Friday is one of my favorite days of the week. Not only because it is the start of the weekend, but also because I get to reflect on all the joys for my Simple Delights of the Week post. Feel free to share yours too!
Here are my Simple Delights of the Week:
Successfully making homemade ice cream with Grandma’s recipe. I am not always the best chef or baker, but I am so proud of myself for making ice cream that tastes similar to my grandma’s. She sent me her recipe and I followed it, but normally I follow her recipes and my meals never taste quite as good as hers. Perhaps it’s her love that makes the recipes that much better. I really do love that woman! And now, I can be reminded of her every time I make her ice cream recipe. Matt loves ice cream so he will have a yummy treat for the weekend!
Starting AND finishing a book on a plane ride. Before I left for my vacation, I visited my parents for a few must-have items like charge adapters or whatever you call them that plug into the wall. My dad also gave me a few books. We both like crime-type of books with suspense and thriller rolled into one. I started a book called Kill Alex Cross and finished it the same day. I love it whenever I do that, especially on a plane. It makes the plane ride go by so much faster!
Dinner at Lee Harvey’s. This one has not happened yet, but I know it will be a simple delight of my week. It happens tonight with my older brother. I haven’t seen him since Christmas so it will be good to catch up and enjoy the atmosphere at Lee Harvey’s.
Getting back into a routine after vacations. I love everything about taking a vacation, but I also love the simple, everyday routine of life. There are so many things to enjoy about each day and moment. One of my favorite things after a vacation is just that. Getting back to my routine and finding joy in the things that I sometimes take for granted. I loved getting to spend time “chilling” with the pets, eating healthy and working out again (I am care-free on vacations and that includes with my nutrition & exercise), hitting up Target, sleeping in my own bed, etc. You get it!
