They are still part of the weekend so it's bliss - you get to sleep in, lounge on the couch all morning with a cup of tea reading books, blogs, or watching a cheesy chick flick on Slice.
But at the same time, it's Sunday. Tomorrow is Monday. Monday equals work. Which means Sunday requires one to do the laundry, tidy and clean the house, make lunch and get ready for the work week. I don't like this part of Sunday. Yet, if I don't partake in these domestic tasks, I will be a stress case when I go to bed, running around at 11pm still trying to get everything ready for the upcoming week.
In order to start off my week right, and leave behind nagging feelings and stress for the week, I have tried to make my Sundays a nice mix of the bittersweet lingering weekend that they bring, and the expectation of a new work week to follow shortly.
A Sunday well spent for me involves a combination of:
reading blogs or a book on the couch
multiple cups of tea
time with family and loved ones, even if it's only an hour visit of tea
baking (last weekend was banana bread, this weekend will be chocolate chip cookies once I buy some eggs. Oops, always check that you have all the ingredients before picking a recipe).
