I love Saturdays. I calculated today that I may live to be 79, according to this calculator. That means approximately 2250 Saturdays are left, including today.

Today I resolved to accomplish so much with my Saturday, and I did. I planted a few flowers, bought some tomato plants and looked at the ground where they will eventually be planted, cleaned up around my yard, began to dig a fire-pit for burning those pesky branches that pile up in my yard, and made some sun tea. I also transported home a lovely free-standing hammock and set it up in a little grove of trees and lilacs in the corner of my back yard. I had much more than this on my to-do list today, but the hammock was calling me, so I took my latest book

And read. And napped. When I woke up the beagle was curled up in my “fire-pit” napping, too.

There’s still a lot on my Saturday “to-do” list, but I have 2249 still ahead of me.

I've found that I work best on Saturdays if I tell myself I'm going to do absolutely nothing. Then everything I do get done makes me feel like an overachiever. It's a good system -- you should try it.
