Weekend Mornings

Saturday mornings around here are the best! My favorite routine is to get up fairly early, start something baking for a weekend treat (my favorite is cinnamon rolls, I made pumpkin cinnamon rolls this weekend) make my coffee and then fold laundry and watch one of my favorite shows (usually Good Neighbors, a British show from the 70’s).

We do a lot of laundry in this house, so I like to do a load or two Friday night and fold it Saturday morning with my coffee and entertainment, it makes the job more fun. 

P.S. If you want the recipe for the Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls (with caramel drizzle!) this is the one I used: https://theplayinghouseblog.wordpress.com/2011/11/20/pumpkin-cinnamon-rolls/

Happy Weekend!

    What a great idea to make it a morning task. I might have to start giving this a try! I HATE laundry. Mostly because of the unfinished basement I walk through/ kitty litter box . I might have to do a remodel down there to make it more tolerable. Ok.. since you fessed up about 1970’s British TV shows… I will admit… I LOVE Keeping up Appearances. 🙂

      It does make it more fun! I’m not a fan of laundry either, but since I start this routine I actually look forward to it! I’ve only watched a couple episodes of Keeping Up Appearances, but I thought it was hilarious! I love lots of British shows, To The Manor Born, Faulty Towers, Black Adder, Executive Stress…:)

    Have to say I am not a morning person lately but you’ve peaked my interest again. I also fold laundry while watching television. It alleviates the boredom of routine tasks. It is amazing but when I was younger, I didn’t care for British humour. Can you believe it!? I am much smarter now. 🙂

      Yeah, I have found lately that celebrating the small and ordinary is a blessing. I’ve started lighting candles and playing music while cleaning, in addition to the coffee and TV when folding laundry. If you think about it, it’s something that you just HAVE to spend a lot of time (over the years) doing, so you should enjoy it.
      I have always loved British humor, but we didn’t have cable growing up, so I watched shows that were not typical for my age group. Like the shows I mentioned and Hogan’s Heroes, and The Red Green Show. Ah, good times. 🙂
