Saturday and Sunday are the two shortest days of the week. They are never long enough, Monday sneaks up to begin the work and school week before you realize that the weekend ever began. It is a time for outings with the baby.
The chance to go to the park, out to eat or window shop is something that we haven't done in months. Slowly we are getting back into the habit of going out to do things just because we can. It is nice to be able to go out with the baby, just the two of us and be able to drive.
The invitations to church came early on, and we gave it a try. The jury is still out on whether or not we'll continue to go. It all depends on how the baby does with the crowd on a continuing basis.
Another perk is the ability to allow the baby to watch Saturday mornign cartoons, what there is left of them anyway. I noticed recently that “Land of the Lost” is now on; I vaguely remember it from when I was a child and the baby seems to enjoy it. She also enjoys the covered porch and riding her bicycle down the sidewalk.
Sunny days are rather enjoyable with the morning sun giving just enough warmth to make it pleasant outside. It is nice to be able to open the windows let in the fresh air while I sit and watch the baby play. I should consider an outdoor table set so we can have lunch out there on pretty days. The warmer weather means more picnics, since we are no longer waiting for appointments we will be having them in the park and on the front porch.
Weekends are now reserved for me and my little girl to have fun. We are rather enjoying ourselves.
