Holy moly – where did the week go?
Funny thing – I totally meant to post something earlier this week. Everyday I thought I had an extra day. But no – I guess I did not….
But today is FRIDAY – the happiest day of the week! Friday, for most people, brings the promise of two days where we are FREE to do what we want/please/desire. The shackles of the “work-week” are cast aside. Want to sleep in? Go ahead! Want to go for a hike in the middle of the day? Have at ‘er! Want to stay on your couch and binge-watch The Walking Dead? Right on! It’s the weekend and you can!
The past few months have been a bit of an adjustment period for me. I am transitioning from working in an office 5 days a week to working from home and setting my own schedule. Sometimes the days just melt into one another. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday lose their meaning when you’re not counting down to having two days in a row where you don’t have to commute almost for almost 2 hours.
But alas – Friday is always awesome, commuting or not. It just has that added bit of flair. Fridays seem shinier than the fours days that precede it. Yes siree, Friday is my favourite day of the week, hands-down. 🙂
Here are my Five Favourite Things About Friday:
When the sun shines for the first time all week (it’s been really cold and wet since Monday). You feel like singing and dancing and all your flowers are happily soaking up the rays. The forecast for the weekend is warm and clear. Friday sunshine is just the start of good things to come:
Work meetings always seem to happen on Friday mornings. So in the AM, I get to dress up and leave the house for work-related activity. But in the PM, especially when it’s hot and sunny, I get to come home and work from the back deck for the rest of the day:
Homemade pizza will be served up for dinner tonight:
Countdown is on to 5 pm and the end of the work-week. Whether we have tons of plans or no plans at all, Friday afternoon creeps along. The anticipation is lovely:
And finally – when all my emails for the week have been sent and my laptop is turned off – a glass of wine on the patio:
And that is what I love most about Friday!
Have a great weekend…..
