Sundays should be for slowing down …

and puttering. And church. I admit, I didn’t really want to leave home and go, but I’m glad I did.

First, I enjoyed the the early morning with coffee in an adorable mug:


The goats showed me how to enjoy those piles of posts.  I was going about it all wrong!


Sundays are for enjoying the fruits of your labor.  I should have taken a picture before the pigs got to it:


Also, they are for taking a walk. Pig-farmer and I try to take a walk most Sundays at the General Dacey Trails in Shelbyville. After eating the blackberry pie, I definitely should take a few more walks and enjoy the views offered by Lake Shelbyville:



Ahhhh, then some time at home to visit the Adirondacks (chairs) and read with my faithful assistant by my side:



Now, it’s Monday morning and time to get to work.  I wish you a good morning and happy Monday!

  1. Hmmmm. So you were one of the pie pigs, eh? By your own admission. Tsk. Tsk.

    I’m glad the goats helped you out. They can be so funny. I just pulled blackberry cobbler out of the oven, and I’m going to make some disappear before I go to bed! The weather has been so crazy this summer, I’ve not gotten out and walked like I normally do. Maybe fall will be better. It’s nice to have a faithful assistant at your side. I miss that.
