Are you going away for the weekend? Are you planning on blowing a wad of money?
We are not planning on doing that. There are so many free things that we can do. A number of close by cities(20-30 minute drive) are having Memorial Day parades. They are free to watch.
We could go up to Olcott on Lake Ontario to the park and have a picnic lunch that we would make. Or we could go to Canalside(which we love) in downtown Buffalo and just enjoy Lake Erie while sitting on a bench. That is all free. Since we have an almost full tank of gasoline, we won’t even have to buy that to go.
There are so many other free things that we could do in the area too. Just google your hometown or home city weekend schedules and I am sure you could find some free things too. You don’t always have to spend money to have a great time.
We will also make a trip today to our public library and take out a few movies to watch one of the days this weekend and a couple of good books to read next week. Most likely movie day will be Saturday since it is supposed to rain.
I also hope that my son and West will come for breakfast on Saturday or Sunday. I make that with food we already have in our stockpile.
But the best thing that brings back memories from so many Memorial Day weekends is having a cookout. Hubby will grill some strip steaks and I will roast some veggies. We will enjoy our dinner and then depending on the weather, we may have our first fire of the season in our outdoor fireplace.
So it will be a fun and no spend weekend for us! How about you?
I hope all of you have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!
