Saturday Smiles

On Saturdays I post a couple of things that have made me smile over the last week.
1.) My Tread-Mill
I bought a fabulous spiffy Bowflex tread-mill from a friend who is moving out of state this summer. At first I used it regularly, but over Spring break I got out of the habit because I was watching the girls and because I got really sick.
I'm back in the habit again! I'm walking every day!
I feel so much better when I'm walking/moving every day. I hate it when I get out of the habit!

2.) Red Beans & Rice
I have finally mastered this dish!
Church friends were bringing us food after my surgery in December, and I was how much I like this simple dish. I tried a couple of times to get it right, but just couldn't make it happen. I finally broke the code! Everybody likes it, even Deborah (and she's a tough one to please)!

3.) Home-made Cinnamon Streusel Muffins
Yup. I made them. They were delicious, and now they are gone.

4.) Reading Anne of Green Gables with my girls
Deborah and Abigail chose to check-out the movie from the library, and then I caught Deborah struggling to read it. She's 8 and a very precocious reader; however, Anne's love of big words was making it a challenge. I didn't want her to give up!. I wanted to share my love for Anne with them, and I'm delighted to report that Deborah LOVES it, and Abigail is enjoying it. (She has to be too still while I read to adore it, but she is having fun.)

Of course you know, but we love Red Beans & Rice too! :) Glad your family has found a new dish to enjoy.

You are so right! Not something I would have thought of as comforting, but the more we have it, the more we all find it comforting.

You are awesome! I'm delighted to have learned from you. Thank you for sharing with us.
