I’ve learned the importance of taking time for yourself. Sunday has easily turned into my favorite day of the week! On a typical Sunday morning with the kids I make a big breakfast, bigger the better. (Nothing makes one relax more than a full belly) My son likes to have his breakfast on the porch with me, drinking coffee, especially on a crisp morning with a little fog still in the fields and the cows grazing is a fantastic start to the day; the sounds and smells of the morning air in the country are priceless.
The afternoons consist of doing whatever it is we want or enjoy doing that we don’t always have time for during the week. Followed by more food of course. Obviously eating well is important business around here! Grilling would probably be at the top of the list. Beer can chicken, fresh veggies from the garden, stuffed jalapeño peppers, fried zucchini, cucumber/tomato salad, and grilled corn just to name a few….topped off with homemade funnel cakes at the picnic table.
Late afternoon short naps are also a favorite Sunday affair. Fresh air and a peaceful room to put your feet up bring instant relaxation. These are the things that can take a regular day from ‘just another day’, to a favorite day of the week!!
