A Lazy Sunday
By Bernadette A. Moyer
Today is that kind of a day; a lazy Sunday. There are pork chops and sauerkraut in the slow cooker, the fireplace is burning wood and Happy and Chipper have been close by my side for much of the day. We didn’t have any obligations today and it feels wonderful! Normally our days are full of activities and our “to do” list and a variety of work related projects. For me it is mostly writing projects and wedding officiant projects and home decorating and improvement projects.
My husband is on a wellness kick and working out regularly at the gym, he walks the dogs and tends to many home improvement projects too. Some days we accomplish so much but today we made an effort to enjoy that classic “lazy Sunday.” We make no apologies for our lack of doing today. Most days we are on the run moving from here to there, always something to do and somewhere to go.
It feels great …
My favorite line that I heard from a retired professional is “So what have you been up too?” The response was “As little as possible.” Love that!
“Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week.” Joseph Addison
How often do we fill our days and our schedules with meetings and activities and “things we must do and accomplish” and how wonderful to have a day and a time where the less you do the better you feel. Resting, reading, writing, hanging out with the dogs, talking with my husband, making and eating food … it all sounds so heavenly and it is all right here and right now on this lazy Sunday!
Enjoying my Sunday and I hope you are too …
