I woke up on Sunday and didn’t feel like getting up and getting dressed and going out into the world quite yet, despite making plans the night before to do just that. What I needed was pajamas and coffee and pancakes at home, so that’s what we did.
We took our pup to the vet for the first time and I was nervous. He barks at other dogs, he snaps at unfamiliar humans, there was all the potential for disaster. But, it was all fine. He didn’t bark at a single dog, he let the vet assistant carry him into the back for shots, he cooperated for the vet who thinks his behavioral problems are all protective.
Back at home, I sauteed chard for Joey’s lunch and chopped up speckled leaf lettuce for my own and marveled at being able to pick greens from your own backyard. We ate, we watched TV, we roasted sweet potatoes and felt thankful for cooler weather while we had the oven on. We watched as a storm rolled in and sheets of rain and hail poured down. Good thing we had that sprinkler system put in the day before, huh?
At 2, we decided Sunday chores that were half finished could wait a couple of hours, and took ourselves to American Cultures for a kombucha date. We looked through our calendar for July, wrapped our heads around already set plans, suggested new ones and reflected on how good the summer has felt so far. Then we parted ways so Joey could run errands and get a car wash and I could go to Base Coat.
The storm had moved out, the sun was shining and it felt like perfect evening running weather. The air felt so fresh that I hardly minded a few muddy spots and when I got back, Joey had finished lunches for the week, laundry and a new batch of iced coffee ♥ We almost always cook on Sunday nights, but pizza felt right so we headed to Pizzeria Lui and when it was unexpectedly closed, we rerouted to Cart-Driver for two seats in the courtyard, drinks, a very good chopped salad and a perfectly spicy pizza.
Afterwards, we walked our dog and finished watching V for Vendetta (it was my first time watching and I liked it a lot!) before climbing into bed to read. A very good end to a very good Sunday.
