If ever you needed a legitimate excuse to be a lazy couch potato or bed zombie, Sundays are it. On Sundays all electronics go on “Do Not Disturb” and if they don’t know by now, they’ll learn. Don’t call my phone, don’t text my phone unless it is an emergency, not work related or if it’ll make me laugh myself to tears (those disturbances are welcomed). Sundays are a blessings. They’re our little treat from God that says I know you had a long week, a stressful week and maybe even a depressing week, so here’s Saturday to have some fun. Get it all out on Saturday. It’s his way of saying, now rest my child…here’s Sunday.
Lazy Sundays consist of:
A Really Good *Playlist
*if you don’t have a Spotify account, you won’t be able to access the playlist. GOOD NEWS, Spotify is free and the playlist is “Genre Bender.”
A Good Piece of Literature
I recently started reading this anthology of goodness. I love it so much!
Back of Book Summary: What could make a smart woman ignore a doctor’s orders? What could get a hardworking employee fired from her job? What could get a black woman in hot water with her white boyfriend? In a word…hair. When does a few ounces feel like a few tons? When a doctor advises a black woman to start an exercise program and she wonders how she can do it without breaking a sweat? When an employer fires her for wearing a cultural hairstyle that’s “unprofessional,” and she has to go to court to plead for her job. When she’s with her man, and the moment she’s supposed to let loose she stops to secure her head scarf so he doesn’t disturb the ‘do. Tenderheaded? Yes, definitely. All black women are, in one way or another. TENDERHEADED boldly throws open the closet where black women’s skeletons have been threatening to burst down the door. With works by Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, bell hooks, Henry Louis Gates Jr., and other writers of passion, persuasion, and humor, this collection is as rich and diverse as the children of the African diaspora.

A Couple of Movies
Two women, one (Cameron Diaz) from America and one (Kate Winslet) from Britain, swap homes at Christmastime after bad breakups with their boyfriends. Each woman finds romance with a local man (Jude Law, Jack Black) but realizes that the imminent return home may end the relationship.
A Cuddle Buddy
Those some lazy Sunday staples when I go off the grid which is becoming more often nowadays. So tell me, what have you done today?
