hello sunday.


Finally, Sunday! It has been a long and busy week my friends, hence the lack of posts. With Joshua being sick with the flu I struggled to catch up all week. I'm still finishing up loads of laundry and as I finish those new piles are accumulating. Jonas missed two days of school this week and Jess has the signs of a winter cold. It has been a long week.

Friday the kids spent the night at my parent's while I hosted a meeting at my house. Even though we worked I had a great time sitting around the fire with friends, food and wine! My intentions were to wake up early on Saturday and workout but I slept until ten. I can't tell you the last time I slept in that late! I guess my body needed that rest. And it's so weird waking up with no kids in your bed and a quite house. Saturday was spent with the kids, Chipolte for lunch, sled riding, homemade pizzas, crafts, baths and cuddles in mom's bed. Jon came home from work to all of us snuggled in bed. The kids sleeping and me reading my book, which I can't seem to put down Catching Fire part two of the Hunger Games series.

And now it's Sunday, my favorite day of the week. As I type away I have sausage from the Italian store slowly cooking and my waffle batter resting. I'm sipping my coffee while Jonas plays a little of his Star Wars video game, Joshua makes a pipe cleaner craft, Jess plays in her kitchen and Jon reads the newspaper and checks Mr. Miner's blog. It's a good start to a sunday. We have an open house this afternoon and that means a clean house. Instant good mood for me! Although, these open houses are starting to get old. I'm ready. Let's sell and move on. I'm really really ready. I'm not a very patient person and the slow process of selling and buying a house is starting to get to me. So, wish us luck for today's open house.

Tonight we're making Thai chicken coconut soup, steamed dumplings and lettuce wraps for dinner. With all this food I should workout, but I'll save that for tomorrow. Hopefully Monday will bring a fresh start to our week and we'll be back on track with our schedule.

What does your Sunday bring for you?
Drop me a not, say hello. I would love to know.


  1. Sounds like an amazing weekend for you and your fam <3 I had a hard time putting all of the Hunger Games series down! I'm excited to hear what you think of it!

  2. Hopefully the open house went well! I can imagine how ready you are to get the ball rolling. And uh, I want to come over for dinner!

    We started doing a Sunday brunch a couple months ago and now it's one of my favorite parts of the whole week. I'd never been a huge fan of Sunday but I'm slowly starting to fall in love it.

  3. sounds like you had a good weekend! and hunger games...yeah so addicting. i read all of them in 5 days!
