What is your favorite day of the week? And why? Post # 256

What is your favorite day of the week? And why?. If I have to pick only one, maybe I would pick Thursday. It has so many possibilities! That is the day when I can hit the ground running, work hard at my ob and finish the chores and errands that I might have to do over the weekend. The reason? If I finish it on Thursday, then I don’t have to do it over the weekend. It increases my relaxation time over the weekend–or may even open up the possibilities for clearing some long-standing things to do from my lengthy postponed list.

It is the same theory I have if I am getting ready for the arrival for company. For example, I might set the table a day ahead of time, lay out the linens, do a lot of the other things a bit ahead. I do not like to be rushing around right up to their arrival. I would rather rush around earlier. That way I have time to put my feet up and relax before the arrival. I can clear my head and be ready to be gracious and charming when they arrive! No one likes a stressed out hostess!

Now my other favorite day, as I have said a few other times, is Sunday. We head to church on Saturday evening. Sunday is family day–and oh boy do we need it every week. It provides the strength and glue to head into each week. By framing Sunday with Mass on Saturday evening it makes God’s day more than 24 hours long. I LOVE that :-)!

  1. I do love this photo! How long does it take to drive from AR to AZ?

    I, also, love being ready ahead of time. For Thanksgiving, one year, I set the table with all the finest linens, dishes, etc., calling myself ready WAY ahead of time, the weekend before. However . . .
    On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, we awoke to the smoke alarm. Our furnace had a switch that was burning out and had caught the attic ablaze. No major damage, but because the furnace blower was engaged at the time, it had blown ash directly over that table. 🙂 Did I ever have to work double-time after that!

    At least we were alive to tell about it! And what a major Thanksgiving it was, that year! 🙂

      Oh no!!! I bet that was a mess—and a bit stressful getting ready on time. But it is always so lovely to have everyone together. Distance AR to AZ—I think I had better check!! Your Thanksgiving story reminds me of a time when I was in junior high. We were all making Christmas cookies. In the midst of it (when we had dough made up for about oh maybe 20 dozen cookies—those were our families gifts to everyone that year)—my mom opened the oven door to take a batch out and put a batch in….The oven door fell completely off!! For the rest of the baking that day my dad and my little brothers held the door on. Then when it was time to swap batches, they would lift the door off while we swapped the pans and then they would hold it closed again. Each time they’d say “time for another batch, girls!”…it to this day is one of my funniest and favorite memories of the holidays. After we finished and the oven cooled off, my dad was able to rig some hinge-substitutes using unbent hangars ❤

  2. Now THAT made me laugh! I can just see the dedication in those men! Ha! I am thinking “time for another batch, girls” became a family saying to apply when appropriate? Ha!

      It did—and it was so hilarious watching them stagger backwards with the big Tappan oven door and then stagger forward to plunk it back on. very weird putting cookie sheets in and out of the oven with no open oven door in the way 🙂
