I can't think of a day much better than any Saturday of a three day weekend, it's really hard to beat. So much potential, so much to accomplish, and a whole three days, not the measly two we are used to. 

But, as Ferris Bueller has wisely informed us, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

We seized the opportunity to enjoy a little relaxation time before we broke into our to do list. This may be why our renovation is taking a lot longer than it should, but it's also what lets us be normal people while renovating, rather than DIY Psychos. 

What did we do to enjoy the day? Two words, urban hammock. 

We may have but one tree in our yard, but we also have a large brick wall. Years ago we attached some anchor bolts and a bracket to the wall that we hang some hooks off of. We are then able to hang our hammock between the wall and a chain I wrap around the tree. 

Spending a morning lounging in the hammock makes for quite a relaxing and enjoyable start to the weekend, that's for sure. (I even wrote this blog entry while laying there, so I was still being productive.)

It's a bit of a treat in an urban setting that everyone enjoys. This goes for people or pets. 

What sort of lazy activities do you enjoy to start a long weekend? Perhaps a little urban hammocking is in your cards?
