Saturday's Child

                                        Monday's child is fair of face
                                        Tuesday's child is full of grace
                                        Wednesday's child is full of woe
                                        Thursday's child has far to go
                                        Friday's child is loving and giving
                                        Saturday's child works hard for a living
                                        But the child born on the Sabbath Day
                                        is bonny and blithe and good and gay

Don't ask why this little ditty got stuck in my head today I have no idea, but stuck is was.  It got me to wondering what day of the week I had been born on, so I typed in the first line, that took me to wikipedia which gave me the whole poem.  Next I googled "what day of the week was" and that led me to Days of the Week.  Turns out I was born on a Saturday, but to be honest I don't think I ever worked very hard for my living, though at times any work was too hard.

What day of the week were you born on?

  1. Oh dear, I'm a Thursday's Child. Far to go? It could be good or bad!

  2. I was born on a Monday apparently at 4p.m. in the afternoon - always my worst time of day:)

  5. I think I was born on a Tuesday. I worked extremely hard for my living! Not sure I was ever full of grace, though...

Saturday in the Swamp

Beautiful cold day here, down to 36º last night and only expected to reach 60º today, but the sky is blue and it looks wintery. Lots to get...
