Weekly Small Pleasures #41


It’s already mid March and it’s already been 41 weeks since I started this blog event. Time does go faster as an adult doesn’t it? I am enjoying March weather tremendously. I wish it would stay like this until fall because I don’t like summer weather. I know it’s an unpopular opinion. Here are my pleasures from this week:

1. We decided to sign up for the Blue Mountains Institute, a Red Cross Disaster Training 3-day event on the last day of registration (because it’s just how our lives roll, last-minute) and luckily we got the last few spots available. The event is next weekend March 20-22 in Pendleton, Oregon about 4 hours from us but we are both quite excited to get some real hands-on training to be disaster Red Cross volunteers and it’ll be a fun roadtrip in itself and we’ll be meeting lots of interesting people. The way there is along the Columbia River and should be quite scenic.

2. Speaking of the Red Cross, we had a meeting in Portland this week (about 45 minutes from us) and we only found out it was canceled once we got there so we made it a fun day in the city and went to eat at our favorite Mexican place, then headed to a nearby awesome coffee shop and just chilled, and then finished at an amazing ice cream place in Portland before heading back home.

3. Related to number 2, the ice cream shop has seasonal flavors, and this time they had my ultimate ice cream, Persian style: rosewater ice cream with saffron ribbons and pistachios. I was over the moon enjoying every single bite and days later I can’t stop thinking about it. I hope I can go back soon for more.

4. We watched How To Train Your Dragon 2 and it was so good! We don’t have kids by the way. I highly recommend it.

Important Note: Because we will be away all next weekend, I won’t be able to post my next week’s small pleasures but feel free to participate and linkback to this post or the blog event page and I will feature your post the following week.
