Friday … it’s my favorite night of the week. The weekend stretches out before me like a pristine beach without any footprints. It’s just waiting for me to make my mark and create whatever I want from the next two days. And, to boot, it’s my favorite kind of weekend – filled with gaping holes of time with nothing to do . It will evolve as it rolls along.
I plan to laze around in the morning with a good cup of coffee and then head over to the Farmer’s Market to stock up on fresh local vegetables and be super grateful that I live in Louisiana and local vegetables are plentiful in January. My friend Alisa and I have loose plans to meet for coffee at some point, so I hope to make that happen. Maybe we’ll meet at Magpie for some of their delicious dancing goat coffee blend. Other than that, I’ll try to do yoga and/or a strength-training workout and take the doggie out for a walk. And I’m sure my house will get a spot cleaning at some point tomorrow.
If it’s really nice Sunday, I may head out to Tickfaw State Park for a hike with Ashok. She’s gotten really sassy since she became a Badass Backpacker. Tonight I tried to give her some water, and she looked at me like I was a fool trying to give her that citified tap water. We went out for a walk and she lapped up the water in the puddles like she was dry as a bone. I guess trail water is the only that will do for her now.
I have tickets Sunday to attend a group reading at Indigo Spiritual Center with Stacy Hilton. She’s amazing, and I always leave there feeling refreshed and enlightened. There’s something really comforting about knowing that there is life on the other side of this one, and our loved ones are just not that far away.
I Don’t Have to Be Me (‘Til Monday)
But I still say the best part of the weekend is right now. Sunday night will be here in about 10 minutes, but right now, the weekend is a blank slate. I think I’ll take a hot bath, noodle the next 48 hours and let my mind wander wherever it wants to go. Two more sleeps before I have to go back to work. I plan to make the best of them.
Have a good weekend, y’all.
