Not too many years have gone by, perhaps not even one, where I have failed to make something for DS. Usually a book of some kind, usually documenting some aspect of the past yer. But this year, as he is off at Uni, I have been mulling over an idea. I’ve been busy collecting quotes, grabbing papers, and testing out ideas. My room, which was approaching clean for the first time in a long time, is back to a mess on the floor, desk, satellite table, etc. Not quite to the point of sharing, but maybe a bit of it tomorrow.
One thing that is annoying me is finding the right quotes. I was hoping to find one for every day of the week, but the ones I am finding that do contain the day-name, are not suitable. I’ve shifted, and I think I’ll be doing maybe a snatch of a song instead. What I’ve come up with so far is:
Just another manic Monday
I’m just beginning to see
Listen to Wednesday‘s song
This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays.
It’s Friday, Friday
Saturday, ever-loving Saturday
Sunday mornin’ comin’ down.
The Thursday one is actually a Doug Addams quote, but I may keep it anyway. Maybe the quote itself, and the fact is is the only one that is different, makes it work. The Friday one will make him laugh (or groan) because he HATES that song. Not too sure about the Sunday one – “comin’ down” from what, I have to wonder? But we shall see. Likely it’ll get stuffed in a drawer and never looked at, but I can hope he’ll use it as I intend him to. Really looking forward to seeing him next month, What a gap him being gone has left in our little family unit.
