As the day comes to an end.........
I reflect on how I spent my weekend.
Relaxing! To put it simply.
Yesterday afternoon we spent the afternoon watching the Olympics and when nothing of interest was on, we watched The Lord of the Rings, and I crocheted.
The minute I saw this pattern at Bunny Mummy, I just knew it was the perfect little wall decoration for our Homeschooling Area.
Isn't it adorable?
And this morning, I started on another pillow for my collection.
We were out earlier this afternoon and made a quick stop at a new Goodwill near us. I had to grab these baskets, I couldn't leave them behind, and I knew exactly what I wanted them for.
All my knitted dishcloths are in one, fabric paper towels in the other, and my lotions in the third. The fourth one I'm actually using on my table next to my couch, it holds my crochet needle and my current crochet project.
Found two cookbooks which caught my eye. Hay Day Country Market Cookbook and Incredible Edibles.
And also picked up this adorable garden pot which now uses my basil.
I think it looks wonderful on my kitchen sill :)
Just a little peek above my stove
Dinner time came around pretty quick, so for the hungry family, I made some delicious Chicken Stroganoff which includes bacon, and you know that is a winner right?
You can find the recipe on the food blog.
Now dishes are done, kitchen is clean and I'm going to sit down with my crochet and relax in the quiet of my living room.
One of my favorite ways to spend the evening, is to sit quietly on my favorite chair, listening to my children talk amongst themselves or having a funny animated conversation with my husband.
It's a simple joy!
