SOL March Challenge #2
I love you both. You each bring your own unique traits that make you special in my eyes.
Saturday. With your arms open wide. It’s as if I hear you saying……
“Come. We have all day. Run your errands. Even with the few obligations you have, we are still flexible today!”
Saturday, you provide me with time to:
Wear comfy clothes,
Wake up just a bit later,
Use the leave-in moisturizer in my hair to make up for the products all week,
Tend to the loads and loads of clothes awaiting laundry (You know I love that!),
Get my mom out of her condo so she doesn’t forget what the world looks like, smells like, feels like,
Stay up a bit later at night…watching movies, going out to a concert., sitting on the balcony reading and watching the city lights…..
Sunday. With your arms open wide. It’s as if I hear you saying…..
“Come. We have all day. Albeit the last day before the work week begins, we still have time to get things done today!”
Sunday, you provide me with:
A continuation of comfy clothes, no makeup, and loads of laundry patiently awaiting their turn,
A quiet morning to rise a little earlier than yesterday with time all to myself (case in point – right NOW!),
Time for walking on the treadmill, because I’ve learned one day a week is better than no days a week,
A slow and easy time to make breakfast that usually turns into brunch while sipping coffee and listening to the Coffee House on the radio (which stays on all day),
Time to bring the coffee frother out. I know that’s not a word, but we’ve named it for what it does. It froths milk in your coffee and it’s heaven right here at home.
Time to reflect and plan for the coming week,
Time for grocery shopping for two households with time to think, rather than running through the store grabbing stuff off the shelves in a hurried frenzy,
Time for the unexpected to happen….a friend to drop by or a walk through the city – which is never OK during those other days of the week,
A day to light the candles in the house early because they have all day to flicker and burn and send lovely smells throughout because we may not be going anywhere,
A night where I don’t fall into bed completely exhausted.
I probably should have left the “vs” out of my title. It’s not an “either, or” situation. I started writing this thinking that I would love one weekend day over the other. I ended realizing just how great each of the days are and how lucky we are to have the time at the end of the week to regroup, reorganize and reenergize!
Happy Sunday everyone!
