November calls for layers. Jeans with holes worn in them. Chenille house shoes trimmed in fur with real soles to step outside if needed. I’m pretty sure nothing I have on matches, but it feels good, like a Sunday.
Our favorite blankets folded and ready for the taking on a nearby ottoman. Soft lighting and a few more candles lit than normal. The decanter is filled with hot cocoa, alongside giant marshmallows for roasting. November looks good on you Sunday.
My camera roll reflects my life. The caption for this photo would read, “Happy Sunday. It’s ‘be good to you’ day. Which should be everyday, but it’s a little bit sweeter on a Sunday.”
It’s how this day began.
Sunday has rapidly become my favorite day of the week. What I do today and the care I take, sets the stage for tomorrow. There are no plans for today and no ‘to do’ list that needs checking off. The list will be looked at tonight.
This meme by SC Lourie watered my heart and describes this Sunday feeling spot on.
It reminded me of the quote, “Enjoy where you are on the way to where you’re going.” My hope is no matter what you do today, enjoy it.
She is the Queen of Chemex, so it makes me a little nervous when I hand her one that I make. This morning as I was making it, thoughts of her and how happy she is right now were floating through my mind. Her love from England is here, so her world feels complete today.
In a sense it was made with love.
She cradled the cup in both hands, took a sip and closed her eyes to savor the moment. Was it up to her standards? I waited for her response.
She released a smile and said, “That is a perfect Chemex.” Day complete before 11:00 am.
Sunday has an ease about it. It’s a small luxury to sit in the middle of an unmade bed without any rush to make it up. There is no rush today.
I have two laptops. One for business and one for personal. I enjoy typing blog posts on the business laptop. The keys are raised and feel good as I type. I’m sitting in the middle of my unmade bed with a candle lit and a cup from the Chemex.
There is natural light from the windows.
I’ve said no to friends today that wished to include me in their plans. I thought about going to the grocery store, but there’s food in the fridge.
I’ve had the stereo on everyday since my daughter’s been gone. At first it was for extra sound. Then I began to feel God’s love through the music.
This song says, there’s never been a moment that I was not loved by Him, but it doesn’t always seem that way. My daughter is on a very long and full flight home today, but she made the comment, “I feel so alone.” I know she’s not, and I pray that God will place someone in her path to bring her comfort.
So where could I go that I could wander from your sight
And where could I run and never leave behind
Your all consuming
Never ending love
There’s never been a moment, no
We might lose sight of Him, but He never loses sight of us. I hope you can feel His love in the music.
