Quiet Sunday

It has been a lovely Sunday.  I love Sundays, I have always thought of them as my day.  I have my little morning routine.  I fix us all breakfast and then finish doing the laundry that I didn't get done on Saturday so I can fold the clothes while I watch the morning news.  I used to get up early so that I could sit down at 7 to start watching my favorite garden shows.  But this summer they have not been on.  I hope they come back in September. 

After the morning news I watch Charles Osgood and Sunday morning.  Then at 10:30 I like to garden, but I will start that again when I am able to stay better hydrated.  So this morning I drove up to Thomasville to the Lowe's to see if I could fix my stove.  I bought some new burners and the pans under them, and all fixed.  I also bought a new microwave.  Big day.  

I spent the afternoon quietly finishing reading the Kris Radish book.  I enjoyed it.  Kris gets a little preachy maybe, but it is hard to argue with her.  I really enjoy her style of writing, you might want to check her out at the library.  And this one, The Sunday List of Dreams.  

It was a lovely Sunday.  I felt good, I am trying to just take it by the moment and enjoy my times that I feel well and have the time to do whatever I want.  And tomorrow is one of those glorious Monday holidays.  I hate that they shifted holidays to Mondays, because I loved it as a kid learning the dates of all the holidays, President birthdays, national holidays about wars mostly, and religious days.  So different then now.  But I really understand the concept of three day holidays.  And tomorrow maybe I will go to Joann's sale and buy more ribbon, or maybe I will just stay close to home and the kids.   It is just nice to have a quiet normal day and weekend.


  1. Seeing your sweet face was a very much high point of MY Sunday. Thank-you for coming by.
    I love you...M

  2. Sounds like a mellow, productive day. A good Sunday. I wanted to tell you how fascinated I was by the twining-sentence thing you described a few posts back, but for some reason couldn't send a comment through. May your day yield a gentle evening and restful sleep.

  3. I used to not like Sundays because it meant back to something the next day. Now they are a day of relaxation.

  4. I feel like today is an extra Sunday.
    It's a fabulous feeling.
