It's Friday!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

I haven't had a day job in thirteen years, and yet I still look forward to Friday afternoon. I got out at 3 pm (after starting at 6 am -- loved those flexible hours).  Of course, the truth is, I work a lot harder and longer hours now that I work for myself than I ever did when I "worked for the man."

Friday. It's kind of a fun word.

Fridays often mean FISH FRY DAY. Around my neck of the woods, that means beer-battered fried haddock. That's the fish of choice. It's really quite wonderful. And the fries. Yum. I like the kind that come with a little bit of cornmeal on them. Makes them extra crunchy. Of course, crinkle fries are pretty good, too. Doused in malt vinegar .... mmm mmm good!

Friday is the gateway to Saturday. From May until early October, that means YARD SALE SEASON. (In fact, I'm going to two yard sales this very morning because soon I'll be going through withdrawal.) The faux roses and the milk glass vase in the picture at right came from a rummage sale last week. The roses were 50 cents; the vase was a quarter. They look quite pretty in my living room. I have an old rose bush out in the yard and the blooms are the same color and size. It has only two blooms right now (and it's a BIG bush), so this vase of flowers will be a nice reminder until it blooms again next spring.

Friday. Can't help it. I still look forward to it.

What's your favorite day of the week?
