Ahhhh...Saturday Morning....

I love a truly leisurely Saturday morning.

Staying in bed those extra couple of minutes, drinking an extra cup of coffee (with extra creamer, of course),
Substituting a bowl of cereal for several (dozen) pieces of dark chocolate,

spending precious morning time that is usually spent running around and frantically getting ready for the day just playing and talking with my baby, refusing to replace pajamas with clothes until I have been up at least an hour,

listening to fun music just because,

enjoying a long soothing shower in which I continue to drink coffee (this is why a seat in the shower is essential for living),

sitting on the couch and staring out the front window simply to enjoy the view:What is the essence of a leisurely Saturday morning?

Stopping and just enjoying the moment.

I tend to get caught up in the "hustle and bustle" of life- running from appointment to appointment, fixing the next meal, ignoring that next load of laundry, making that next lesson plan- I love when I can set all of that aside for a morning and just enjoy my family, my coffee, and just life.

It's amazing that because of where Saturday falls in the week, I can ignore and forget the events of the past week, and I can convince myself not to worry about the coming week yet because there is a day cushioning the present from all of the stress that is still to come. I think of all I need to get done and make a list (after the leisurely morning is completely over), conveniently forgetting that even this magical day includes only 24 hours and so overwhelm the list that I decide to ditch it completely and do such things as take a long bubble bath and then go hang out with family.

Now that is a profitable Saturday.
