>Simple Pleasures: Thursdays

September 16, 2010

>I’ve been dying for WEEKS now to link up with Dayle, but every Thursday that rolls around I’m tapped out.

You see, Thursday is my down day. Over the hump, the eve of the weekend, it’s always been my day to rest and recover.

On Thursdays, I often meet friends in the evening for coffee or dinner. Rarely do we have something scheduled for a Thursday night.

We have a home group that meets at our house on Wednesday nights. My week begins with a full-scale effort to purge boy-messes from the house, for the sake of our guests.

But Thursdays – on Thursday my house is still clean and I actually get to sit back and enjoy it.

Sometimes we even eat dinner, as a family, in front of the TV with Alton Brown, or NOVA.

Thursdays the homework just seems easier, the laundry less, and the sun, I think, even stays up a little later. On Thursdays I’m back out in the yard, pulling off a spent bloom or two, watering my dahlias and snipping a few fall roses for my kitchen window.

Thursdays are my day to breathe.

    >Adelle, what better simple pleasure than just a day to "breathe," as you put it. But you're always welcome here whenever you feel up to it. So good to see you today!

    >Adelle, we all need days like that. I know I do, Not only is a time to breath a simple pleasure, it's a necessity. (couldn't help myself) 🙂 Great post!
