Three on Thursday

While driving down here yesterday for settlement today, I tried coming up with ideas for Three on Thursday. My ideas all seemed uninspired, just plain dumb, or I didn't have a photo to go with the post.

But when I read Carole's post this morning about three luxuries, it was so good that I had to steal her idea. I was enjoying three of my luxuries at the same time!


Reading (The Garrick Year)

In bed (a comfortable hotel bed I won't have to make)

With the ac cranked way down (it's set on 64)

It's delightful to linger with these three luxuries because they don't often happen when I'm at home. We don't close on the MD house until 3 pm this afternoon, so my morning is pretty open. It's also wonderful to be reminded that these are indeed luxuries and appreciate them more. Thanks, Carole!

Now I'm going to head downstairs for some more luxuries - tea and freshly-baked scones. You can head on over here to read more Three on Thursday posts.

  11. I hope everything went smoothly! (and then you got to return to your hotel room ... freshly made up! with NO effort on your part :-) that was always my favorite part about business travel)

    1. Thanks, Maureen! Closing went fine, and then we started on the real work! We did get a lot done in a week, but it's been easy to get discouraged because there's so much more to do. I have to keep telling myself it will all happen in good time. I'm heading home (to NJ) tomorrow to deal with some of my Dad's estate stuff and get a cracked tooth dealt with. I'll be home all next week, and maybe even have time to write a post or two after a busy Monday. I'm looking forward to treating myself to a little luxury (or two). Hope you enjoy the upcoming weekend!
