Six Word Saturday - July 9

Here's what I have to say for Six Word Saturday this week...

Saturday means more time for blogging!

I don't have to work this Saturday (though I do next week), so at nearly 3pm in the afternoon you can find me still sitting here in my kaftan, hair uncombed, brunch consisting of  iced tea and a stale cinnamon roll, in an absolutely quiet house surrounded by napping furkids, and doing what I love best... blogging! I'm not sure if I enjoy reading/commenting more or writing my own posts more.  It is rare that I have time for both as I will today.  John is at work, and has an evening function to attend, so I have a bit more alone time than usual and I intend to put it to good use.  Well, not good use like tackling the laundry or floors, though I may manage a bit of that too, but good use like sitting down to share company with my fellow bloggers! There is truly nothing I enjoy more. 

My greatest fantasy in life would be all the free time I wanted to read and write without limitation or the need to attend to any daily responsibilities... hey, a girl can dream! I seriously don't think I would ever get tired of it.  Maybe a deserted island with reliable satellite-fed Internet, an indestructible laptop, a few furkids, my devoted spouse to catch me something to eat now and then, that would be the life!  Would I still be able to come up with things to write about?  I'm pretty sure I would... at least I'd like to give it a try!   My list of blog post topics is about as large as my collection of craft project materials and instruction books.  If I have to complete all of them before I die, I might just live forever! :-)

I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday too.  Perhaps I should go wash my face and comb my hair now, before my husband comes home to change for his meeting - at least make a pretense of being active, even though he knows better and will just roll his eyes and smile. I am so blessed that he is a patient man who understands my need to play here, and how it feeds my soul!


  1. Sounds like you have a wonderful day ahead of you! :-)

  2. Love spending my days like that! :) (Found your blog from Six Word Saturday)

  3. Your day sounds divine. YOur 'dream' idyllic!

  4. They could be my words too! Most weeks, Saturday and Sunday are my biggest blogging days.

  5. I seem to never have enough time to read and coment these days, but now and then I get a few in ...LOL
    Have a wonderful time !!

  6. The same goes for me JL, during the week it is so hard for me to make time to read, comment, and write, and if there is time my brain is often dead from a long, stressful day of work. I should get up early to write, but can't find the motivation when I feel tired. As you can see, I've done more reading/commenting than writing so far today, but that's fun for me, it makes me feel uplifted to share in what others have done. Now I think I'll settle back in and get to work on the post in progress. If only I could clone myself, or find a way to have my brain work on two different functions at once! (Hmmm, maybe that's the problem - it could be already doing that! :-)
    Focus, Josie, focus!!

  7. How many of us could say 'ditto' to your post. Blogging and commenting are my favourite ways of relaxing.

    I just need more time to do it and a way to limit my feelings of guilt when I should be doing something, anything other than surfing the blogosphere.

    I like the island idea, when you find that island can you let me know, so I can book a one way ticket.

    Have a relaxing weekend :-)

  8. Oh I know...I love blogging too. And like you, I don't know which I like better...reading and commenting...or writing my posts? Both are fun.

    I hope you enjoyed your day!
