What weekends are for

Weekends are for pancakes and syrup and mugs full of hot coffee.

Weekends are for unexpected dinners out with friends and chasing hyper kids.

Weekends are for adventures and trying new things and getting outdoors.

Weekends are for grabbing fancy martinis and taking two hours away to simply just be a woman.

Weekends are for laundry and vacuuming and cleaning dirty bathrooms.
Or for letting all of that sit there because chores can wait.

Weekends are for making forts out of blankets and pillows.  For crashing toy trucks into walls.  For watercolors and marker-stained fingers.

Weekends are for baking cookies and having purposeful family meals.

Weekends are for extra long workouts.

Weekends are for church and Sunday afternoon naps and a little bit of quiet.

Weekends are for get-togethers with the oldest of friends.  For conversation and catching up and sharing in real life together.

Weekends are for reading and movie-watching.

Weekends are for grilling and for swimming in mini-pools in the backyard.

Weekends are for sleeping in and taking it easy and getting back to you.

It's that kind of weekend.
