It has been a long time. A long, long time since I posted a Sweet Sunday entry(besides that recent June…Things They Say… I just found. 😉 ).

Sweet Sunday has begun again, in its new form, in this new season.

And it looks like this…

Church… for some or all. Depending.

Ensemble or duet practice as needed for different children.

Pizza lunch. (These are the amazing leftovers from our family pizza night on Saturdays- this is daiya and vegan pizza. No cheese!)

Time out for me with Micah. One on one.

And then…

Todd is cooking. His fabulous, Sunday dinner feast. I add “the touch” to the mashed potatoes. I choose music and we light candles. The house is cupped in darkness, except- the brightly glowing dining room and flickering, golden candle light.


we all gather together round the table.
There is a blessing, and all our faces, ringed round.

Baked Chicken Thighs, seasoned three ways
Roasted Asparagus Spears
Shredded Romaine
Special Mashed Red Potatoes
A skillet of cubed potatoes and onions, for special, a treat
Hot Apple Cider, steaming, cupped in mugs,
perfect, autumn accompaniment

(It was a delicious meal, my love, and fun, too)

Their faces and hands- the small(ish) ones- greasy and grand. We laugh and laugh.

Sweet, Blessed, Sunday.
