Last night, the two sons of my brother slept at my sister and I’s room.
For them to sleep early because when they sleep with their parents, they sleep late.
I woke up earlier than usual today given that it is a Sunday.
As soon as my sister and I woke up, we readily heated the soup from our dinner last night and cooked breakfast.
Of course, we fed our nephews first then readied ourselves to go to the mall.
My sister and I just wanted to chill out of the house.
Since there was a very exciting basketball game that will take place at the arena beside the mall we were going to, we decided to check out the prices because we wanted to watch.
When we got there, the line was soooooooooooo long and they were no seats left!
And that is left were standing tickets – we didn’t wanna stand up for 2 hours!
We then decided that we let this basketball game pass for now.
Our late lunch was from Kenny Rogers.
Of course, the discussion for my supposed transfer was not left out!
I also texted my eldest sister about what she thought about it.
Before I slept, I received a text from my brother-in-law that really made me think..
Follow your passion. It will set you free. Que sera sera
In line with what I have posted last time about Pinterest, I am going to talk about my little luxuries.
You may wonder how they are related right?
Well, I started listing down my little luxuries because of Pinterest.
A person I have been following there had a board of her very own little luxuries.
What are little luxuries you may ask?
They are basically the things that need not cost too much – or even anything – yet make you happy or delighted or anything similar for that matter.
I have listed a few that I am willing to share to you.
First is having an enough extra time for a take-your-time breakfast in the morning at home.
If you haven’t noticed from my previous posts, I love to sleep, I don’t like waking up early and yet I don’t sleep early.
I make it a point that I just have enough time in the morning to bathe and prep myself for work.
The extra time I have after I prepare is the amount of time for breakfast – no matter how short that time left may be.
If I don’t have extra time left, I eat at work.
We all know that being able to eat breakfast at home is a completely different experience from having breakfast someplace else.
Need I say more? 🙂
Another little luxury of mine is being served a meal in bed.
To be specific, I like being “surprised”.
It doesn’t matter if it is breakfast, lunch, dinner or even just snacks, for me, it implies that that certain person thought of you.
And I don’t know..
I just like the feeling 🙂
Having a “me” time is also one of my little luxuries.
Some people might not understand this but being alone in a public place somehow brings me peace.
It is a must that the public place should not be crowded because that ruins my idea of “peace”.
I usually enjoy being in a mall on a weekday because there are less people during those days.
My “me” day usually starts by walking leisurely around the mall.
If I find something I like, I buy it.
If I’m not on a splurge mode, I just window shop.
Having a meal at a restaurant after the walking usually comes next.
I stay there for hours.
I think about things there.
I write, read, research.
I can do everything there.
After eating and staying there, I walk again around and head home after.
My “me” days are just simple yet I realize and gain so much from the time I spend by myself.
Quite frankly, I actually have a lot of little luxuries in mind.
Though I have yet to complete my board of little luxuries, you can see some more of those when you click the link below:
