Sundays are a huge part of my success throughout the week. The kind of week I will have is already determined by Sunday evening.

ground cinnamon (optional)
ground ginger (optional)
mushed up banana (optional)
vanilla extract (optional)
I don't measure anything out; I just mix the ingredients and let it sit overnight so the oatmeal absorbs the moisture. I make a big batch to last me all week. Sometimes I add a little almond or rice milk the next day to thin out the batter.
Pour it on the skillet & make it just like you would any regular pancake! Add dark chocolate chips, raisins or top with banana, Nutella, or organic maple syrup (this is how my roommate prefers it). Yummy & full of goodness for your body.
Sunday, I dub thee "Sans Make-Up Day!" now go on and glorify your radiant skin! I love a whole day sans make-up. I wake up, wash my face, spritz on some delicious toner, slather on a light moisturizer, and wont touch my face again until I wash it before bed. I love make-up, but I also love having a naked face. Plus, my skin loves it too.
Without even planning it my Sundays always include some sort of activity involving the allowance of my creative mind. I'll paint just to paint, doodle, create a document, blog, or make hand-made thank you cards. I design things, create vision boards, and stick monogram stickers or jewels all over something I own. I didn't even realize that this was a Sunday ritual of mine until I took this opportunity to reflect on my Sunday habits. Are you aware of your Sunday habits & rituals? Hmmm.... might wanna take a finer look?
I love lighting candles. I guess during the week I never have time to do this because I rarely find myself doing it on a weekday. I own some of the most heavenly scented candles on Earth. For some reason lighting candles around the apartment helps me be more productive with my housework. When it's time to settle down and work on lesson plans, Miss USA stuff, journal reflections, or blogging, candles provide sweet comfort and help soothe my mind.

So Wendy, while you have set up a Sunday that is perfectly supportive of your unique lifestyle, I too have crafted the perfect Sunday agenda for me. It's fabulous that we can read and enjoy the lives of others, but even more fabulous when we are able to see that our lives as individuals can be different & unique & still perfect (in the "non-perfect" way of course).
Here's to the joy of Sundays and the life you've chosen to lead... cheers!
