Simple Joy Sunday

Finding the simple joys each week...

A happy little surprise came this week when I found my Chain Maille Mantle included in a treasury made by merigreenleaf at Elbit Enterprises.

I did some more from scratch cooking this week: four cheese macaroni and cheese with chicken and broccoli. Didn't come out half bad, actually. Another night I made a honeyed ham, some steamed veggies, and garlic mashed potatoes. Between both of those meals and the the beef stew I made last weekend (some in the fridge & some in the freezer) we've got leftovers for days. Leftovers makes me happy.

My big box of herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs arrived on Thursday!! Everything is so fresh! I can't wait to start playing with all of it.

I had two people that I haven't seen in a while notice that I lost weight PLUS I got a sweet, unexpected compliment from a couple of the guys at work. Makes a girl feel good.

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