Thank goodness for Saturday!
I so needed a quiet morning at home.  
The afternoon and evening will be full, 
but this morning there is space and I'm breathing it in deeply.
A fire is warming, "oldies" are playing, dog is sleeping, cat is stalking.  
Emma is relaxing, Paul is reading the paper, Annie is concocting in the kitchen, and my choices include reading, crocheting, making paper snowflakes, 
and going through my Mimi's family recipes to assemble the shopping list for the upcoming "Big Day of Baking".

I found these two great quotes about Saturdays:

“It's the national addiction: warmth on chilly winter nights, innocence on Saturday afternoons, the essence of hearth, home and blissful abandon.” ~Patricia Linden

Middle age is when you're sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn't for you. ~Ogden Nash

I hope you have a great Saturday!
