There comes a time during every year when the weather gets hot, humid and the sun’s shining and there’s nothing better than after spending a bunch of time cutting grass in the hot summer’s sun than enjoying some ice cold whiskey and beer. I’ve spent my fair share of days having to work outside in the sun over the years. Some days were good, other days, well not so much.
How To Enjoy Summer Weekends With Drinks and Friends
But, the caveat to all that is the concerts that come around, especially country. Nobody enjoys an ice cold whiskey and coke alongside a beer than a bunch of screaming country music fans. A great example would be to look at a concert we attended a few years back by Luke Bryan and a few other big name artists in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
People were dancing, singing and overall just getting drunk and going crazy for the music. Talk about a grand ol’ time. The video I shared unfortunately wasn’t one of mine, I only wish I could’ve been that close and on stage to enjoy those sweet melodies.
However, I reach an epiphany at that stage, I realized how I needed to enjoy my time more every day. And this meant cutting out anything that caused me to not enjoy every single second of freedom and free time I had outside of my 8am to 5pm job Monday through Friday. So in turn, I had to find a house cleaner (Beauticians Inc.), because that takes hours to do each week. Next was a home chef (Your Kitchen Automated, LLC).
Getting Down To It For Getting My Weekend Drinking Time Back
I saved over a dozen hours per week by doing that. And then I had to find a snow plowing service for the winter time (who knows how many back breaking hours that endures), and eventually when the following spring came around, I found the lawn care service. And I was wowed by the work those guys (Always Greener Landscaping) did each week, because best of all I never had to get dirty again with the mowing, grass blowing all over, weed trimming, and laying the mulch wood chips. What a mood improvement to not have to come home to doing that stuff on weeknights and big projects on the weekend because I had hired it out. If you own property in the Lehigh Valley, I can’t recommend them enough, check their website for information about Always Greener’s lawn care and landscaping services. I cant describe the feeling any more than “sigh of relief!” once the burden of having to work on my house on the weekends is now lifted off me!
My time is so much more valuable, even compared to the $50-$75+
per hour that the lawn care company ends up charging for their lawn mowing, rock bed, and leaf removal work. And my chef is about $100 per hour, but it’s an investment rather than a cost because that’s more time spent with friends, good music, cold alcoholic drinks (unless it’s winter time and we’re talking about some alcohol infused eggnog), and good times. It just simply can’t be beat.
