As we get ready for the official start of the summer season (at the pools and beaches at least), we're stuck by how different people view long weekends. Work colleagues seem faily evenly divided on this question- several have the weekend set aside for home projects (painting, restaining a deck, finding and installing a new bathroom vanity) while others are dedicated to catching some R&R at the beaches in Delaware and North Carolina...

I myself have a weekend of little projects planned- reorganizing shelves, culling books and clothes, even shooting a couple of house tours. Though I hope to spend at least one day just vegging, I look on this holiday as a chance to get my house in order for the summer, My sister falls into the other camp- though she is working this weekend, given the choice she'd be hanging out at the beach or by the pool.

What kind of holiday weekend do you have planned- R&R or DIY?
