Simple Joy Sunday

Finding the simple joys each week...

Athena's Armoury was included in a fantastic medieval Etsy Treasury.

This week's Herb Society meeting was bittersweet: it was a great meeting where we talked about tea making, but it's the last time we meet until the fall. I'll tell you more about the meeting in a separate post later this week.

Playing poolside. Enjoying the sun.

I spent a really great few hours yesterday among friends at a soap making workshop. I think figured out what I did wrong when I tried a few months ago, so I really want to try doing it again. I hung out with a few friends from the Herb Society and met a new one, too. The woman running the workshop even gave us a jar of mulberry jam that she made fresh from the fruit on her tree. When I left the meeting, I saw a produce stand by the side of the road so of course I had to stop. I picked up some amazingly fresh nectarines, lemons, strawberries, and watermelon.

In other news, there are so many expensive things that I want/need to do! I am in serious need of upgrading my coil cutting system, I would absolutely love to apprentice with Rosemary Gladstar (it's her herbal correspondence course that I'm taking), and I kind of need to get a new cell phone. Just curious: where does the $ come from? =(

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

Hey Pink Warriors! Come get some armor. All proceeds to benefit my fundraising for The 3 Day!

Sounds like a wonderful week. I am thankful for sunshine, hubby and doggies, in any order.

I would love to make my own soap but I don't have enough time to add another hobby! ;)

We saw two bunnies when we went for a walk around our neighborhood last night. :)

Lady & Fat: Those are some great joys!

Heather: I know what you mean. I have so much that I want to do, but that silly 40 hour a week job always seems to be getting in the way.
