Happy Friday, ladies! Don’t let this smile fool you….I am so ready for weekend comfort, and books, wraps and peace!
I have confessed this before, but I operate best when there is organization, calm waters, quiet moments….little chaos.
With our house under a remodel…that is currently not the case.
I know the end results will bring a smile, but for now….I am tired and need weekend comfort.
All I want for weekend comfort is a good book, this gorgeous fun wrap, and peace!
Nothing else required….
MY WEEKEND COMFORT BIGGEST NEED
You are looking at my bed shoved into the dining room.
Sleep has been difficult around here and I am weary.
I hope my weekend comfort will include uninterrupted sleep, for that is my biggest need.
MY WEEKEND COMFORT WRAP
As you know, I am a fan of this fun sustainable brand, and I can see so many ways I will use this wrap…including on flights.
I really see it more as a blanket because it is so big…and it is designed with fun prints on both sides.
The real reason for a blanket now…during August weekend comfort…is that my reading space is under the air conditioning vent and ceiling fan.
The flat sandals are from Target.
The necklace is from Chico’s jewelry.
Today, I am strictly dressed for comfort at home…nothing else.
Here are other great comfort clothes in stores right now….
Also, Pottery Barn’s Warehouse Sale is on with lots of comfy cozy items for your home.
Mr. B likes organic cotton towels, so I just ordered some for the new bathroom.
MY WEEKEND COMFORT READ
Recently during a book discussion here, a reader recommended The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald.
I had heard of it, but never read it…so I ordered the book and it is has been waiting for the weekend comfort time I am longing for.
Thanks for the recommendations! Love the interaction here from readers…you are so special.
MY WEEKEND COMFORT FOOD
I wanted to show you how I am stretching dollars lately….for saving on the food budget does give me weekend comfort!
I buy a whole chicken and place it in a crock pot to steep in spices overnight.
Then I use that chicken meat for several meals …including chicken soup.
This is a chicken salad that I created from one of those chickens and I really like it.
Put in a food processor:
1 cup of shredded, skinless chicken
1 tablespoon of Whole Grain mustard
1 tablespoon of fat free Greek plain yogurt
1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice.
1 teaspoon of Italian seasonings
A dash of cayenne pepper
1 stalk of celery
1/4 cup of onion
1/2 cup of cubed fresh pineapple
Then blend it to the consistency you like…yummy.
I do not plan to do much cooking for my weekend comfort time….but little meals like this are really good.
I hope you are planning just the weekend comfort you want…beginning today.
Tomorrow I will be back with WOULD YOU WEAR IT….and despite all the chaos, I will …..
