Almost everybody had a favorite day of the week. My favorite day of the week is each Thursday. There is a reason for that. I go every Thursday to volunteer for about 2 hours each week at the library. Last week the librarians told me I am their best volunteer and help them so much. They are always thanking me for the help I give them. This volunteering is the best thing to ever happen to me I love all the workers who are all so sweet and kind! Do you have a favorite day of the week?? Do you have a reason for that day being a favorite?

I'm sure you are a great deal of help at the library. Many of these places would be battling to cope if it weren't for volunteers like yourself. I don't really have a favourite day of the week. Most days are good ones.

Yesterday I had to put away a whole cart of books! I love to do that as I find so many new authors that way! I think I am helping as they thanked me again yesterday!

@Marty1 If I had a cartload of books to put away, I might be tempted to start reading one then the books would never get returned to the shelves!

@JudyEv I asked, and i get to put books aside that I want to check out! I have to watch myself, or i would have to hire a moving truck to carry the books home!

Not really. I mean im pretty fond of every other Wednesday but that's because it's pay day.

It is always a good day any day of the week to be with family. I see my family if I see them the week on a Saturday usually unless it is a holiday like Easter that falls on a Sunday

@mlgen1037 I only see my one sibling on Saturdays, but not every week. I will be going on my second weekend without seeing her this weekend. I will see my uncle this Saturday as he is driving me to my book club.

Oh that's cool! What kinds of things do you do at the library? They sound like great people there. I don't have a favorite - I try to make each day something to look forward to. Monday is dance, Tuesday is my at home day, Wednesday is either bar bingo or outdoor concert, Thursday is sometimes another dance class, Friday is the weekend - usually something fun going on Fri, Sat, and Sun. sometimes I go out with a friend :-)

It sounds like you have a productive week! I usually put books back on the shelves and something called "reading the shelves" which means I have to make sure all the books are in the spot they should be. i also helped get envelopes ready for a huge fundraiser a few months ago. I love being there and helping out!

@FayeHazel Reading the shelves is only a little tricky on the nonfiction shelves which goes by numbers but still fun! The fiction is easier as it goes by the author's name. But with these books when the author wrote more than one book, the books have to be put on the alphabetically by the titles. That gets a bit tricky with authors like Stephen King who have written so many books

I like Friday's too! I would love the weekend, but the problem is that all my weekday TV shows aren't on during the weekend. So I do like Friday, and I get t see them but dread I know the will not be on for two days after that.

I am so glad you are still doing this and enjoying it so much. It is obvious they enjoy having you there as well! I don't really have a favorite day of the week. I like the weekends because then I don't have to do any cyber school with me son and can usually relax more.

@shaggin Will you have another opportunity to participate in a garbage clean up? Did you stay home and rest or go to the cleanup? My sister and her husband go to do that frequently at a park near their home for the Boy Scouts as my nephew is one!

@Marty1 It goes way back to when I was in third grade. On Fridays I went downtown by myself on a bus for piano lessons and a soda, took the bus home to Sabbath dinner with my family, and watched TV with them. The house smelled delicious from the lemon oil and Jubilee the cleaning lady used and the chicken soup, roast chicken and roasted potatoes my mother cooked. It was a warm and loving feeling that is ingrained in me to this day.

Every Thursday? I think that sounds divine! I see my sister only on weekends, so i like that day, too. I like tomorrow's Saturday as it is April 28, and it is my cat's first birthday! But he does get a toy each 28th of every month for his monthly birthday! For his first birthday, he gets helium balloon with a string as my aunt bought me one on my birthday/ dinner party for family and my cat was after that balloon for over a month
