Most people have special Sunday rituals. Some have some special food or go to the temple.. or something like that.
One of the things that husband and I do is go for a walk in the countryside while Daughter is at her keyboard lessons. Her keyboard lessons are on a farm, far away from the madding crowd, and it’s just wonderful to walk there. Every Sunday, we go geared up, in layers of clothes, warm hats and walking shoes.
Today, we weren’t sure if we would be able to walk. We woke up to a frosty morning. I’m sure I wouldn’t be so excited about a frosty morning on Weekdays, but on a relaxed(relatively) Sunday, this was exciting. Also, this whole winter, so far has been rather disappointing when it came to frost and snow. Not that I’m actually complaining but I don’t mind a touch of frost when I’m not in a hurry to go anywhere.
Sometimes it could get slippery and difficult to walk, but we went prepared. It was a beautiful morning. Extremely cold, but beautifully sunny. After weeks of rain, this was an absolute treat! So what if it were freezing, just the sight of the sun is enough to warm our hearts.
There were some spots, however that the sunlight hadn’t warmed up yet, and I was happy to capture them.
Look at that stone! It looks like marble. Check out the centre!
I just love how frost defines every thing and makes them look so much more beautiful.
So that’s what we do on frosty Sunday morning. Instead of the planned brisk walk, we savoured the beauty, basked in the bright sunshine and took pictures(on the phone, alas), and broke our Sunday ritual of an hour long walk. Can’t say we regret it though.
How about you? How was your Sunday?
