Free Saturday

Rarely do we have an "unscheduled" Saturday. For two people who only work part-time, we seem to be busy. Having a Saturday not filled with stuff does not happen that often.

But today was a "free" Saturday. We slept until 7 a.m., drank coffee and read the morning paper. We walked the dogs and poked fun at all our busy friends.

I put on my grass-cutting hat, fired up the John Deere, and leisurely cut grass. I know most people think cutting grass is a chore, but to me it's therapeutic. After I mowed a while, I pulled under a shade, sipped on a Gatorade. Off in the distance, I could hear crows fussing about something. 

Parking the mower in the barn, I walked back to the house. Inside the fence, I noticed the Honey Crisp Apple tree we planted a few years ago had its first bloom on it today. I didn't want that to go unacknowledged so I snapped a photo.

After a long nap, we went to the store an bought a bottle of wine and two ribeye steaks. 
You can probably guess what we had for supper tonight.

Right now, I'm blissing out and there's a very good chance I'll turn in early tonight.

  2. After my father retired he said 'I don't know how I ever found time to go to work'. I sneered but have often mentally apologised since I left paid employment. Life can get busy. Your day sounds lovely. Enjoy your early night.

  3. Sometimes we need a slower pace just to take time to smell the apple blossoms. This morning while coming home from the barn, I took a little walk in the back yard and I saw some crocus ready to open up. It made my day.

  5. I love those days where you can slow down, appreciate life, appreciate what you have - and even celebrate it - with wine, steaks or whatever. Sounds wonderful! Have a good week too!
