Clearing away the rust of the week...*

If I had TiVo, I wouldn’t have to debate over sleeping late or waking before 9 to watch CBS Sunday Morning. I like to wake up at 10 or 10:30 on Sundays.

At 10:30 this morning, The Cat was in her usual place on the area rug in my sunroom/office glaring at me because her spot of sunshine was MISSING. And I actually said, “I can’t make the sun come out.”

I love to putter. I listen to the podcast of American Public Media’s Weekend America while I do dishes, wash clothes, put library books for return in a stack by the door, spray the tub and shower with Mr. Clean Extra Power, repot a plant, shake out the duvet, fluff couch pillows…

Sunday afternoon naps are my favorite. I need my beauty sleep.

If it doesn't rain, I might take the bike out for a spin.

The most excitement I want on a Sunday would be something like the season premiere of Family Guy, which is tonight.

  1. I used to get that same look when my older cat was allowed to go outside. If it was raining, he'd look at the rain, look at me, look at the rain, glare at me, stomp off in disgust. He didn't believe that I couldn't stop the rain.

  2. I can't imagine actually sleeping until 10 am but I did get my paper and tea and go back to bed. Weekends are such luxury. More! More! I need more of them.
