Simple joy

We’re not planning on going out this weekend. We will stay home until I go back to work which is on Tuesday. The weather is so cold. Before going home last night, I did my grocery shopping and between celebrating New Year and preparing for this weather, the store was busy. I made sure we have all the food that will get us through. Last year, we went to a friend’s house to celebrate New Year’s Eve. This year, we will all be home. I’ll cook something and we’ll enjoy the cake I just bought.

I woke up early this morning when my husband started getting ready for work. We let the girls sleep in while I started doing some chores. I started the laundry and clean the kitchen.

When Olivia woke up, I fed her a bowl of cereal then she helped me prepared making homemade bread. Marie woke up late and I let them watch their favorite movie, The Descendants, for gazillion times.

My simple joy is simply staying home with the girls and getting some cleaning done. Of course, I’ll do some writing too. By the end of the day, we’ll do some reading or clean our closets. I’ll also clean our fridge and see what leftover food we can still eat to avoid food waste.

Happy New Year, my friends!
