Slothy Sunday









Ever had a sloth Sunday? We have actually got into the habit of our Sunday being ,..wake up slowly and roll out of bed when you are well and ready day. Andrew brings me coffee in bed as he is the only one who knows how to make gooood coffee. We open our curtains to let the outside inside, and out come the books, the magz, the dogs....Then the odd child. It really is the simple things in life that make me truly happy. I think it is so important to stop awhile and smell the roses so to say. Please note how my little poodle has grown...almost nothing. I am so happy she is dainty and small. She is so very different to our Yorkshire terrier "Beanie" They do not miss out on Sloth Sunday either...

As you can see the basket is out all ready for our Winter oranges..We eat so many of them through out the Winter. Today has been the first cold day for us. Out came the hand knitted hats and scarves.. My roses are looking heavenly. They smell heavenly too. The kiddies have been baking. I have also joined in on a green smoothie challenge. Those greeny drinks are being made by the dozen and so far no little body is complaining..It really is a challenge to get my children to eat 100% healthy. It is my goal to get this right. I do believe in a balance. I am baking more rather than buying, I am on a mission to make good healthy sweet things for tasty treats. I suppose this whole venture I am on at the moment is a way of life..I do have to remember this...

A happy day to you all~

Good Luck with your goals Suzanne! I am trying to get my husband and I to eat as much home-grown & baked or locally grown food as possible.

Your dogs are CA-UTE!

I am lovin that first photo...looks like it should be in the Country Living magazine. So your puppy is a poodle...I think she must have maltese in her...is she maybe a maltepoo? She looks just like my Bella Bleu whom is a maltese. She is soooooo cute! Your day reminds me of when my children were younger and our homeschooling days...cherish them, they disappear before you are ready.

Beautiful photos, as always! Your sloth Sundays sound very similar to ours, without the sleep-in bit - thanks to still having a toddler in the home. :) Love the big basket of oranges!

it would be lovely if you posted the recipes for those green drinks! and how great that the kids are loving them. sunday is our family day, and the slower we can make it the better. it IS a way of life, but i know what you mean about needing to be reminded that it is. i think that's how it goes when you are re-patterning your ways. xo

We too enjoy "Lazy Sundays." We look forward to them very much after a busy week. Love your pictures, as always. Your home always looks so cozy, warm and inviting :)

Hello my green smoothie friend! : )
Your sweet little Noodle is too cute! He looks quite comfortable in bed. Sunday is the perfect day for lazing around. That sounds just about right to me too : ) xo

I'm a sloty Sunday lover as well. Yours looks so wonderful. That poodle is too darn cute. Enjoy your oranges and your sundays. Take Care.

GOOD GREEN GIRL dear Suzanne,

I don't know of the movie you mentioned, but must find it. In the next few months I hope to share some good faerie supplies that we use here in my little garden.

As your weather cools we are picking up heat. All our citrus trees are loaded with their lovely cargo of fruit. We are spoiled with the bounty and when we travel to our cottage in Maine, well, an orange can cost almost 2.00.

We are flying to Boston for my Lands' End job and then zooming up to Maine to open our cottage. So next week I'll post from there.

I love checking in on you and yours. Sloth Sunday is a GREAT idea.

Sending good wishes to you,

I love seeing little hands helping in the kitchen. Have you been inspired to create any 3-D flowers?
