Perspectives: Careful Planning for a Weekend Outing

Saturday Before: I shall wear smart slacks and sassy scarves.


Sunday Before: I shall study the local history.

Monday Before: I shall cheerfully clean for a perfectly delightful homecoming.

 Tuesday Before: I shall leave work on time.  Daahlings, I do have a life.

Wednesday Before:  I shall pack shiny apples and hot cocoa.

Thursday Before: Must get to bed early for my beauty rest.

Something fun and flirty?
Something freshly laundered?
Something . . .Anything . . .
that frickin’ fits!
Don’t you just love planning?
