Enjoying a holiday

As I said, last Thursday was a national holiday called "Children's Day." With the ENTIRE country on holiday, we knew we couldn't really go very far or do much on that day so we used it as a relaxing and restful day. We slept in very late, lazed around the rest of the morning and into the afternoon and then I did a small amount of housework. By the middle of the afternoon we were ready to see the outdoors. We got ready and embarked on a lovely walk through our neighborhood. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we had a really great time. We got to see the end of a "No-car event" where they block certain roads off and let the children draw on the streets with chalk and there are booths, etc that almost resemble the Art Walks in Hobe Sound. It was neat to see this side of their culture since I usually see the serious, educational, hard working side of the people. A week ago we had passed a coffee shop that was tucked away in between buildings and had wanted to try it out. Also, it was a brand of coffee that we used to buy for our Keurig :) It was a very peaceful and relaxing afternoon. Then we met up with our friend Jay for dinner and a movie. I can honestly say, a good night was had by all! :) And that, my dear friends, concludes our holiday. Stay tuned for next week when we celebrate Buddha's birthday on Tuesday with another national holiday :) laugh all you want but I get the day off...

Piglet sidled up to Pool from behind, "Pooh!" he whispered. 
"Yes, Piglet?" "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. 
"I just wanted to be sure of you."
