Sometimes I feel like I live for the weekends. My husband and I both commute one hour each way to work and then there's the classes, the evening hours, and all the other "fun" stuff that comes with adulthood. A few months ago I decided that I would take my husband's advice and reclaim my weekends. Yes, I still have papers to write, laundry to clean, and errands to run, but we've found a leisurely pace that works for us.
My husband works a lot weekends in the fall, so I took this picture to represent our last "summer Sunday". Whenever we can we like to sleep late (8:00 a.m.) and enjoy a pot of coffee with some homemade goodies like these sticky buns or a full breakfast with pancakes, bacon, and the works. Somehow our laptops always make it to the breakfast table, but we use the time to play on Facebook, blog, and do other non-work activities on the web. I also spend the time researching recipes for weekend dinners. Our best meals are on Sunday nights.
I'll be sharing one of my latest Sunday dinners in an upcoming post: Stuffed Pork Loin.
