Sunday Afternoon


I've got that satisfied Sunday afternoon relaxation thing going.  (Which always makes me suspect I am forgetting something.  But what???)  I love our church.  Have I mentioned that?  Why yes, I think I have. ;D  Not perfect, I know, but GOOD.

Made a big lunch, because I don't make dinner on Sunday evenings.  Chicken in Italian dressing, baked yams, salad, and berry cobbler.  (Which would explain the appeal of a nap...)  It's a nice, lazy day.  A fitting end to an under-ambitious semi-Spring-Break week.  Not completely lazy mind you, we did a bit of school work and - on the one or two nice days - some yard work, too.  The boys mowed yesterday and I got two loads of laundry dried on the line - always a hopeful milestone for me.  I'd prefer to dry nearly all of it outside :D

But this is what cracks me up.  The boys were up between 6 and 6:30 every morning this week.  You know, so as not to miss a moment of play time.  They've logged a ton of hours with their Legos, and Dino-opolis has seen a burst of activity. 

But what do you bet that everyone will have trouble getting out of bed tomorrow morning?  Huh?

My daughter is the same way. I have to wake her on weekdays, but she's up at the stroke of 7 am on Saturday. Ugh! Glad you enjoyed your break!

I just read your earlier post and I'm sorry about your mom's breast cancer - Just to let you know I am a survivor of breast cancer (actually Hodgkins, breast, and colon - but who's counting :) )
God has been good through it all and I just wanted you to know that I'll remember your mom in prayer. Glad she's getting to go ahead with the trip. My Dad is fighting lung cancer. He is 81 and the outlook is not good at least for this earth - The eternal outlook is wonderful. I'd appreciate your prayers as well. Your blog always makes my day!

Thanks Ava :D My husband has had Hodgkin's too - about 20 years ago. Sorry about your dad, but oh-so-glad about his eternal security. That makes all the difference, doesn't it?

Squirt is like that too! During the school days she's rarely up before 7, but on Saturdays, she's up by six am. What's with that!? Kids are so cool!
