How's Your Tuesday?
My Tuesday is great, how's yours?
Tuesday is bit of a nothing day isn't it? The week has already begun so there's no point whinging about that, because that happened yesterday. And the end of the week seems mountains away, so it's a kind of depressing nothing to look forward to kind of day.
I once read that someone, somewhere, was thinking of scrapping Tuesdays, just taking it off the calendar. What was it good for anyway? There's usually nothing good on tv and the kids still had tonnes of homework to get through. We would then go from Monday, right into mid week, and then it's only a quick run and jump into the weekend!
But we still have it and I'm glad because Tuesdays are my day off, and there's nothing better than that! Well maybe cheap Tuesdays for Pizza, half price movie tickets, Tuesday supermarket specials and somewhere there's Taco Tuesday that I'm very interested in.
I usually start my Tuesdays by jumping out of bed with a fist pump exclaiming child free day, and whip the kids out the door very fast so I can get to my guitar lesson.
One hour later of not thinking about the mundane, and I'm back home, and most probably back in my pyjamas, only because they are comfortable, and while I promise I don't go back to bed, I'll proceed to get some housework done, enough to pass if I get a visitor.
Here's todays photos, proving that I did not go back to bed.
The thing is, everyone needs some time alone. Time to reflect, to do their thing, without restraint or the feeling of having to be anywhere. I love my Tuesdays at home, spending time in my house, drinking tea on the deck and watching the guinea fowl play.
Sometimes I'll flick through a country magazine, or read, or sort a cupboard, feeling inspired by just having time for me. I always feel better for it. We all need it.
What about you? How's your Tuesday?
