This year I am loving Saturdays. Especially mornings. Yep. Saturday morning is the jam. Other years it was a Tuesday or a Thursday or Mondays... Mondays were good days when I was on a Tuesday to Saturday rotation. I would send all the people off on their day and the house would be quiet and calm and it was wonderful. Saturday mornings are kind of like that now. I get up before everyone else and it is quiet.
The big challenge is how early do I get up? I do like to catch up on sleep - but I definitely don't sleep in late as I cherish the solo time in the morning. We now have a few more bodies in the house and so it is essential that I get up before they do. I need the quiet, still mornings. There is not much worse than a day that starts off with chaos. I know this about myself.
The sun appears to be pushing through which is an added bonus. My list of things to do is long. I need to cross some chores off today. There is gardening to be done. I am motivated to get my garden looking tidy so I can appreciate its beauty as we don't know if it our last summer here or not. I am also motivated to get my lettuce planted. I have some business follow up to do as we are heading into the final week of the month. I am not especially worried about the inside chores. Taxes will be finished tomorrow. And we have a birthday celebration tonight and our bestest friends are coming home for HOLY WEEK and PASCHA.
