What is Your Favorite Day of the Week?

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

This is not one of those life-changing questions, but it was one I was pondering this morning while sitting outside taking in the morning glow on Fishhawk Lake and listening to the chants of the various birds saying good morning. Tuesday is my favorite day of the week.

Tuesday Morning quotes - Life is beautiful, life is still beautiful, i' am just enjoying it


It's one of those days that's rather forgotten. The day after Monday, which can be harried as people catch up after the weekend and appointments are scheduled and people just hit the ground running on Mondays.Tuesday on the the other hand is known for nothing.There's a bit of a calm after the storm of a typical Monday. It gives people a breather. Wednesday is Hump Day, Thursday is the day before the weekend, and then we all know what Friday through Sunday can bring for all of us, in different forms, but the weekends have a spot all of their own for the most part.

Tuesdays are notoriously a low retail day. Senior discounts are on Tuesdays. I went to see Cirque de Soleil on a Tuesday night recently, because Wednesday, the original day we planned to go, was much more expensive. See my point? 

I love Tuesdays for those reasons and just because....I think I might have been born on a Tuesday. According to some astrology book years ago, I think it told me that "my day" was Tuesday. And I almost feel like I'm alone on this day as a favorite, because when I tell people it's my favorite day, they don't have much to say--it kind of surprises them!

In today's history, there are many birthdays of artists, composers, writers. William Randolph Hearst was born on this day. Joan of Arc arrived at the seige of Orleans on this day in 1429. My brother-in-law and a past boyfriend of mine were born on this day. There's actually a website called It Happened on a Tuesday. It asks you to answer trivia questions. Obviously, people have more time to kill on a Tuesday, because not much else is going on.

And I'm going shopping today--I'll bet I get some kind of deal--


What's your favorite day of the week and why?

Gayle, definitely Wednesday. There's a renewed sense of willpower on Wednesday that isn't there on Tuesdays. nothing against Tuesdays, but it does seem like a long haul usually (if you work from Monday through Friday). What's funny though is that I view Thursday like the worst day of the week (least enjoyable), it's the day before the weekend!

Love that this got featured - such a sweet and thought provoking post. My favorite day? Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Lol. I just can't pinpoint one - they are all what we make of them. But, I get your Tuesday feeling of peace...

Every day can be a favorite day... a day is what you make of it after all!  Although starting next Tuesday - Tuesdays will be my favorites until mid September.  Sailing season has begun and thats my sailing night!

No favorite day, but what happens on a particular day can make it a favorite of the week--or the least favorite.

Gayle, I've never really thought about it but after reading your post, I must agree that Tuesday is a great day.  Mondays are just horrible and Wednesday is the hump you have to get over to get to the rest of the week.  Honestly, I am not sure if I have a favorite day, it just depends on what happens that can make it or break it.

See, Sheila, you gave a good example of exactly what I'm talkin' about re: Tuesdays! I think I've heard about that movie....

Debb, honestly? I was shocked that this stream-of-consciousness post got featured! But, not complainin'....and your choices of favorite days are spot on (from my knowing you)

Irma, beautifully said. 

Ahhh, SAILING, Robert, that was in my past, and I understand your excitement. One of my favorite moments was when the motor was turned off, it gets all quiet and the wind took over!

Norma, it's sometimes nice that we don't have to "repeat" the same day, but have a fresh chance 24 hours later.

Jack, I appreciated your ruminating on this!

To tell you the truth, I've never even thought about it. I suppose if I did, I'd say it was Wednesday... half the week is gone, but there's still another half to get stuff done!

Interesting! I just googled it and found out some interesting facts about Tuesday. I really don’t have a favorite day but I think Tueday is the best day of the week.

Nina, good way to look at it!

Eric, I might have to do that myself--thanks...

Kristin, this one sort of reminds me of your quotes posts on Mondays...food for thought.

Pat, you're a DEAR!!  Thank you so much!

Tuesday is trash day (literally that is when the trash is picked up and it's a big deal). My favorite day of the week is Monday, the calm after the storm, because Friday, Saturday and Sunday are very busy days for me.
