Day 13. Happy Saturday

Oh, the bliss of a lazy Saturday morning... especially when it's the Saturday of a long weekend! 

The air hints at autumn (it can come early in northerly Alberta) -- there's a crispness in the air that makes you want to wrap your fingers around a warm coffee cup, and nibble away at something tasty like a flaky chocolate drizzled croissant.

Even after nearly five years of not working full-time and being at home full-time, I still get that little thrill of knowing the weekend has arrived.

It's the time that, for many of us, tends to be more flexible and there's room for more spontaneity and leisure. For us, Saturday seems to promise more of that than any other day of the week. And, even if it's busy, there's a feeling that you can indulge yourself a bit. With chocolate croissants, for instance.

Now, in case you have chores on your weekend list, here's a bit of advice that's worth taking:
Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Lower the bar. Actually spending ten minutes clearing off one shelf is better than fantasizing about spending a weekend cleaning out the basement. ~ Gretchen Rubin, source
Now, go and enjoy your weekend,
