How is it Sunday already? Please someone explain this. Although this weekend was not a busy weekend like the past weekends have been, I feel more exhausted. Seriously, I feel like I have ran a marathon or accomplished some astonishing task; neither of them happened haha. I am going to blame this on Daylight’s Savings time and one less hour of sunlight. Am I the only one feeling this way?? Anyways, I could have used an extra day.
Today I have taken the time to recharge for the upcoming week. This past week at work was absolutely nuts. I am talking about multiple hours of over-time and working through lunches. So I wanted to take time today to relax and get things organized for the week ahead. Oh, and sleep in! Sleeping in until 8:30 this morning was a real treat.
How does everyone use their Sundays to prepare for the week ahead? Personally, I like to spend my Sunday morning/afternoons cleaning and organizing my apartment. There is just something about waking up to a clean place on a Monday morning. I also try and cook a big, hearty meal. On the menu tonight, pork chops and potatoes. Seriously, it is going to smell amazing in here real soon.
In addition to cleaning, I like to spend an hour or so of uninterrupted time to myself (unplugging when we live in a world of technology is great). Lately, I have been reading a book called, “The Passenger” by Liza Lutz. The story line is about a girl on the run from her past; changing identities and moving through out the United States. I am not quite half-way through yet but it is a page turner! I would highly recommend picking this book up. Add a glass of wine and you have yourself a nice relaxing night!
If anyone has tips for beginner level food prep, I would love to start adding that to my Sunday routine especially for making lunches for the upcoming week. Any tips?
Hope everyone has a great Sunday! Let’s go into this upcoming with a positive attitude even with the cold weather! 🙂
