Wow, I could really use a Sunday!!!
And by this, I mean a quiet day off to do all of my favorite Sunday things. Sadly, last Sunday I was in class, so there was no Bears Game with chili for me. Total Bummer! As I was sitting in class last weekend, I began thinking about all of my favorite Sunday things that after a crazy busy summer, I am desperately craving. All week, I have been counting down the days to the weekend, so that I could possibly spend my Sunday like this…
Sunday just isn’t the same without pancakes for breakfast. This time of year, it is all about the pumpkin! Or my favorite sweet potato pancakes (which I discovered living in Memphis). Either way, there are tons of recipes to choose from!
And Tea (black to be specific)…
Then off to my favorite Hot Yoga class!
Followed by…A trip to the local market.
Mid-September, I am stocking my basket with Honeycrisp apples and whatever squash is in season.
Then it’s back home…To throw chili into the crockpot
My current favorite is this hearty Vegetarian Chili, but my crockpot always gets a workout fall through winter.
Next up…catch up on some blogging.
I need to update my Recipe Page for sure and there are always some old (circa 2010) posts that need work.
Meanwhile, the noon Bear’s game is recording while the BOY is hard at work in the library.
Perhaps then, I should begin a few loads of laundry which doesn’t sound like fun, but after 2 weeks is totally necessary around here. Meanwhile, catching up on DVRed episodes of Girls, The Closer, or Grey’s Anatomy.
The oven is heated…It is time to bake!
Cornbread goes into the oven.
Sometime around 5pm, the library closes and the BOY returns home exhausted. Luckily, we have a Bears game recorded and the house smells strongly of fall. It is officially time to change into my jersey for Sunday Funday festivities.
A seasonal beer is poured
Dinner is served
As I curl comfortably up on the couch to enjoy a satisfying dinner and (hopefully) a victorious game by the Bears (some years this is more likely than others).
Until, of course, dessert is ready.
Most likely, this too involves pumpkin
By 9:00, the game is over (it goes much faster when you can fast forward commercials), and I am ready to collapse into bed. There are tons of things that didn’t get done, but that is the beauty of having Mondays off. Tomorrow, I can go to the grocery store, get in a long run, finish the laundry, make food for the week, balance my checkbook, and blog all about it.
Whether out with friends…
Or spending the day at home with company…
Fall Sundays are ALWAYS my favorite!!!
Which is why I am desperately seeking Sunday!!!
What is your favorite way to spend Sunday?
Does anyone else have a fall Sunday routine?
