5 Reasons This Is A Great Weekend

It is only Saturday morning, oh… wait… wow, it’s noon?!  How long have I been on this computer?!

Anyways, it is only Saturday at noon and I have already proclaimed this a great weekend.  Despite the rain (I am a sun girl) and the fact that I was awake from 4:00 am to 7:00 am, it is still a great weekend! 

  1. Wine and cookies!: Yesterday was the Feast of the Annunciation which means a church sanctioned break from Lent!  I didn’t know about this ahead of time, but at 6:00 last night I got a text from a Lenten authority who told me I could drink wine.  Within a minute (no joke) I was sipping a glass of wine.  I followed that up with cookies – both freshly baked and the Girl Scout variety! Bliss!
  2. A schedule free day!: The only reason I could lose track of time today is that today is a rare Saturday where we don’t have kids sports (thanks to the rain), birthday parties or pressing errands.  I am in my jammies, reading, writing and enjoying some leisure time.
  3. My kids: With less rushing around, I have gotten extra hugs, and a very special, “I love you mommy soo much with my whole heart”.  That is my daughter’s interpretation of I love you with all my heart.
  4. Creative Ideas A-Flowin’:  I have been working on a pet project and I could not sleep in the wee hours of the morning because ideas were popping into my head.  I got up and mapped everything out on paper.  I feel  much further along and ready to start making it a reality.
  5. Dinner with friends: I am going to sushi tonight with friends to celebrate my upcoming birthday.  My husband and I have both been traveling a lot too much for work and are looking forward to an evening with friends.  When I started Lent, I gave myself one free pass for my birthday so I will be enjoying beers with my sushi tonight. (Like all things in my life, Lent is a guideline and last night was simply an offical bonus!)

I guess it’s my chosen positive perspective today – happiness and positivity.  I could dwell on the rain and the lack of sleep, but they are both opportunities to find other sources of happiness!

I am heading back to my fabulous weekend – go make yours great too!

    Sounds like a truly great weekend. I really think a study should be done comparing creative output to “treat wine.” I swear that I right my best stuff when I find that I have a night of drinking when I thought I’d be fully booked.

    Awesomely awesome. I COULD be experiencing the Sunday night blues right now, but I just read this.

    Smiles all around.

    Hope the wine and cookies were delicious. Duh.
