While reinventing our lifestyle, in this thing called retirement, we learned quickly that keeping the tradition we’ve had of keeping Sunday as a special day is even more important to us now. There is just something about a Sunday!
Easing Into Sunday
Faith is important to us. As parents we chose to give our kids a religious foundation to grown into; or not. I’ve always believed that as humans we can be spiritual in so many ways. There is no right or wrong, there are only choices. However, frankly all those years of early Sunday church services were rather frantic at times. Work and school all week, Saturday activities obligations, household and yard chores, and socializing meant we were all pretty beat when Sunday rolled along. Personally I have always thought organized religion might be better on a Thursday night!
Therefore, after we were empty nesters yet still working, we decided to make a concentrated effort to keep Sunday as much to ourselves as possible. With fewer commitments we have an entire day to stay in comfy clothes, read, listen to music, cook, eat and recharge. My favorite response when the Rooster asks me if I want to do anything during a Sunday I reply from wherever I am…”I’m doing it!”

Keeping Sunday Special
One last thing I have noticed about our Sunday routine is that we have our subtle scented candle earlier in the day than usual. Why wait for evening when we are going to relax all day!
