Starting today, I would love to talk about my favorite things on Fridays!
Many ministers have a weekday off. Sunday is considered by many churches as a work day, so in order to get a two day weekend, many ministers (I say many because I have at least one friend who works Monday-Friday regardless of Sunday being a super busy day- just the differences in churches!) get a weekday off.
At Altamesa, the ministers get Friday off.
I love it.
It is hard for me to remember a time when I didn't have Fridays off. I've been working in full time ministry for 6 years now, and at my previous congregation I had Fridays off too.
My absolute favorite thing to do on Fridays is sleep in a bit (my pups don't allow me to sleep in a whole lot), get a nice big cup of coffee, and watch the Today show while Pinterest-ing.
During the Fall and Winter months, when I lived by myself, I would always build a fire too.
Unfortunately, our current house has a fireplace that doesn't work very well, so it looks like I'm not going to be able to build a fire here when the cold weather comes... boo.
But I love the Today show. I have watched it since I was little. Most times curled up with my mom on her bed when school was out. In fact, at 29, I still do that when I'm home. Except now my sassy sister joins us. :-)
I love Fridays.
Coffee and the Today Show- my first Friday Favorite!
