Stress free Saturday
    They can happen sometimes, and today was one of those days.
    I awakened later than planned, but somehow neither a bad mood nor a "too-long-in-bed" headache proceeded therefrom. My brother called, and his voice and conversation made me feel a great deal better about him than they did the last time he called. The man deserves some up days.
    Later, I called my dad, and learned to my delight that his room now has a phone. I talked to him briefly, told him I loved him, and promised him more letters. Not a great deal, but I think he was glad to hear from me, and I was glad to have made the call.
    The afternoon saw a fine batch of bread, the evening saw Andy playing three separate parts in his community theater's production of Stage Door. Of course, he was masterful, goes without saying, but there were also at least two others in the ensemble group who were good, and another three or so who were really not sucky. The others were undoubtedly fine people.
    And now I'm home,and have whipped up the first muffins I've made since high school. Don't ask me why...muffins just somehow got away from me as the years went by. I am reasonably sure they, too, will not suck. And a Doctor Who episode is almost ready for us to watch. With hot muffins. Yeah, stress free Saturdays can indeed happen.

Hah! I've had "Day and Night" running through my head.

It sounds like a very nice day for you! You'll have to store it so it's easy to take out and look at.

Indeed - I looked at it a bit on Sunday, and admired it!

streak forming?
I notice you posted a quiet enjoyable day on the 8th as well... sounds like a streak or at elast the potential beginings of one. At least one good quiet day per weekend may be just what you need.

Re: streak forming?
One quiet day per weekend is very good, and I'm looking forward to next weekend as well. Hope you had some good times Saturday and Sunday as well!

Every so often the ordinary joy just catches up with you, doesn't it? 8) And even if it wasn't a great day, fresh muffins and Fred Astaire singing in your head would make it great anyway. I hope it lasts.

Well, Saturday ended nicely, with muffins that turned out quite well, but Sunday was another thing entirely. Still, as I've said elsewhere, it doesn't make me any less happy about Saturday!

Thanks, sweetie. I didn't get a chance to answer folks about Saturday, because Sunday happened, but I'm still grateful for Saturday.

Massive headache put me in bed most of the day. I've recovered in time to sew on a button or two, and fall back into bed, which should help prepare me for a much better Monday. I hope yours is going to be smashing, as well!

I love to think about your daily routine, because I know you in such a narrow way.

Do you know astrobarry? I hate strology but I love him, of course. And I always think the same of him. It's nice to know the real world behind the thing. I worry I don't show enough.

Thanks for being one of the good guys, and showing it.

The same to you, my dear. And please, don't every worry about not showing enough. You do, and it's a lovely glow.
