This Week’s Small Pleasures #49

may collage

This was a good week. In spite of hearing about my mom having to go to the hospital for several days and not being able to be with her, there were several moments to be happy about, including her recovery and being able to go back home yesterday. I had been feeling under the weather too, I think I was fighting a cat bite infection from rinsing my cat’s mouth who got into a glow stick.

But since Wednesday, I don’t know why but I started feeling really well, better than normal. I was in a good mood and had good energy. I did great progress at my workout classes and indulged quite bit in the weekend. There were also home improvements. Read more about my week’s small pleasures:

1. Post-workout smoothies.


2. Indulging on Friday with French bakery goods, good beer and food truck food.

3. Gardening! Our housemates are getting their garden ready for planting and we helped remove tons of river rock that was in the soil and plant some trees. Excited for the fresh veggies that are to come! Below that’s me with the neon gloves!

4. Stocking up my pantry with Trader Joe’s. I live about 40 miles from one.

5. Improving and customizing our apartment by making small additions like hooks for my cast iron pans that used to be on the way, installing very much needed coat racks, and installing a light fixture above our dining room. Almost a year ago we moved into this apartment which our friends/landlords/housemates built for us on the giant basement of their giant repurposed historical schoolhouse. They added walls, a kitchen, a bathroom and furnished the whole place for us to move. We are so very grateful for everything they did, but now we are starting to make it more our home by making our own additions and customizations. We’re looking to change the whole living room area. Little at a time.

    Small things in life are actually the most best! These small pleasures are better than big but temporary happiness. 🙂
