Simple pleasures sprinkled throughout my weekend

I thought it would be fun to compile a list of simple pleasures I experienced over the weekend. These are little things that don’t really cost a thing or much, but they are things I found truly satisfying this weekend.
  1. Kicking off the weekend headache free.
  2. Writing in my journal or in this case, starting a new journal I just received in the mail.
  3. An extra 5 minutes in the shower with the hot water running over my back.
  4. Grabbing my camera and heading out for a few shots.
  5. A hot cup of Earl Grey tea.
  6. Curling up on the sofa with hubby, watching a movie.
  7. Sleeping in late on Sunday morning.
  8. Sunday shopping at the market with my oldest daughter.
  9. Watching my youngest daughters cat, JiJi. He thinks he is human.
  10. A delicious Sunday dinner with the family.
Some of my favourite photos from this weekend

Sadly I did not get my camera out yet this weekend.
Have a damn cold.

I am thrilled that you are headache-free and those shots are amazing.

1. watching my grandson, little bear, giggle with delight as he rode on "Thomas the Tank"
2. Watching yummy's face as she, a lover of animals, made friends with a 7 week old camel, fed it and brushed its hair. (it was so soft)
3. Tucking, honey, yummy and sweetings into bed and telling them they could have a sleepover if they were asleep before mom came. Of course I knew they would never do it!
4. Watching daughter #4 sigh with relief when her first year of teaching ended--on a good note.
5. Having an evening home--alone, with just my husband. How rare is that?

1 - sleeping as much as I want, including two naps on Saturday!

2 - buying plants - got the back porch planted yesterday, doing the front porch today.

3 - Three-day weekend! (It's Memorial Day here in the States.)

Your weekend sounds nice too!
