Sunday Afternoons


What is it about Sunday afternoons that are so lazy feeling?  It seems naps are appropriate.  A leisure stroll through a park or a relaxed coffee at a corner cafe.  Sundays seem to bring a sanity to the week ahead.  An opportunity to clear the mind even if it means doing laundry or an errand or two.  Sundays afternoons just have a sense of being casual.  Like the feel of old jeans and a well worn shirt.  That comfortable kicked back mood.  

Sunday afternoons are valuable to me and I try to plan little.  It is somewhat of a me day to not having huge demands on my time.  It is a luxurious day to do what I please.  Read, paint, write as I am now.  Or if so incline, a sip of wine with a friend for a bit of conversation.  It is a sense of balancing.  A sense of cleansing and a sense of beginning anew.  Sundays bring a sense of comfort and mellow the heart.  

Even my cats seem to take Sunday afternoon a little differently then other days.  They seem to be calmer, napping more if that is possible.  They seem to know it is a special day.  Birds beyond the door are heckled less, lizards at the window slapped at less.  There doesn’t seem to be any hissing, either.  A relaxed, laid back tone to the afternoon.

I love Sundays and cherish the time, the afternoon.  I only wish the balance and the feeling of Sundays carried through each day.  I think I would feel as though walking on petals every day if each day felt like Sunday.  So I embrace the day, the afternoon and have a sense of well being for the week to come because of the special laid back tone Sundays offer.
