Saturdays. They aren't the same as they were before we retired. Saturday was the day you looked forward to all week; it was THE down day. Now? It's just another day. Don't get me wrong – I love being retired, but sometimes I miss the anticipation of Saturday. Anybody else get that? Or is it just me?

So. For me, Saturday started at 6:30 this morning with another headache. But, I got myself up, dressed and out to the laundry. My usual routine. Randy is always so kind and brings me coffee when he walks Blackie. So, while my laundry was washing and drying, I enjoyed a nice, hot cup of coffee and a Mary Higgins Clark book.

After the laundry was done, I made us a breakfast of sausage biscuits. Just love them. And yes, I know they're not good for you! :)

My headache refused to go away, so I continued to ignore it. I worked on my cross stitch project, watched some DVR'd shows and just hung out in my recliner. Randy was in and out; spending some time next door checking out the house next door that Bob & Pam are buying.

This evening we had an early Valentine's Day celebration. Well, kinda. Each year in February, our church puts on a fundraising dinner for its summer Bible School program. Since it falls near Valentine's Day, it is called a Valentine's Day Banquet. This year's theme was a '50s diner.

Valentine's Banquet at Silverhill Church P1130053 Everyone's mingling

We  had hamburgers, fries, and lots of desserts. Members shared their various talents. And folks were encouraged to find their “inner '50s persona” and dress up. Randy wore jeans and a polo shirt. I wore rolled up capri jeans, a tee shirt, jean jacket and socks and tennies. We had a pretty good time.

Now we're home and settled in for the night. My headache has decided it likes it here and seems to be settled in as well. Oh, well. It will pass eventually.

Our weather is looking up. It was in the 60s today and we had the windows and door open for much of the afternoon. Looking even better for tomorrow! So very nice.

Hope your weekend is going well! Until the next time . . .


  1. I still look forward to Saturday. It is the one day of the week that we allow ourselves to eat whatever we want. The rest of the week we try to eat less fat and more fruits and vegetables. Hope your headache is gone.

  2. Looks like a fun 50s themed parties. Sure hope your headache is better by now. No fun...
