I’m doing well with my a.m. and p.m. routines. I’ve tweaked them and rehearsed them and they’ve made a positive difference.

Weekends are a different story; my weekend routines are different.

First, Saturday and Sunday both begin with a lie in, a cup of hot tea, reading. I don’t generally sleep later, but I don’t get up till I feel like it.

I skip exercise and maybe I shouldn’t do that. But I eat my healthy breakfast and get ready as usual.

Sunday I have Sunday school, livestream church, and often one or more meetings. So Saturday is my free day, a day for knitting, reading, sewing, baking, watching mystery programs on TV, hanging out with my kids and grandkids.

I’d like to include more outdoor time. More household organization, more gardening. More other kinds of projects. Once the pandemic ends, there should be more adventures.

But the important thing is the freedom. It’s important for me to have a day that feels as though I can do anything I want.

There Littles came over for a sleepover last night. We had a lot of fun, though not a lot of sleep. #1 daughter came over this morning with doughnuts. After  that, I read. Did a little knitting, chatted with my daughters via text.

I did the dishes, cleaned up a bit. I focused on relaxation and recharging. That’s a good weekend routine for me.
