Weekend happenings in Dayton, Ohio

Friday & Me

Happy Friday Y’all — wake up and smell the coffee!

I know the week is a struggle — sometimes you feel it too sluggish — and then comes the weekend and your entire being is energized! The lovely weekend filled with all sorts of things to do that don’t seem like work at all. Lawn care, bush trimming, chimney sweeping, trench digging — all fun to do, right? Wrong! The weekend is not for these things. The weekend is for outings and relaxation. 

I had a friend that would work 24/7 from Monday –to– Friday doing all things required to put her house and yard in order. Then from clock-out-time on Friday until Midnight Sunday she played hostess and enjoyed her life with family and friends. There were outings to parks and backyard barbecues — movie nights — visits to live music and plays that filled the weekend. There was laughter and happiness all around and she was pure joy to go see. (hint: dishwasher was involved but only for storage, run on Sunday night and put away Monday morning before leaving to our office) I mean she had it down to a science. I admired her very much. I wanted to be equal but I love to trim a rose bush on Saturday mornings, or yes-yes-yes dig that trench! In the end I think it is what is pleasing to each individual as to how one wishes to handle the weekend.
