Again, borrowing from Leslie at Abiding, here are some simple pleasures I’ve enjoyed the last few days:
*Reading new library books with snuggly little children.
*An hour all to myself to go shopping.
*Sleeping late on Saturday (8:30 is late for us!).
*Getting dressed up to go out to an evening wedding with my husband.
*Dancing with my wonderful husband at that same wedding.
*Hearing our 2 year old sing song after song in his crib when we put him in bed for the night.
*Eating leftover turkey sandwiches. (Just so you’re not wondering if we’re still eating Christmas turkey, I cooked a second one a week after Christmas!)
*The feeling of accomplishment after making 4 turkey pies from the rest of the leftover bird.
*Starting a new novel.
*Riding a carousel with all three of my kids (none of them are afraid of it anymore!).
*Eating cheesecake and watching a movie in bed with my hubby after a long day.
Here is hoping you and your family are also enjoying simple pleasures in this new year.
