List #18

Ten Things I Love About Sundays

  • Farmer’s Markets.  The Hollywood Farmer’s Market is nearby and it’s a decent size.  I like to go toward the end of the day when they are giving things away for cheaper.
  • The idea of sleeping in.  I usually don’t get to/let myself, but just knowing that it might be an option is pretty nice.
  • Coffee.  Is it just me, or does it taste better on Sundays?
  • Having Buck home.  That hasn’t happened much lately because he is in rehearsal for Peace in Our Time (opens soon!)
  • Sunday Skype.  We don’t do it anymore, but Amy and I used to Skype on Sundays.  We should pick that back up…
  • Menu Planning.  Ideally this is done prior to Sunday, but I never remember.

Oh man, I have to tell you- coming up with 10 things is taking FOR-EVER.  And this might be the most boring list I have ever made!  Sundays are not much different from any other day of my week.  I usually have to have an open house to try to rent apartments that are vacant, and that requires showering and not relaxing.  There are very few things that are consistent about Sundays for me.

  • The idea that I can “start fresh” with a new week.  I like telling myself this on Sunday nights.
  • Listening to This American Life.
  • Marathons.  Most races are held on Sundays, but I always loved The Bank of America Chicago Marathon (although in MY day it was The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon, but whatever).  This Sunday over 30,000 people will be running 26.2 miles through the beautiful city of Chicago (I hear the leaves are turning and I can only imagine how nice the scent of fall is).  The majority of those runners will be first time marathoners and I am excited for them!  It’s an empowering race and I loved both of my Chicago experiences.

Jess Vig and I early in the race- 2006. It was 40 degrees and snowing!

Amy and I after I finished the race. It's so awesome to have supporters along the route!

  • Donut Day.  When I was little, Sunday was considered “Donut Day” in my house.  My dad would go fuel up the cars for the week and on his way home he would get a dozen donuts from Dunkin Donuts.  We all had our favorites:  Mom was Boston Creme; Amy was chocolate long john; Dad was jelly (actually, he didn’t discriminate); I went for the double chocolate and a big glass of milk for dunkin.  We don’t have donut day in our house, but Buck often petitions to get it back.  Find me a vegan donut shop, honey, and you’re on!

    It will likely break 80 for the marathon this year…

    Can’t wait to see the ocean, have a Jennifer Garner sighting at the farmer’s market, and get a coffee with yous!
