Simple Joy Sunday

Finding the simple joys each week...

Made myself a little herbal concoction this week: a little dream/sleep pouch. I guess most people actually make these as pillows, but I don't really sew and I thought it would be more practical to use a pouch that can be reopened to add a few drops of essential oil or refresh the herbs at a later date. Anyway, it smells amazing!

On Friday night, I sent Scott off to work and had a covert cookie making operation going on. I made some sugar cookies with frosting for Valentine's Day, but wanted to surprise him so I had to mask the smell of baking. I masked the smell of cookies with the smell of apple cake. He loves apples, so I thought it would be the perfect cover up. Turns out, I didn't need to worry about it... he came home so stuffed up that he couldn't breathe. Oh well, there was yummy apple cake anyway.

In all honesty, this week was a little brutal with work, Scott having the sniffles, and just not a lot of fun stuff going on. Hopefully there will be more joys next week, but I'm grateful for the few I had this week!

As always, check out more Simple Joy Sundays over at Cool Zebras. What were some of your joys this week?

one or two simple joys can actually feel like a lot, some weeks eh?

the apple cake was a great idea!

A simple joy for me this week was scheduling a trail ride for my daughter. She is horse crazy but has never been in the company of one,
(horses are rare in Hawaii)
and I am really happy I get to introduce her to these wonderful companions in person.

Sorry to hear you had a brutal week! Your baked goodies and herbal concoction sound wonderful, at least! :D

Julie: and actually remembering them makes a world of a difference, too. It wasn't just a shitty week, there was some good there!

Starrlight: That's wonderful! I bet your daughter was thrilled! Thanks for sharing.

Kristin: It was a little bit of joy in quite a bit of crazy.
