Hey Hey Hey - It's Saturday

United States
August 27, 2016 8:34am CST
I know, big deal to some of us. Retired people enjoy Saturday every day. But back in the good ol'days of working, Saturday was a big deal then. Weekdays dragged on and on but Saturday and Sunday flew by. I'll take retirement any day, as a matter of fact I took it sixteen years ago and while not anywhere near retirement age, it was the best move ever. I didn't want to be 'old and retired' I wanted to be young enough to enjoy it....and I do. Today no running around, no food shopping, or pool store or banking, just a good day to do nothing...sure we'll cook, but that's a necessity. Robo vac is cleaning the pool so even that chore is a breeze for my husband. What's on your agenda for today? Do you plan on enjoying yourself?

I like your quote... "this weekend I'll forget about troubles." I think that I will put that up over my desk. ;)

I used to be like that also...especially if the boss was going to be in the office on Mondays - which wasn't always the case thank goodness.

I had nothing planned today, only enjoy a lazy Saturday. The day is hot and sticky I have spent some time inside the hot tub and then I have read some pages of my book relaxing under the porch. This is the last Saturday of August. I can say that here summer is over.

It's not over here yet, the heat I don't mind, but the humidity today is a killer. I have never once sat in a hot tub, that's too hot for me. I don't like to take a bath either.

@AbbyGreenhill I do not heat the water in summer, I like the massage of the hot tub, but I prefer cold water.

@AbbyGreenhill That's ok - I just laughed when I read it in the small view in my screenshot - I wonder if the bad word checker allows "turd"...?

I remember the longing for Saturdays when I was in school. The school week seemed so long to get through. Today, I am just staying home and relaxing.

I try not to think back to school days - how I hated school. Went in the pool about an hour but now it's just too humid so I'm chilling out in the a/c.

My daughter is on her way down from Portland with her Chihuahua puppy we have not met. It will be great to see her, since it has been several weeks since I was up there.

I agree with your thinking on retiring early. I saw lots of people work till they were too old to enjoy the time off, and I didn't want to be one of them. As for Saturday, even now, it is still my favorite day of the week. Just something serendipitous about it. It is just a fun day. Enjoy yours!

Thanks...I often forget what day it is unless we have an appointment. Its very slow around here on Saturdays with little traffic and that I like - they tend to go 80 in a 40 zone on this country road.

A day of doing nothing is always a good way to rest! I hope you've been enjoying it. :) To answer your question, I went to the flea market, Toys 'R' Us and Rite-Aid with some of the family, and I haven't done much outside of that, but that's okay lol.

I wish we had a good flea market...there is only fifteen mins. away but it's stuff that I have no interest in. and the building is huge - outside they might have veggies but most often we don't need more than what we have from our garden.

@AbbyGreenhill Ack, I'm sorry. :-/ We have two around here that I like, and then there was a third we tried, you pay a quarter to get in, and it's not worth a second trip to me. What about thrift stores? Those are just as good as flea markets; I love thrift stores.
