Simple Pleasures

Waking up to a cold but sunny morning.

Knowing that this was my last day of work this week.

Beautiful sunshine and 62 degrees!

Getting off work at 3 and starting my vacation early - looking forward to an evening on my own.

Looking at the snow covered mountains on my drive home. Being thankful to live in such a beautiful part of the country.

Stopping at a cute little primitive shop, visiting with the owner, and getting decorating ideas.

Visiting the library to pick up a much wanted book I've been waiting for.

Going to the grocery to pick out something for a special meal - marinated flank steak, salad, warm French bread, and chocolate for dessert.

Spending the evening reading my new book and enjoying the solitude.

Sounds like a wonderful day, Kay! Would have loved to share your meal with you, but would hate to ruin that solitude you are looking forward to. Sometimes you just need it! Cora

Jaydee - thank you so much for your prayers. It means the world to me to know that someone is praying on my behalf.

Darlene - I got The Shop On Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. It's a series set in Seattle about a knitting shop. I've read 3 so far and they've all been good.
