November Thankfulness - Day 19 - Weekends

Today I am thankful for the weekends.  Well actually more specifically - I am thankful for the days when my son is home.  We don't really have "weekends"  here at Yesteryear Acres.  Saturday brings the same amount of work that Tuesday does.  There is no Friday night celebration because the work week is over.  We have a 7 day work week, 52 weeks of the year.  The only way to tell that it is in fact "the weekend" is that my son is home from school.  I get to see his smiling face and hang out with him for 2 days straight.  Today Mr. Yesteryear Acres, my son, and I all had a lovely lunch together.  We got to chat about all kinds of things and it was nice just to have some time to sit and relax before getting back to work. I like Saturday nights because my son doesn't have homework looming over his head and we have time to catch up on a TV show from the week and enjoy some popcorn and ice cream for the night's festivities.  Sunday morning brings family breakfast. Tomorrow Mr. Yesteryear Acres is going all out with a full Sunday morning feast. He is making sausages, eggs, pancakes - the works. Pretty soon oranges will be in season and we will have fresh squeezed orange juice to go along with our Sunday feasting.  Nothing tastes better on Sunday morning than a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. It is one of my most favorite things in the entire world. Even though we work just as hard -if not harder - on the "weekends" we get to do the work all together and that makes the weekends the best part of each week. Weekends equal more family time.....and for that - I am ALWAYS thankful!!!!!
