Over at Mama Kat’s weekly linkup one of the prompts she gave was to list our five recent favorite things. So in no particular order here are mine:
1. Adult coloring books: Of course I colored as a child. Adult coloring books are a whole new world compared to the the thin paged cartoon books of our childhood. I have started a nice little collection of books/coloring supplies and am finding it's a great stress reliever. Which apparently it's obvious I need. I was at the mechanic the other day (luckily an oil change this time and not another unexpected repair) when telling him of my broken toe he remarked "it's been a tough 6 months, scratch that a tough year for you guys". Pretty bad when the mechanic recognizes your life has had more downs than ups the last year.
2. Kids – This is specifically in relation to my daughter lately. Always one to keep us on our toes and be leaving us waiting for the next funny antic she has not disappointed this week. She brought home a letter from a friend at school that asked her for a sleepover soon. Well, when I went to pick her up at school the other day, her friend walked by and said “See you next weekend for a sleepover!” It was obvious the girls were badly wanting this so I messaged her friends Mom that evening to make the arrangements. When I told Karensa this she informed me that she had invited another friend but told her that the sleepover would be on Friday. Seems I am the last to find out about the plans of 7 and 8 year old girls.
