I love Sundays.
I am able to sleep in. Much later than I can on Saturday morning because my body's time clock has yet to realize it is the week-end. It knows by Sunday morning.
I love the Sunday paper and the assortment of sections that prove so entertaining and full of interesing articles I enjoy. The book section, the travel section, the garden section.
I find it difficult to relax and read the paper on...say a ... Tuesday, so Sunday is perfect to catch up on all the world actvities and local issues that the radio is only able provide sound bites.
I use to go to Church services while living in the Lexington area. I truly miss that and have not found a substitute place of worship up here. I loved the mega church atmosphere, the ability to just submerge and lose yourself among the other 5,000 worshipers. I am funny that way I suppose. God knows I'm there, that's all that matters.
I have no agenda, no list of things to accomplish as I do on Saturday. I am able to just read a book, surf the Internet, tidy up the house at my leisure, and watch some sports. On that note, thank God it is Basketball season! I am not much of a Football fan, other than loving to go to games during my time at High School and College because there was socializing and drinking involved. Other wise, it is just a bunch of over sized men in tight fitting pants trying to whack the blazes out of each other. I much prefer a beautifully executed hook shot by a college athlete. And I love seeing Ricky Pitino stamp his foot on the sideline, or Billy Donovan morphing into a force to be reckoned with.
I'll write some e-mails, send some snail mail and call my Mom on the phone.
I am addicted to snail mail, maybe since I had my first pen-pal so many years ago. It is a thrill I have never gotten over, opening the mail box and pulling out a hand addressed envelope! To this day, I love it. I send out cards to many people on a weekly basis....kind of like my idea of paying it forward.
This day will find me and my Man going to the movies, maybe. Or making chili. What ever it is, I will be spending time with him.
Speaking of which....time to get off the computer!!
