Weekend in focus
Hello. It’s Friday … a weekend’s possibilities at my doorstep but first, practicalities. Everyone gets clean bedding on Fridays … the friendly beasts and the little beasties who share my home.
Weekends mean new adventures … sights, sounds and perhaps, smells.
Even if flurries fly and it’s cold and gray and seemingly lifeless outside …
… it’s a warm and colorful world inside. And the indoor world is always brimming with life of some sort.
There’s something warm on the stove — no recipes, just things dumped in the pot. Ingredients added until it tastes good and pleasing and worthy of the weekend.
And there’s a spice cake with cream cheese frosting chilling in the fridge. Cold cake … nothing fancy … home-baked not homemade … but still tasty and treat-worthy.
And there are colors galore and soft, warm piles to keep me busy in a mindless but comforting task. Work that allows the brain to rest while the hands work for the good and love of others.
There are golden gifts packaged in natural browns that must be used in something … breakfast, lunch or dinner? It’s yet to be determined and completely dependent on a mood that strikes the head cook, the weekend cook or the sous chefs.
And there is this … my reading list. Lovely rooms in a favorite magazine … travel guides for a summer trip … a novel on loan from Mary Poppins the sitter who knows I will find it interesting. She’s right. And the subtitle seems a tribute to my life … A Memoir of Birth, Joy and Hard Times — perhaps a fitting title for all of us.
There you have it … my weekend’s
great humble expectations. And you? What do you plan to do in the next couple of days? Will you work? Will you rest? Will you read or watch or play or travel?
What’s doin’ at your place?
