DINK #249 Magical Saturdays

Posted on : 27-11-2010 | By : Lynn | In : Uncategorized


I love my Saturdays when they’re like mine was today except for the fact that I have to wake up at 7:30 am so that I have enough time to strip the bed and get a load of laundry going, feed the dogs and cats, shower, dress and grab a quick bite to eat so that I can get to my Saturday 12 step meeting at 9:00am.  Then I soak in the inspiration of people who are working on themselves so that they can have the life of their dreams and afterward I’m off to yoga with Paula Harnish at Kula Yoga.

After yoga, I met a long-time friend of mine (from boarding school days!) and had a great lunch with her catching up on her week and all that is going on with her (by the way, she has an incredible wrought iron Mexican lighting business that you can learn more about by going to http://www.illuminaries.com/).  I am so grateful that I still feel as comfortable and myself with her now as I did when I was 15.  Then I was off  to take Lamar Boulevard home because I love to see the autumn colors of the leaves in Pease Park and grab a coffee on the run.  I picked up David and we took off to see another good friend’s newly refurbished home off of South Congress and Ben White.  We met a friend of hers (who I felt instantly connected with) and all struck out to enjoy the East Austin Art Tour (http://www.eastaustinstudiotour.com/) stopping to see various artists.  Our friend had money burning a hole in her pocket so we had fun helping her figure out what pieces of art would look fabulous her new home.  I might not be able to spend much of my own money now, but I can easily spend someone elses! Some of the artists we visited with and enjoyed were Katie Rose Pipkin, Court Lurie, Judy Paul and Jim Pennick.  Finally, it was home to a nice healthy meal and the latest episode of “Foley’s War” (ttp://www.foyleswar.com/) that had arrived via Netfix.  We’re all comfortably sleepy (except for maybe the Paul dog who didn’t get a run today) and ready to cash in with a good book and a good night’s rest.

These are what “magical” Saturdays are like full of food for the heart and soul, sharing conversations with old and new friends and exploring the wonders of Austin along the way.  How do you spend your Saturdays?
