thirty thankful days-day 20-sunday comfies

Every day in November I am posting something I'm thankful for, and I would love to have you join me!  Link to your thankful post below, or write about it in the comments.  Let's be thankful together!

As I sit to write my thankful post today there is much to be thankful for...but honestly, what comes to mind the most right now is how much I love changing into sloppy, comfy clothes on Sunday afternoons.

Working at a church makes Sunday morning a fun, fact-paced and energy-expending time.  We go early and leave late...and although I love it all, it usually feels (at least) like an 8 hour day by the time I come home.  So after all is said and done, and after we grab lunch out (most weeks), we walk in the door mid-afternoon and I change into the comfies.

Now, our church is casual.  I often wear jeans.  I still try to look on the dressier side of jeans though, and I often wear heels.  Still, I'm mostly comfortable--I really can't complain.  However, there is something to be said about putting on the yoga pants and a big soft t-shirt or sweatshirt, that says it's time to relax.  It says I'm not going anywhere the rest of the day.  It's a cue to my body that I'm off-duty.  Yeah, I might still do some laundry or pick up around the house...but the pace is slow.  It's different than the go-until-bedtime routine of the weekdays.  It's different than the errands-housework-and-soccer-game-type clothes of a Saturday.  These are cozy, and practically unpresentable.  For example, today I'm wearing grey soft yoga pants and a very large and VERY soft red and brown t-shirt that belongs to my hubby.   I'm quite a sight.  It's wonderful.

So, today, I'm thankful for cozy comfies for Sunday afternoons, and for the change of pace they represent.
