Enjoyment of a day or two

I have been reveling in the enjoyment of an extra day off for this long weekend.  Got all my errands done on Friday so I could hunker down at home for three whole days. I did get my wool organized on Friday; not much there but every one has to start some where. Hehehe.

I had a helper...I spy cat eyes of green...



 Now just need to plan some stitching projects.

With apple scented candles lit, a fire going, mulled cider simmering on the stove and cheesy, cheery holiday movies on the Halmark channel I  nestled down on the couch to work on The Rose of Hope.


 
 

 I need to ponder how I want to mark the reverse side...

So I think I will work on my HRH while I am enjoying the holiday glee on T.V.  The calm of the day was broken up by the tribal cheers while watching the Alabama vs LSU game last night with the hubby....ROLL TIDE!

We had a light blanket of snow on the ground this morning. I could just tell by that certain glow in the morning light when I woke up that it was snowing. I jumped right out of bed and scurried to the window.
 

 
It was the perfect Sunday morning!

 The light of the day has been a silvery gray; that with the glow of candle light has set a cozy calm tone,  again.  So with the hound nosed up to me on one side and the kitty curled up warm and close I will continue to enjoy the simple pleasures of a day or two. The smell of baking cake wafting through the house as my husband prepares his infamous Kitty Litter cake for a company potluck tomorrow.  Dinner is in the crockpot.....there is more stitching to be done.

Hope everyone is enjoying the simple pleasures this long weekend. Remembering our veterans this holiday weekend; thankful to all who have served past and present.

P.S. That DARN Cat...but she sure is cute!
While home of Friday I caught someone up on the mantle...
 

 
...betting this is not the first time; she looks pretty comfortable.

The simple pleasure of being at home enjoying a day without any type of stress is my idea of a day well spent.

We're big FSU fans and are hoping to see your team for the big one in January!

Such a delightful post. It sounds like you have had a wonderful week-end. We are going to have a similar evening but will be watching"Killing Kennedy" since we are old enough to remember that horrid day!
