news to me.



my doormat without a sunday paper on it.

my very kind paper man

told me to just text him if i was ever missing a paper

 he would drive over to deliver it

i love the sunday paper and especially the crossword

love throwing open my door on a sunday morning

the paper patiently waiting for me on my door mat

love opening it

with a fresh cup of steaming coffee

and diving in

but alas

the day came

when it wasn’t there

 i sent a gentle text to my paper man

saying there was no sunday paper waiting for me today

 he very quickly responded to say –

that is because today is saturday.

ah, i thought. › wiki › Sunday

Sunday is the day of the week between Saturday and Monday.

Sunday is a day of rest in most Western countries, and a part of the weekend.

  1. Haha – I love the way you talk about looking forward to the paper. We stopped our newspaper delivery about 10 years ago and it was a huge adjustment. I always loved looking through it in the mornings while drinking my tea. Now I read the papers online through a library subscription – not exactly the same feel. Your post brought me back! Here’s to the Sunday crossword!

  2. Welcome to my world.. I bought my husband an anniversary card days before the event. You think I could find it that morning? NOPE. Turned the house upside down I was so mad..found the anniversary card I lost the previous year so he got that one instead.

  3. After being retired for years, one day is just like another (well, except for weekend sports on TV). Many’s the morning I wake up not knowing (or caring) what day it is. Sounds like you’ve reached that serene time of life (or maybe just practicing in anticipation for when it comes).

  4. :-)) Beth, you cracked me up this morning. Yes, I love my sunday paper too. When my babies were little, sunday morning with cup of coffee and newspaper and quite house were my favorite way of spending the weekend. Now, my boys wake up before me and keep a cup of coffee ready for me by the time I get ready. I am enjoying this way too 🙂
