It’s good practice to have an unstructured weekend. At first there’s this feeling of relief that nothing is on the calendar. One can linger over extra coffee. Catch up on magazines. Have afternoon tea.
But something happened. I noticed it was hard to sit still for long. Not having planned anything, I began to notice things I’d neglected due to a busy schedule. And once I started working on these things, I realized the day had breezed by. By no means are all the weekend chores finished, but it feels good.
So rather than being a lazy Saturday, it’s been a productive and satisfying one. I could get used to this brand of Saturday.
