Yesterday I drove the kiddos to school at 11:00 am. Another delay due to all the snow on our windy dirt roads. I have to say I'm starting to enjoy these delays. We hung out in our pajamas and I made pancakes and then we folded laundry. No, your eyes are not deceiving you - i brought warm out-of-the-dryer laundry into the family room and my children began rummaging through it searching for a warm article of clothing to wear. Soon they had all the laundry sorted and were folding their own clothes. An unprecedented event around here - but one I wouldn't mind seeing repeated.
On my way home from the school I went to the thrift store to drop off some donations. I usually stop by the thrift store once or twice a month but i rarely find anything. Well yesterday I hit the jackpot:
And this pyrex bowl with lid.
And six embroidered handkerchiefs/napkins. They are 18 inch squares so we'll use them for napkins.
Plus this tablecloth.
Today I was so excited I set the table with all my new finds - at noon - even though my kiddos don't get home until 3 pm. On Tuesdays we only have time for a quick snack before we head out to taekwondo and today leftover soup and cornbread were on the menu.
Proving, yet again, that happiness is in the little things...
