with a bear hug. Like appreciating the bond between K-9 and human. Anywho, been thinking it's July and it's just time to stop and smell the roses. Hope you'll do/did the same.
Tomorrow-the sap gets turned off and I'll fill you in on the best $2.69 you'll spend this summer.
