Summer Solstice

Yesterday/Today was/is the Summer Solstice - it happens at 12:42 or something so I'm not sure which tense to use. :) Also known as the 1st day of Summer, MidSummer, and the longest day/shortest night of the year. There are a billion meanings behind it dating back to BC, all over the world. Google it and you'll see what I mean. :)

Some people celebrate, others pass it by without a second thought. I usually choose to celebrate in my own small way, which I did. It's a spiritual thing for me and not something I choose to share since A) it would be hard to explain and B) I choose not to. :)

But yesterday was a good day all in all. I went out to lunch with friends and had a great time - these people are nuts and I feel right at home. :) Next time, we're getting cocktails and then they'll *really* not want to put us in the middle of the room. ;)

After work, I had a few errands to do and struck out on all of them. I stopped at the Library to pick up a book and it was checked out. I stopped at Home Depot to get something and they didn't have it. Then I stopped at the Cigar Store to pick up Glen's gift and they were closed. I gave up after that and came home. :) I'll try again today, since I need to get Glen a gift before the party this weekend. The other things can wait. :)

I'm working on getting the firepit area priced out to be made into a patio. I have a few calls in to people that I know do that kind of work and am waiting to hear back from them. I plan on getting a few of those curved benches to add to it and maybe a few solar lights. That will look nice and turn the pit into my favorite area on the property I'm sure.

But, I have another day of work in front of me so I have to get through that before anything else!
