I have been at the Beer Mine for two years now, and up until a couple of weeks ago, I worked every Sunday. Now, I have Sundays off.
I don’t know what it is, but I rather prefer having Sundays off as opposed to Saturdays. Sundays just feel so laid back…especially during the warm months.
I mean, what’s not to like? For instance, today…
I am going to get up no later than seven…have a couple of cups of coffee, take a shower, and be ready to go out by 8:45 or so.
I am then going to go to Schuler’s Donuts and pick up two glazed donuts for Ryno, two chocolate crème-filled for his mom, and head over to their house.
Ryno has a report due for school Monday and he has finished it, so I am going to look it over and
I’ll be there until about 10:30 at which point I will be off, as they will be headed to church. Ha, Suckers!!
I will then head to the grocery in search of brats that don’t cost an arm and a leg, and pick up some buns for said brats as well.
Upon returning home, I will turn on some music and boil the brats as I tip some cold ones. After a slow boil, I will then proceed to grill the brats with onions and peppers in a skillet and of course, tip a few more.
At 1 or so the Reds play the Cubs and I will listen to it on the radio. There’s something about the radio and baseball that strikes me as the perfect marriage of sport and media.
Schmoop and I will listen to the game, have a couple of beers and shoot the shit, while Corky sleeps curled up in the rocking chair or under the covers in the bed.
And, the windows will be open, so the vernal breezes will be carrying the fresh spring air into the digs.
Ahhhhhh, indeed…what’s not to like about a day like that?
If I’m lucky, the post game festivities will include a roll in the bed from hell with Schmoop. There’s nothing like three hours of brats, beer, and baseball followed by
To me, that’s the perfect doubleheader, and after that, who cares what the rest of the day brings?
So there you have it, my idea of a pretty damn good Sunday.
Amen, and Amen.
I hope that you too enjoy your Sunday no matter what you plan on doing.
Batter up, and of course…
