Saturday Morning

It's Saturday morning and I'm officially kicking off a more relaxed weekend than I've had in quite some time.

At the present moment, I'm still in bed, though I won't be for long.

In about an hour I have to catch a bus to my usual Saturday morning yoga class.  I almost talked myself into skipping it today, but reminded myself just how much better I really do feel when I take those 90 minutes or so to exercise, to meditate, to be quiet.  So, yoga it is.

I have to get the sheets from the bed I sleep in at mom and dad's into the laundry before I go, too.  They have company coming to stay tonight, and when there is company coming I get displaced from the big queen-sized bed with a comfy mattress, to the smaller full-sized rather firm futon across the hall.  It's firm enough that if the company will be there for more than a night, I usually give up my escape to mom and dad's and go home to grandma's, thereby ensuring that my whole body won't ache from the hard mattress.  But this is only one night of displacement, and going "home" to grandma's tonight would cost me my lovely Sunday morning of sleeping in, and then having time with a completely empty house in which to just relax.  And that is a price I'm not willing to pay.  So, I'll wash the sheets, clean up the bedroom that is "mine" most of the time, and move my things across the hall for a night.

Other than yoga, though, and a bit of cleaning in preparation for the houseguests, I have NOTHING planned for this weekend.  Or at least nothing firmly on the schedule.  And that feels beautiful.

And with that, I'm off to crawl out of bed and start the day!  Hope it's a great one for all of you!
