Me on the Weekends
I love my Sundays. I love the fact that I get up at roughly the same time I do on a weekday -- seven, this morning -- and then have hours of quiet and stillness and peace, while my neighbors sleep. I love that I have already taken down a load of garbage and dusted everything and redone the couch cover before I hear the floor creak upstairs. I love that the weather continues being the weather even though I am the only one up to witness it -- the rain keeps trickling down the window, the wind blows in raggedy bursts. I love that I can watch Perry Mason in between each job, and not feel like I am wasting my time. I love my hot coffee, and my thin, crunchy toast, my hummus and my special, home made raspberry jam. I love being me on the weekends.
