Do you like Saturdays?

It's my favorite day of the week. I've equated Saturdays from the past with cartoons when I was a kid. Getting up to watch those AM cartoons and western movies. It used to be party night for me when I was in college and graduate school. It also used to be a date night when I was in high school. And sometimes it wasn't a good day when the alcoholic was drinking.

But now Saturdays are a day that I get to have some time off. I get to choose what I want to do. And for today I am choosing to do these things:
  • Give a good Homecoming to a great lady who died last week
  • Get out on the water of course
  • Start to replace wiring on the boat
  • Do a little guitar practice
  • Get to bed earlier than midnight
There are a lot of things that I used to try to cram into my Saturdays. I don't do that anymore if it can be helped. Saturday isn't supposed to be a day of catch up but a day to wind down.


  1. what's not to like about saturdays!!!

    i used to feel such pressure about weekends. after all, the question 'what you doing the weekend?' gets asked a lot. i've also reached the point where i can happily say, no plans, whatever comes up, and if nothing does, that's fine too!

    enjoy yours!!!!

  2. with you on winding down on today a Saturday...but I'm doing it on dry land of course. Enjoy your today/Saturday

  3. I used to get up on Saturday mornings and watch Tarzn-Black and White with Johnny Wisemiller (sp).
    Now, Saturday means laundry...damn.

  4. ... and I hope you had a good one.

  5. Bravo! I am extremely tired some Saturdays which frustrates me but the weather was absolutely beautiful today. I did nap alot but did get out and walk the mute (Alaskan Malamute) and ran some errands. You sound like my husband...guitar player who loves boating. Enjoy the day!

  6. I like most days now, I like weekends as a change to weekdays. I like weekdays as a change to weekends!

    Glad you enjoyd yours

  7. -Your are the Boat Whisperer-

    Thanks for sharing your Saturdays.


  8. I think everyone loves saturdays, I usually get up around 10am and Luke makes me a cup of tea, we then go round town to spend a bit of money, going round second hand market.
    Then we go for a walk in the afternoon before going to see my best mate sat night to catch up on the gossip.
    Your saturdays sounds good as well and yes when I was drinking Saturday was a all day event, I was usually passed out by 6-7 pm before coming round about 9pm to party till 12.
    Thank god those days are behing me

  9. Saturday cartoons....I did the Tarzan thing too as well as the Three Stooges... and I have no idea where my parents were. Probably sleeping it off.

    Saturday now is not quite as fun but a heck of alot pleasanter now that I am sober.

  10. I love early Saturday mornings - when the entire weekend is full of endless possibilities.


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
