It was a leisure Saturday for me, I usually scurry around starting all kinds of house cleaning jobs at the same time when I have a week-end off but today I had this laid back attitude & enjoyed my coffee, made french toast for breakfast, & then started the cleaning. But I had only one agenda in mind, get all the bedding, including the mattress pad off the bed & wash every last piece. The pillow shams, the comforter you know the whole sch-bang.
I can't believe that it actually took me the entire day to get this one job accomplished but it did.. of course we had to make a run into town to the store, get our tax papers together & ready to go, get gas & the oil changed in the jeep, it has this little beep beep noise to alert you when the next servicing is needed & won't stop till you have it done, which will drive you nuts every time you turn on the ignition so that was definitely on the list to do today before I lost my mind listening to the beep beep. Back to the subject, where was I? oh yeah, I just got the bed put together in time to climb into it for the night, but everything smells so clean & sweet, & the comforter is all fluffed & puffy, Ahhhh
Anyway it was a good day & being home puttering around running errands, having no real direction or structure. Such a welcome difference than jumping out of bed, into the shower, dress, do hair, makeup, grab a cup of coffee & run out the door, drive half asleep on roads that don't get plowed until after you get to work, & appear fresh & cheery when you walk in the door at work. Leisure Saturdays are great... Sundays off are pretty good to, I get to go to church which happens every other week for me, & there is nothing like walking into my church & hearing the Word, fellow shipping with other believers & listening to what the Lord has to say to me, that is breath of fresh air to my spirit & gets me prepared to face the work week.
Don't get me wrong I love my job & the people I work with & care for but week-ends off are pretty special.. worth writing a post about, for sure!!! What is your favorite way to spend a day off?? Cooking? baking? shopping?? I like to get ideas in case I need to try something different. Have a blessed week-end y'all.
