Sunday times

We did Christmas stuff today. We went to COSTCO early this morning to stock up on the things we'll need between now and the end of the year.

Once home, Jilda finished up her Christmas cards. We'll send the first batch out tomorrow. After lunch, we put up some of our "exterior illumination."   We'll get started decorating inside this week.

This evening, Jilda got "a-hankerin'" for ribs. We don't eat them often, but sometimes there's nothing better. She made coleslaw and potato salad as sides. 

While she was in the kitchen, I listened to George Winston's December. It's a beautiful Christmas album with only piano music.  I sipped green tea and read the New York Times Sunday paper.  Sunday afternoons may be my favorite time of the week. 

I hope you've had a remarkable day and have an even better week.


  1. You are ahead of me.
    Lovely photo of Jilda and the initial decorating.

  2. Sounds like a great Sunday for sure ! Hope you have a good week ahead too !

  3. What a pretty picture. The tree and stuff add some, but 'at girl is pretty!
    Have a good week coming up!

  4. When you mentioned ribs, I looked over to the pink pig to make sure he was still there:) It sounds like you had a lovely weekend

  5. Dear Rick, your Sunday with Jilda sounds lovely. Peace just oozed through your words.

    I, too, so enjoy my audio cassette--that shows you how old it is--of George Winston's "December." I'll be playing it today as I bake biscotti to give as a Christmas gift. Peace during this season of expectation.

  6. Outside decorations are pretty. I know we'll be seeing an inside tree soon.

  7. You're right ... Sunday afternoons are the best! Lovin' your Christmas pig!

  8. I have been doing Christmas cards most days for the last few days

    Next time you have ribs & those 2 sides, may I please join you?

  10. Sounds like a nice calm and relaxing Sunday. Now you've got me thinking about ribs.

  11. My company left Sunday after lunch and I rested all afternoon. Today I was full of energy for taking time to have extra sleep.
    Nice photo of Jilda and her famous Christmas pig.
