Sunday Afternoons

There is a magical time here on the farmette called, "Sunday Afternoons".  It falls just after lunchtime when we all seem to be at home.  Typically we don't make any plans as it seems that this is the only time during the week where nothing appears on our calendar.  We save this time for ourselves to cook/bake, walk on the farm, watch a movie, play with the dogs,  play ball, be together, etc... 


Sometimes Secret Agent Man takes the tractor out for a spin.  


If I go to the barn my trusty sidekick always goes with me. 


The cows always appreciate the visit. 


Sunday afternoon is a fine time to admire the Nasturtiums that are still blooming on the old plow. 


Time  n.  continuous period measured by clocks, watches, and calendars

Never enough of it together here on the farmette.

  1. I'm amazed at how much faster time seems to be traveling as I've gotten older.

  3. Enjoy your time! The photo of your jack russell looks very familiar. Don't they just love poking their noses into every nook and cranny for a hopeful chase.

  6. That is a great family tradition. There is never enough time.
    Just wanted you to know my son got his bale garden started for some winter veggies. Because of the link I sent him of yours, he did some research and wanted to try it.

  11. I miss quiet Sundays! We probably won't have many of those until mid November at the earliest, but I used to enjoy settling down with a stack of papers to grade and my fav football team playing on the tube. Enjoy for me!
