Actually, we really didn’t have a vacation this summer. We stayed home and did our usual daily routine all summer. We didn’t have the funds to go on any vacations or “daycations” so our fun times happened in our own town and the one on the other side of the freeway. For Labor Day, I had hoped to sleep in, however my internal clock wouldn’t let me. Normally, during the week, I wake up at 5:30 AM. This morning, I was able to sleep in one hour past that. After a morning of relaxing and then tidying up, we thought we’d go to Springfield. A mural of “The Simpsons” had recently been painted and the anniversary of the show had been celebrated at the mural last week.Just down the street from the mural, is Sweety’s Yogurt Shop which also celebrates Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa & Maggie. We had hoped to buy some yogurt, however they were closed. A lot of businesses were closed in Springfield. If we had been in our town, yogurt shops would have been open. I’m not complaining though. Kudos to local businesses that let their employees enjoy the holiday. Our outing ended with driving to the top of Kelly Butte, from where you can see all of Springfield. . Our outing ended with a stop for a Slurpee because it was so hot, and our car currently has the 2/55 air conditioning (2 open windows/55 mph). Now we’re tucked back into our cooler home, getting ready to eat dinner (and pack the leftovers for Kevin’s lunches), and thinking about the beginning of the new school year.
