It's Holiday Time... least in all parts of Buttercupland. I spent the greater part of last week -- and it wasn't so great -- in one of the windowless conference rooms at work, conducting a set of interviews. We did seventeen interviews -- of at least an hour each -- in the last four days. I feel like a missed a week of my life, though it does feel good to have the biggest part of this project completed.  

I am so glad it's Saturday morning. I've had a good night's sleep and have an interesting, but not overly filled, day ahead and have no plans for tomorrow. Iced coffee and the New York Times top the weekend schedule. I can celebrate iced coffee -- and will -- several times this weekend. But I am also open to suggestions. If you could declare a holiday, in Buttercupland, or anywhere else, what holiday would you declare? And why? The holiday that most piques my fancy will take place in August in Buttercupland, in honor of you! In the interim, let's have a big glass of iced coffee with lots of milk, and since we don't have to count calories, a brownie or blueberry muffin.

Tomorrow morning is a holiday, when I'll announce the winner of the latest Blogspark giveaway. Have a great  Saturday.

I hope you enjoy your weekend to the fullest. It sounds like you deserve a celebration!

Y'know, I've never, ever tried iced coffee, with or without milk. It sounds wonderful!
Sleeping in, even only on ONE heaven!

Well, as a Washingtonian, I'd have an iced latte'-no matter that it's left over coffee in my pot, with lowfat milk and Ice! (My dad used to make iced coffee's back even in the 60's-a southern thang from his time in the navy in Florida-I USED to think it was just plain weird! Now I love it!)

Hmmmm, a Holiday that I get to create? Wowza! Fun! How about "Indulgence Day." A day where you get to do EVERYTHING you want and none of the things you have to do!

I love iced coffee too - kind of cools you down on a hot day which we have had a lot of.

17 interviews for one job? So how is the economy in New York?

Tomorrow is my sleep in day and I am looking forward to it!! I'd love a holiday where you could just play games with your kids and not have to think about anything else. Not how many emails you have, not all the work you have to do, nothing. Just a free day of playing games. That would rock.

How about a "do nothing day"

I'd like a holiday where the weather is like it was yesterday, iced or hot coffee on a shaded bench, and one of those lemon things from Starbucks (I do hate the new calorie count on the menu law, now I can only eat those lemon things in Buttercupland)

Lemon Ices however are within limits. Busy for the next two Sundays. Saturday is an option, and evenings are fine. On vacation- finally!

I wandered this way at Chatty's suggestion .... soooo glad to have done so! :)
Color me "hooked" ... on iced coffee, as well!
My "holiday" vote (hands down!) goes to Country Dreaming's "Do Nothing Day."

en-JOY your Today :)

I first tasted ice coffee on the cruise and unexpectedly enjoyed it....don;t often see it over here though...maybe I don't look for it !! never that warm !!
As for a do nothing day...that would win my vote..just a lazy day with a book lovely warm sunshine, time to have a liitle nap just when I want it....What bliss
Love Sybil xxx
