If I have time after cleaning the weekends mess I like going for a walk with the kids and maybe have a glass of cider and read a bit or I pick veggies in the garden and make a preserve or two.

I don't remember what its like to have Sundays off. I don't think I've had a Sunday off in 25 years, unless Xmas or New Year's fell on a Sunday.
All my cycling buddies do day long rides on Sundays. All I do is read their ride reports on a cycling forum the next day. Yeah, it's like a cooking thread....lol...

For 11.5 years, my Sundays were on Thursdays...same thing happened on Thursdays with the exception of church.

i've been waiting for somebody to say, "motocross", or "kegger cookout", or "going to the racetrack", or "heading for the beach (in my piece of crap airless escort)"--are none of these 20th century fun activities popular any more?

Sunday's are Ma's day here. I so look forward to all my kiddies coming here to swim, eat. water slide and eat and eat and play. This keeps me going and happy. I love these kids so and having them come spend the day is my thing. I love to cook and make them treats is my idea of a good fun filled day. Time to get going. Have a great day everyone.

Shrek and I are homebodies. I do go out and climb rocks, bike rides, nature walks, on a daily basis. I like to spend one whole day with Shrek and Sunday is the day by default.

Sunday's start out with church then home for breakfast. My kids like the usual bacon & eggs, waffles, sometimes pancakes, OJ and coffee.

The rest of the day is usually whatever comes up and of course, during the school year, homework is on Sunday's.

When I was growing up Sunday was a home/family day. In our area we had Blue Laws that required almost all business be closed so it was easy to get into the home based routine. I used to think it was boring and now I enjoy it. I do not work so I tend to stay "out of the way" on the weekends and venture out during the week. So on Sunday it is the Flea market at sun up, a real newspaper, and a late cooked breakfast followed by a big traditional dinner. Comfortable!

Sounds perfect to me! I stopped racing the rats years ago and I don't miss it at all.
