Before I share my favorite things about Saturday evenings, I wanted to make another announcement of the winner of the book giveaway for Animals and the Kids Who Love Them. The winner is Robin- and Robin, if you could email me, I’d love to mail you your book.
MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT SATURDAY EVENINGS
Weekends at home are one of my favorite things. No matter the season. I tend to be a homebody and love being home. With fall in full swing and the days getting shorter, I love snuggling in for the night… along with some of my favorite things.
Saturday nights at home are some of my greatest “Joyful Paws”(pause) moments that refresh my soul… and make me grateful for all the simple abundance of life.
We don’t have a “real” fireplace, but for fun we bought a DVD of a fireplace that we pop in our TV. It even makes crackle sounds… and if you visualize really hard you actually can feel yourself warming up! ha!
Sorry for the sideways shot, but this photo would not let me edit it. Hmph! But John and I love having Yahtzee tournaments just between the two of us on the weekends.
Before the Yahtzee tournament begins I grab some home magazines and a favorite “adult beverage.” With Frankie beside me, I snuggle into my favorite over-sized red chair and get lost in another world perusing through magazines like Cottages and Bungalows, Country Living, and Martha Stewart.
Candles lit throughout our living room and kitchen is a must for that oh-so cozy feeling!
As I peruse my magazines, sipping my adult beverage, and petting Frankie, I look up to see Kylie in her favorite spot in front of the front door.
Once the yahtzee game begins Kylie and Frankie drift off to sleep to the sound of the fireplace crackling, dice cup hitting the kitchen table, music playing in the background, and laughter between John and I. Kylie also always finds a toy to snuggle in with… her newest is a pink piggy!
