At the rate this year is passing, 2011 will be here in the blink of an eye. I always look forward to Saturdays. It's my day to do what I want. I work five days a week and Sunday is God's day so I feel entitled. Of course that pesky housework has a tendency to interfere.
So I stay up late on Friday and Saturday nights enjoying my time and knowing it will be gone entirely too fast. Some of those evenings are spent writing or reading and others in mindless tasks that help me destress from a hectic week.
So while the cry has always been Thank God for Friday, I think maybe mine is Thank God for Saturday -- my favorite day of the week.
I've been back at work for over two weeks -- seems longer but that probably has to do with working my regular job and doing edits when I got home. I got them back to the editor on schedule and now I'm working on the book that is due November 1st.
My mountain research trip was great. I went to Biltmore and while I'll never know what it's like to live in a 250 room house, I hope to one day experience something so grand in heaven.
I visited Murphy (the site for With Not a Spoken Word). It started to rain and I took this shot at the Hiwassee Dam. I also saw Fields in the Wood and Chimney Rock. There's an elevator that goes 22 stories up inside the mountain and climbed steps to the top of the mountain to take in the 65 mile view. We could see Lake Lure which was the site of filming for Dirty Dancing.
As always, the views were majestic and the time off was great.
