I just LOVE my week-ends!


I LOVE my week-ends.

I've 'claimed' Saturdays as 'ME' days...
it's the one day of the week I devote to myself.

No work...unless that's what I 'feel' like doing...
I catch up on emails...
read and comment on my fave blogs...
putter around the house...
(this past Saturday I made homemade chicken noodle soup..
fresh dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls)

I write a few blog posts and schedule them...
I can always 're-schedule' if something more 'pressing' comes up...
(with my schedule being what it is...I can't always find the
time to post something new each and every day)
but I try not to schedule more than a couple a week.

I take a nice long relaxing bath....
do my laundry
(since I only have myself to do laundry for...once a week is plenty)

anyway...you get the picture...Saturdays I mostly
spend time with myself.

Then...every other Sunday
(unless a holiday sneaks it's way in there)
we have 'family' day.

The kids and grandkids come over..
we have some kind of dinner
and just 'hang out'.
(Jaime has to come over every Sunday...
we do have to 'meet' once a week..
since our businesses are somewhat intertwined...
and besides..
she has to bring over whatever she's printed for me..
any supplies she's included with her own orders..
that sort of thing.)

I wished my week-days were as relaxed and laid back!
Ah well...it is what it is.

I love days like that where I can focus on the things that are important to me and catch up. Beautiful picture, once again!

Since I got back from my 3 week trip to the UK I realized that the world isn't going to stop if I take some time out and I'm hoping to take a more chilled out approach to running my shop. It's definitely hard striking the right balance, but we all need a day to do what we want to do.
