A recap of this week’s adventures in simple living…
#1) We had our first overnight guests since moving into our tiny apartment. My niece, Cassidy, and her 7-month old daughter came to stay a few days. The visit was unexpected, which meant we didn’t have time to obsess over where to put everyone. Everything went well and we had a great visit.
#2) Angie decided we should celebrate some of the “National” holidays this year, mostly those related to food. Thursday was National Homemade Soup Day so she made a big pot of chicken noodle soup. It was so good, we each had two bowls for dinner. We got up this morning to find that Cassidy had even wiped out the leftovers for a midnight snack.
#3) We planted our windowsill herb garden – cilantro, oregano, chives, and parsley – all of the herbs we use most often.
#4) I checked out a book from the library called 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles of Nashville, with the intention of taking one of the hikes each week this year. That thought quickly disappeared after we drove 30 miles to one of the locations, only to find that what was supposed to be a “scenic hike across a woodland bridge” had been turned into a bike path and model airplane field. To make up for it, we went to our favorite park the next day, Bledsoe Creek State Park.
#5) I got tired of seeing my no-longer-used mobile hotspot sitting on my desk so I listed it on eBay starting at $5. It sold today for $26.
