Daily Prompt; Me Time’ The Daily Post


English: The Saturday morning launch, overlook...

What’s your ideal Saturday morning? Are you doing those things this morning? Why not?

 

I love Saturday mornings! I didn’t used to, but have learned to really appreciate this time of week. Whether it be raining, snowing, or burning hot outside, it is my “me time”. I have no doctor appointments. I do not have to call and make appointments, pay bills, go anywhere.

I may go somewhere but on my time. I get up and shower and start the coffee maker. I eat leisurely, when I feel like it. I hop on my computer and for this time of year, I turn on the Christmas Music station, and let it play gently into my ears.

I can smile as I read through my friends blogs. I can take my time responding by placing words that I want to say. I can go back and reread blogs that touched my heart. I try to clean my house through the week, so I don’t even make my bed on Saturdays.

Wow, this sounds like one selfish girl talking doesn’t it? Me, me, me, all about me. Why not? Why not give myself space just for me. One time per week, just a couple of hours, I won’t answer my phone, unless I see it is family or the nursing facility where my brother is. No getting up to see who is at the door. If it is my family, the grandson will just beat on the door. This is my cue it is family.

I am still in my nightgown. For this morning, after my shower, I have chosen a lovely pink frock of double-knit, knee-length, with Christmas packages adorned on the front. Don’t you wish you were sitting here with me in your frock of comfort with fuzzy  warm slippers just like me? I am eating now. Two eggs and one hash brown, and slowly savoring my cup of Folgers coffee with cream.

Oh my gosh, no wonder I take this time for me! It is most likely as close to heaven as I will get here on earth!!!

Thanks Daily Post for giving me a great prompt!

  1. I’d say that after all the time you have devoted to everyone else, that you deserve a lot of undisturbed “me” time. Enjoy it, Terry! ~Lynda
    PS: Your pink frock sounds festive, and comfortable too!

    • I have wondered how much different my Saturday mornings would be if I had a mate in my life. Would I be anxious to get up and get dressed? Would I still want these lazy mornings? Who knows, still hoping for a partner

    • it is the one time of the week that is all mine. I hope nothing changes it. I could have it for Sunday’s too, but the guilt I carry for not visiting Al on one of the two day weekends eats at me. I hate to say it but I often wish I could have the whole weekend off from visiting him, because I often walk into sadness and despair. It hurts my heart so bad, the coward in me wants to stay a way for a couple of days. I try to go every other day to visit him usually, taking Saturdays completely off
