Sunday; then...

Photo 1949


Growing up, Sundays were special. The family was together.  The house was clean as on Saturday the home was scrubbed from top to bottom.
We were dressed in Sunday clothes, socks and shoes.  My father used to cook lunch to give my mother a rest from cooking. We went for walks  or outings together.  We visited relatives or sometimes they visited us. I always looked forward to Sunday because it was THE special day in the week.   Titania
Sunday
The name comes from the Latin dies solis, meaning "sun's day": the name of a pagan Roman holiday. It is also called Dominica (Latin), the Day of God. The Romance languages, languages derived from the ancient Latin language (such as French, Spanish, and Italian), retain the root.

….from The Taming of the Shrew W. Shakespeare
SCENE I. Padua. A room in BAPTISTA'S house.

I will to Venice; Sunday comes apace:
We will have rings and things and fine array;
And kiss me, Kate, we will be married o'Sunday.

  2. Wow great times growing up! I wonder if anyone picks Monday as their favorite day of the week? I suppose those that take Monday off because they work all weekend. My favorite day has always been Friday. Seems people are always in good spirits that day as well!

  4. Nice picture of you and your sisters dressed alike - so cute! Friday has always been my favorite day of the week - looking forward to the weekend I guess. Sunday's nice, but there's always the dread of Monday morning. :)
