The weekend.


It's Saturday, the first day of the weekend, but I'm not going to let that bother me. I'm going to act like it's a day like any other day and not give it a different connotation. I will get dressed in a little while and take Tyke for a walk, even though he's already done all of his business out back. It will get me in the proper mood for the rest of the day and I do have to go out this morning and go to the tobacco shop. I will be ready and in the starting blocks.

It hasn't snowed any more, despite the predictions, and even though it snowed a lot in the west of the country, we are left with the couple of inches that we already had. I found out that my boots are snow proof, so that's a relief, and they are warm enough. I just mustn't walk around in wet slush with them. I also found out that if I wear thin socks in my hiking boots, they fit a lot better and I don't get a blister on my toe that turns into a permanent sore spot. Of course, I haven't tried them on long distances yet and will not. I'd rather not tempt fate. 

I think I will watch a lot of cultural programs on television today, because Saturday is the day for it, and there will be the news on. There will be sports later on in the day, but a lot of football matches got canceled because of the snow. The cultural programs are about art and literature and architecture, amongst others. They're usually quite interesting, although not always to my taste, but challenging nonetheless. A person does need to be keeled out of his comfort zone sometimes. It gives you an opportunity to think about certain expressions of art and understand them better, even if you don't take to them or are even repelled by them.


Well, I've just taken my medicines and I have to get the show on the road. It's still dark and quiet outside and it will be a perfect opportunity to walk Tyke. We will have the world to ourselves. 

Have a good day!

Ciao,
Nora

Sounds like you have a great plan for the weekend.

Does Tyke go to the tobacco shop with you?

We woke up to quite thick snow today and then the sun proceeded to come out and it is melting. Will be quite lethal if that freezes tonight.
Hope you enjoy a Cultural Saturday. That sounds good to me.

Still misty here, no snow yet, a green holiday season looks like.
Enjoy the Superculture Saturday!

I love the way you sit down and plan out your day - just as I am doing as I sit with my café au lait and my laptop! So far my plans include laundry, a quick walk to the shops for a few essential items (maybe even a Christmas stocking stuffer or two!), and then I'll be heading over to PG's to watch some programs on his big screen TV. Not terribly exciting, but it is nice to have a plan on a Saturday!
