Sunday, A Day Of Rest

We spent most of yesterday afternoon getting things done around the house, most of it purging the filing cabinet and making it easier to keep track of paperwork. A lot of it was stuff that Brad had to go through because I wasn’t sure if we needed to toss it or keep it. Most of it we tossed. It will be shredded since a lot of it has account information on it. A lot of it was just statements that we hadn’t purged in a couple of years. Now there is more room in the filing cabinet for the stuff we need to keep.

I’m looking forward to quiet time today. I’ve got my devotional reading and my rosary prayers as well as my daily prayers. I should probably spend some time making rosaries today since I’ve not kept up with that hobby like I should.

I don’t do housework on Sundays. I figure if I can’t get to it by Sunday then it can wait until Monday. I try to get everything taken care of during the week and leave the weekends free for other things and resting up from the week.

Sunday is a good day for planning the upcoming week and making sure that I’ll have what I need for meal planning. I can make an online grocery order for Monday morning and start the week off ready to go. Now that the weather has cooled off again I’m in the mood to do some baking and maybe put something in the crock pot. I have left over black bean soup that needs to go in the freezer and we need to pick up smoked brisket from the BBQ place we like.

I pray your Sunday is a day of rest and that you will be ready to take on the week ahead. God bless.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
