Today is a lazy Saturday, just the kind I like. I get to stay home, which immediately makes this a good day. There are a few things I would like to accomplish by the end of the day. It would be great if I did but not catastrophic if I didn’t.
Getting to sleep in is always a good thing after getting up early for work all week. Cooking brunch for the family, especially with three of the four kids home, is a great way to start the day after finally getting out of bed. After brunch, I loaded the dishwasher so I’d be able to cook later today, and I did prep work for one of the two main dishes I’ll be cooking later. After that, I’ve been web browsing, checking Facebook, and contemplating what to write for today. I’ve done my daily Bible reading for the day and made a couple of plays in Words with Friends. I’ve technically started an ACT English Review PowerPoint for a workshop I’ll be doing next Saturday (no sleeping late next week which makes today’s opportunity even more precious), though with just two slides completed, there’s a lot left to do. We have the UK ball game on, though at the moment, we aren’t enjoying it very much.
I have one of my main dishes in the oven, and when Nic gets back from the store, I’ll put the other one together so we can have supper later. I decided to do all my major cooking today, leaving tomorrow to be finish-off-the-leftovers day. We’ll be going to my mom’s after church to celebrate the birthdays of one of my nieces and one of my nephews and one of my sisters-in-law, so when we get home having a fridge full of leftovers and not having to cook again will be nice.
Today, though, I’ve got to figure out what I want to get finished. I really should make a little more progress on that ACT Review PowerPoint, especially when I consider that I also need to do a Reading one before next Saturday. There’s a book I want to finish, and I need to read another 100 pages in The Hunger Games fairly soon so that I can stay a week ahead of the English 200 kids. At the time of this writing, there’s about seven hours before bedtime, assuming a bedtime of midnight, so there’s plenty of time to get some things accomplished. I’m not going to worry too much, though, about how much actually gets done. I’ll have things done by the time they need to be done, but for today, I’m going to enjoy my Saturday. There’s plenty of time for working; there needs to be plenty of time for relaxing as well.
