Savoring Sundays

Today, the wind is howling.

Today, the fence fell down.

Today, the temps are dropping and even old dog is stayin’ inside.

Today, Elvis, Merle and others will join me when I simmer, sauce and sample.

Today is Sunday and it feels like it’s all mine.

“Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What’s your favorite day of the week? How do you savor it?

  1. Hmmm, my favorite day of the week? After much consideration and because everyday of the week is like any other (sometimes I don’t know if it’s Tuesday or Thursday and I don’t much care), I’d have to say it would be the days I don’t have to leave the farm to run errands. I’m worse than a car-seat-phobia-ridden two year-old that “don’t wanna go no where”.
    Your day sounds pretty darn satisfying!
    Rock on MJ. 🙂

    • Uh-huh, that’s it exactly…. days at home with ho particular schedule are the best days – whatever day that occurs on!

      Rockin’ it in West MI

    • I agree with “The View Out Here” comment. Any day I don’t have to go anywhere is my favorite. I’m glad you enjoy your Sundays so much.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful day. I guess Sunday might be my favorite, too, since Motor Man and I always find something fun to do. (Of course, late in the day on Sunday, I sometimes get a sad feeling – leftover from my school days when I HATED going to school….)

    • You know, I always get a little sad on Sunday nights, too … mostly b/c Mondays mean I have to leave again and let go of my Sundays!

      Your Sundays sound fun 🙂 MJ

  3. Sounds like a good day. I like most every day but Sundays. Sundays represent to me the day my ex came and took my children away to lunch or a movie and they would come back in a bad mood.

  4. I would say Saturday’s @ this point…typically get up early, bring two cups of coffee back to bed w/ me..then most saturdays I will cook a big breakfast…then depending on the time of year…find something to entertain me around the farmstead (pruning the apple trees in a couple of weeks for example) well, the dinner bell just sounded…better run. DM

  5. Macaroni and cheese tonight with crunchy topping, took a chance and mixed in some black pitted olives, diced celery, and why not? some Mrs. Dash. Just experimenting away down here.
    Oh no — the fence fell down!? That is windy Michigan weather coming off the lake or from up north. So if Frankie is good with staying inside, no hurry to fix it — right?

    • fun on the experimental foods front 🙂

      Yes we had shear winds coming from the West (Lake MI). Frankie doesn’t venture too far out into the yard anymore but I know he will discover it soon enough. We can’t fix it until it thaws a bit more. 14F this morning! Just the cold alone make his trips outside rather short 🙂 MJ

  6. Sunday here was a day much like you’ve described.

    I think my favorite day is Saturday. It brings a break from the office routine and the promise of another morning to sleep late!

    • Understandable — I need to treat Saturday better; I treat her like a work horse, the day to get all my chores around the house done. I’ll take a page out of your book, Terri!

  7. Love my Sundays! Love this post!

  9. I think Saturdays are my favorites. We get up, go to yoga early. When we get back, we make a big breakfast, usually some kind of pancake, and listen to Harry Potter on CD.

  10. Whatever day you choose, I’m glad you are making it special.
