Long Weekend by Susan L.
The Canada Day holiday is this weekend. There will be tides of people heading north to cottages, favorite camping spots and countless barbeques. There's a seasonal trailer park behind my house full of people from Newfoundland. I'm pretty sure Saturday will be a rollicking good time. I enjoy the music but thankfully the owners don't let the noise go on much past 11:30. (Long gone are the days of partying until the wee hours of the morning!) I am debating hosting a spur of the moment barbeque and bonfire for a few friends. It would be a bit of a scramble getting everything ready. We'll see. Really, I'm just not fancying spending the holiday weekend on my own. Fred the cat (renamed Pumpkin) is good company but I don't think an open fire and roasting marshmallows would agree with his fur. Besides, there's still a few fireflies around that I'd love to share. "Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fatted calf with hatred." Prov 15:17
