I Love Saturdays

I love Saturdays - a whole day stretching out in front of you when you don't have to answer to someone else's schedule.

Even though I have a lot on my plate to accomplish, it's just nice to do it on a Saturday when there's no other schedule.

I got up this morning and worked around the house some until hunger brought me downstairs, looking for food. It was around noon and I decided I'd take a chance Jocelyn wanted to go get some Roy's. So, I called and she was up for it. As a matter of fact, she had just told a friend a little earlier that she was thinking about getting some Roys.

I then went out and about running errands for various things. I had a list of things I needed to accomplish this weekend and some shopping was on the list. I ended up going to a half dozen places and still have two more to hit, but I did get a lot done.

I popped down to Diana's for a few minutes on my way to my office and while I was there Teresa called and asked if I wanted to have dinner. She had been to the Kansas Explorer's Event today. I just didn't think I could afford the time to go and I was right - I did make good use of the day.

But, I went to dinner with Teresa, then did another shopping trip to pick up a couple of little things.

I'm headed upstairs shortly to work on some things up there. It seems there's always more to do in this house than I can get done in a timely manner.

I also have to finish up my beader prayer pouches for an exchange. I rarely participate in exchanges unless they just really appeal to me and this one did. But it's due next week so I want to wrap it up this weekend.
