Ahhh... Sunday Morning

I think we all know each other well enough, by now, that you know that one of my favorite times of the week is Sunday Morning. I love sitting at home with Christopher, reading through the newspaper (which is different than "reading the newspaper"), and making something really bad for us for breakfast/brunch while we watch CBS Sunday Morning and/or old I Love Lucy reruns (or other random things we happen to land on).

In case you've been wondering where my propensity for such gloriously lazy Sunday Mornings comes from, it comes from right here. Oh. Sorry. I don't mean it comes from my blog. I mean it comes from where I am at this moment: home in South Dakota at my parents' house. 

When I rolled out of bed this sunny (and warm: 33 degrees at 8am!) morning, Sunday Morning was on the TV. All three cats were stretched out in various sunbeams (or on the back of the couch), and life was good. I let Mom and Dad each go off to their different church services, and turned off the TV in favor of a few low-key CDs. They should be home any minute now, with the Sioux Falls Argus Leader newspaper in hand. And in about 5 minutes I'll be pulling a lemon and blueberry coffee cake out of the oven. 

It's definitely not the same as stretching out on the couch with Christopher, but I have to admit that it's kind of nice to get back to my roots from time to time.

OK I had been reading down to figure out where you had been on vacation (I've been out of the loop lately and behind on reading--2 bouts of strep will do that), and holy cow no one should ever need to refer to South Dakota as down south! :)
