Slower Sunday

Today, I started the day much more relaxed. I will try not to think about tomatoes until tomorrow.

Yesterday was a madwoman shopping day.  We needed chicken feed, coffee, toilet paper....necessary items.  I got my car an oil change (saving Hubby the work).  Also, we took too long to get our 17 year-old her driver's education classes, so we had to get her a new permit.   I was whipped at the end of unloading and putting everything away.  Today, we deserved to relax.  Hubby worked overtime this weekend too.

Hubby and I took our coffee to the front porch, and watched the sunrise for the first time this fall.  In fact, I can't remember watching it this summer, we were so busy.  Today, we enjoyed it. One kiddo even joined us.

I can hear the ragweed growing out in my vegetable garden, but today I will not listen.  Today, I will relax.  I keep repeating it in hopes I'll listen to myself, ha ha!

I had to chuckle at your "I can hear the ragweed growing . . . " Hasn't it been hardy this year? Here, too!

Good for you for taking today off. I'm going to do the same . . . except for a couple of things that have to be done.

Good for you. I keep telling my self that I am going to have a Sunday where I do nothing but relax. So far it hasn't happen. Something always comes up. Next Sunday I am locking my door and hiding the phone.

Mama Pea it was a pretty good day, aside from getting my yarn in a knot. I pulled it out and out came a mess of yarn. I had to end the row, cut it, And add back on. Otherwise, I got two motorcycle rides in, a visit with both sides of the family too.

Michelle, I hope you get your day off. It's tough to do it these days. I put a load of laundry out, and both Hubby and I were taking it down after our last motorcycle ride.

I worked Sunday morning, 9am-2pm which meant I went to bed early Saturday night (for a change), and then got a nap Sunday afternoon (also for a change). Other than feeding and watering the animals, and doing dishes, I didn't do much else at all...
But that was enough. LOL
Prayers everyone has a great week ahead, and a safe one too.
God bless.

RB, thank you. We had a very nice weekend. Saturday I ran around town picking up needs so it was so nice to take a break on Sunday.
