The one thing I miss most on those dreadful Sunday mornings are my quiet Friday afternoons. I rarely go out on Friday before evening, if at all. I like to stay in and take a day off the face of the earth. After breakfast and the Friday prayers and rituals, I do a bit of housework, order in some lunch while watching something I like on TV. Then when all the hoopla is over its time its time for my favourite things to come together…
My coffee, my strong black -bottomless- coffee. My beautiful retro coasters. Something to read whether its a good novel, an interesting biography, or the latest issue of my favourite magazine. My iPhone beeping away while being used as a music playing iPod playing my favourite songs. My chocolate, again bottomless though diminishing too fast. I take a bite of chocolate, followed by a sip of the bitter coffee, and the combination is exquisite. I look at pretty thing, or read about interesting things, and let my imagination fly away. I can be whomever I want, wherever I want, however I want while drinking coffee and eating chocolate. If the weather is nice I’d open the window and the gentle breeze would ruffle my favourite curtain, making the softest sound as it hits my favourite acrylic side table where all of my favourite things reside. Then I look up and realise how serene it is and I decide to use my favourite camera to snap a picture and remind myself why I love my Friday afternoons so much.
Nothing but me, quietness, and my favourite things that I love in my favourite afternoon of the week! Its my time and my time only and currently I’m missing it desperately. I wish everyday was Friday, with nothing to do but be lazy. Alas, five more days to go until I’m reunited with my favourite things in the peace and quiet I so urgently seek.
What about you, what are a few of your favourite things?
