A satisfying Saturday

It was one of those bone chilling days that you just want to do nothing.  I knew I had a few errands to do so I got up and hit the stores and then delivered Aunties groceries to her and had a quick visit.  Then the rest of the day was mine.  All mine! 

I ate my first meal in my new dining room - blueberry french toast

It was a real treat to eat like a civilized human instead of on my lap in front of the television. And it was nice to cook something again since I have reclaimed my kitchen from the renovation  clutter.  I also unpacked some of my christmas loot and put it away.  Santa brought me a cozy "therapeutic health" sheet set so I put those in the bed and it will be so nice and warm tonight.  

The afternoon was perfect.  Mama Mia was on TV, I made tea, opened a box of chocolates and cuddled under a blanket.  Perfect

Even Millie found a comfy way to spend the afternoon.  What a dog!!  

Snow and freezing rain is coming tomorrow so I'll need to think of some comfort foods to cook.  I'd rather think of cooking instead of shovelling :). My vacation is almost at an end. I didn't get all the things done I should have and I got distracted by a last minute decision to tear apart a room but I was tired - physically and emotionally.  This time has made me feel recharged.  I needed to just be.....

A friend of mine posted this on facebook today and I'm stealing it.  I think it sums up how I'm feeling about 2015 


  1. Happy to hear you recharged your inner battery. We all need that.
    Hugs :)

  2. It sounds like a good day for you, Kim! I'd love blueberry french toast, and those chocolates while watching Mama Mia would be perfection! xo Nellie

  3. Nice that you and Millie are warm and cozy at home! Enjoy!

  4. That is a great saying. I like that. I am so glad you are all snug in your house and so is Millie. It sounds like a very nice day. I hope it isn't to much freezing rain.

  5. Sure loved your afternoon snack!

  6. A wonderful way to spend the day I was at a 4 year old's birthday party which was fun but tiring. We are getting your weather now.

  7. Love the FB post! You go girl!

    Glad you had a cozy day with Millie!

  8. Love a cozy day, french toast looks yummy but so does the chocolate. :) Blessings Francine.

  9. I need a bit of that sunflower power! Glad you found yours...and that box of chocolate.

  10. You and Millie look as snug as a bug in a rug, lol. Oh Chocolate, yummy...
    It looks great what you did so far. I know it was a lot of work but in the end you did it yourself and it's your home.
    A great saying to live by.

  11. Kim I am going to try again today.. I can't sign in to some of google blogs. Your is one of them. Frustrated!

  12. Mmmmmm chocolate :) Please send some of your snow to me, okay?
    Glad you two are warm and cozy.

    Take care, Janet W
