Ahhhhh!! Saturday!!!

Hardly anything thrills me more than waking up on a Saturday morning, knowing the day is a blank slate - ready to be written all over with the colored chalk of my choice. Examining my choices, I choose something - no, that's not good enough, yes! -that is something I have been longing to do - I mentally make my list of choices and plan out the day.

I suppose if I were a stay-at-home wife/mom/grandmother, I wouldn't appreciate Saturdays so much.

Here is my list for today:

Reading my Bible in a year portion.

Sewing some soft flannel into little blankets for our much anticipated grandson - Ryan Craig.

Finishing the knitting of my Happily Every After Fingerless Mitts.

Taking Jess, my knitting buddy, to the fabric store to choose some buttons to finish her knitting projects.

Watching On Moonlight Bay - a netflix dvd that has been sitting on the coffee table for 6 weeks. So glad there is no late fees with Netflix!

And I think that list will carry me through this day and bring me a measure of peace and fulfillment. These kind of days always rejuvenate me and make me, well, just happy. I guess the best word to use is - RENEWED.

Happy Saturday to you!

The Butler asked me just this week which night was my favorite night of the week. "FRIDAY!" I told him ... because the next day was Saturday with all of its potential just waiting for me. And a late wake up call (I answer a 5:00 a.m. alarm during the week).

Happy Saturday back to you too. Today I had a breakfast date with the Butler and I am catching up on my Better Homes and Gardens magazines. Happy times!

I love Saturdays too, even though I'm "retired!" But even more so in the past. Although right now Saturday is good because I don't have to get anyone ready for school! But yesterday it was getting ready for a quiz meet, Girl Scout cookie selling, and on and on. Crazy.

Have a great week! Soon you can retire!
