Happy Friday (That Holiday Feeling That Comes Every Week)
All Girl Campers love Fridays!
Fridays are the "I could go camping!" day of the week. Sometimes, when we're lucky, they're even the first morning we get to wake up in our trailers or tents, having sneaked away from home the day before.
In that case, a Friday is a happy day indeed. You wake up under your color-coordinated covers, realize you are NOT still at home, NOT going to work today, NOT stuck doing household chores, and NOT having to do anything for the day that you don't truly want to do.
Start the coffee, stir up the campfire, or just pull the covers up and go back to sleep for a while. It's Friday, and it's YOUR day.
But a Friday that's Departure Day is an excellent Friday as well. You get to be behind the wheel instead of behind the desk, and that's its own rewarding reality. It's a Friday when you can dose on mental vitamin A, for Anticipation, to your heart's content.
And, on those Fridays when camping is just not in the cards, it's still a good day to put the camp-dreams cap on, and give in to thinking about your favorite friends & fun instead of the next thing on your to-do list. Maybe stop by the crafts store on your lunch hour, to pick up supplies for that trailer project you've been meaning to get around to doing.
At Girl Camping World Headquarters, we start every Friday with the 'Happy Friday!' salutation. It gets the day off to a smiling start, whether we're blessed enough to be camping with you girls or not.
Pass it on!
