Sunday Afternoon

Sunday Afternoon

Sunday afternoons are nice,
really, the best part of the week.
Sipping black raspberry sparkling ice,
snug on the couch, reading a book,
while the poodle soaks up some sun
on the carpet at my feet.
Chicken is roasting in the oven.
Dishes and laundry are done.
Sitting here cozy with my forever one.
Who knew life could be so sweet?

    Thank you, Cindy. I'm so glad to hear Buster is OK, and I read it as "love" without even noticing it was the wrong word. Haha! :-D

  8. It would be so nice to have a relaxing Sunday afternoon! On the farm the work goes on no matter the day. You've made it sound so special!

  9. Thank you, Linda. Finding the time is the only trouble I have. :)

    Charlotte, living on a farm is a busy day everyday, I'm sure. Not every Sunday is so relaxed here, but this week it was nice. :)

  14. Left overs Weeeee! Daisy I have been meaning to tell you, every time I see your profile picture you remind me of someone. Don't know who. You just have one of those "faces" I suppose that people can relate to. Blessings.

  20. This is beautiful, Daisy. I love the line, "Sitting here cozy with my forever one." So sweet! Your poem perfectly sums up the best parts of a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

    I'm so sorry that I didn't stop by sooner. I suspected that maybe your posts weren't showing up in my feed, so I stopped in to check and I was right! I will check my reader and add your url manually and hopefully that will clear up the problem. I hope you're having a wonderful week so far! :)

  21. Very sweet poem, C. "Black raspberry sparkling ice" -- is that a liquor drink? Not asking for myself, but for a thirsty friend.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thank you, Kathleen! :) Have a good week!

    Jenn, thank you for adding me to your feed. I hope your week is going well too. :)

    Thank you, Cary. You can tell your "thirsty friend" that it's not a liquor drink. It is flavored sparkling spring water that has vitamins, antioxidants, and green tea extract added to it. It has zero calories and comes in a bunch of flavors, but black raspberry is my favorite. :D I hope you're having a good week!

    1. Thank you, Launna. I don't have a lot of time to just sit and relax and read a book very often, so I really enjoy it when I get the chance. :)

  29. Nice -...

    and it sounds like you will be just the two of you soon - We are experiencing this a lot more now that we have moved and don't babysit grandkids on a regular basis. It's rather nice!
