I begin planning the perfect Sunday probably the week prior on Thursday night. During the week, I have gathered and made mental lists of everything I would like to accomplish. Yes, the list is long, but my New Year Resolution was not to get stressed out about finishing the laundry, cooking the perfect meal, baking enough fresh bread even grinding my own coffee. Cleaning the cupboards and polishing the silver.
Opening my eyes on a Sunday morning, legs heavy from a good night’s rest and the light from the window keep reminding me to get up with the sun.
So, I rise as I do every Sunday.
7:00 AM: Walk Summer (while I’m simultaneously achieving my morning caffeine intake at Starbucks. Summer meets with his friends and I mine—that quad skim latte, no foam.)
9:00 AM: Clean nearly every surface in the house. *Note to self, use vacuum near Miss H’s room if not yet awake.
11:00 AM: Take a rest. Watch Ina Garten make Jeffery the best brownies known to man. Consequently, make the best brownies known to man for myself later this afternoon.
12:00 PM: After going to the market and putting brownies in the oven, take a quick nap
4:00 PM: Am currently in a food comatose state due do chocolate indulgence.
6:00 PM: Think about dinner and watch the news.
8:00 PM: Check Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram to see what I have missed during my day off.

Every Sunday, I participate in this self-made ritual and take a great deal of time enjoying the moment spent at home. It somehow recharges me for the hectic week ahead of unknown surprises and the expected appointments.
Like I do every weekend, take time to enjoy Sunday for yourself. You’ll be amazed at all of little adventures you’ll discover, both domestic and outdoor.
