My favourite days are those that unfold with no set plans. Nowhere we have to be. Nothing we have to do. Just a whole precious day where its hours are all our own. Weekend days can be like this and so can school holiday days. We are now on school holidays. That means strings of days to do with as we please. What a wonderful, happy luxury to have two whole weeks where there is no need to rouse a school child from his slumber, no long school drive, no lunchboxes to pack up at the kitchen bench, no homework to do, no long drive home again. With all this freedom from our school routines, I know I will weave some of the things I love into these days that I love:
Reading ... for I borrowed many library books.
Sewing ... for there is a skirt to finish.
Knitting ... for there are gifts to make in time for Xmas.
Baking ... for we all like to lick the bowl!
Planting ... for it is Spring and the soil is warm.
Stitching ... for I want to make things with the old linens I've found.
Walking ... for there is always something of interest along a path.
I'm sure as the days pass that we will do more some days and less on others. There will be other favourite things among these favourite things. But what I like the most is the freedom of waking up and seeing where a day takes me. Don't you?
