Recently an Anonymous commenter said that sometimes "the most simple things in life bring the most joy". No truer statement has ever been made and I appreciate that comment. It caused me do a little thinking. Sometimes, I forget to “think”.
These are some simple things that I did recently that made me happy! A couple of weekends ago, my sister Karen, and I went to Knoxville to dog sit for our sister, Melanie, while she and her husband were visiting out of town. We spent several hours relaxing on the patio while the dogs enjoyed playing outside. We talked about simple things--girl talk--sister talk, you know some silly things but some serious stuff too! Deep stuff like: who it was that really peed the bed and blamed it on the other one when we were kids to why our sister didn’t leave us any sweets to snack on—simply because SHE is always on a diet!
We spent the entire afternoon on Saturday and most of Sunday shopping AND replenishing our blood sugar levels. I won’t even try to tell you how simple it was to order and eat those delicious, mouth watering, buttery, drowned in warm Maple syrup, Blueberry waffles at IHOP!
The both of us love to shop at Kirkland’s and always find several things that we simply can’t leave the store without. We both fell in love with these simple, but elegant, enameled and jewel encrusted crosses. I couldn’t decide on which one that I liked the best,
Wishing you a simply wonderful weekend from the beautiful Sweetwater Valley in East TN!
