I decided to join Felicity's "Simple Pleasures Challenge". Of course after I did I realized that ideally I should post everyday, in the spirit of the challenge. However, I know I won't post everyday, but I am still going to enjoy a simple pleasure everyday - you'll just have to take my word for it. But don't worry, I'm very good to myself in case in you haven't noticed :)
Just to catch up, a few simple pleasures I have enjoyed over the last few days:
Finding a few pretties on my Tuesday thrifting adventure.
Watching a period drama chick-flick mini series with no male influence around to scoff or feign interest. I stayed up late to watch the final two episodes and went to bed with a dreamy smile on my face. I just love a good romance. *Sigh* Then I got the book from the library to get the whole story....
Catching up on some reading. I really love the UK Country Living magazine. The photographs are fantastic.
I was a little irked with a story in the May issue though, when a woman (English, moved to Canada 10 years ago with husband ) whose apartment they were showcasing claimed that "No one in Canada would put plates on the wall - it's a very CL (Country Living) idea!" Who knew we were so clueless when it comes to stuff like that?
And finally, baking an old-fashioned dessert in an old-fashioned apron. This bread pudding is made with dried apricots and is very good. Although, I think this is the first bread pudding I have ever eaten so I don't have any comparison to make. It tasted good though, and the kids don't like it so it's up to me to eat it :)
