Pleasurable treats

Bloggie friends!!

I had a very rare day off from work yesterday (Sunday), the plan being I was going to do so many, many things like go through my ironing, start with my patio planting and oooh I don’t know, write a story or five !

Instead I went out shopping, baked fig and almond muffins, stayed in bed and read - Afrika Reich (AMAZING - could not put it down!!!!) and Cassastar (Fun, fun, fun!)! LOL!

Look at this lovely purse I treated myself with!


I hope y’all had a pleasurable weekend too!

Charlie says: I had fun sitting infront of your keyboard and screen.


Four days to the weekend!!! :-)

Ha! I had a pretty lazy day myself. Your muffins sound yummy, btw.

I did manage to get some housework done. And some 'puter time.

You should teach Charlie to type. Then, you could dictate your stories into a recorder and he could type it out for you!

Tracy said...

Hahah, perhaps Charlie typed out those stories for you?
Good for you for doing something fun and spontaneous...all the 'should' things are over rated anyway!
I think the purse is adorable :)

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

That's what days off are all about! Shopping, staying in bed and reading books. Bliss :)

Love the purse :)

Your Mom went out shopping and bought herself a (beautiful) purse, baked and read some good books and what did she get you?

Ummmmm.....see something wrong with this picture?

Shopping is good, I love to shop! And I especially love to buy new purses and shoes. This one is so cute, you deserve a treat. You can always do that other stuff later :)

Brian said...

Shopping is one of the necessities of life! Charlie, you should order something while your on the computer...maybe some treats!

Niki said...

What a gorgeous purse. I've never tried a fig before. Fig and almond sound rather yummy though :o)

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds just about perfect! I really enjoyed CassaStar! :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Muffins and reading sound so much better!!

Manzanita said...

Your new purse. Good choice. Shopping and delicious muffins too. If you lived in the US you'd have a holiday Monday too. Presidents Day. Not for me... every day is a holiday when you don't work. Ha.
Love and Peace.

What a lovely purse. We all need a little treat now and then. I am just starting to feel human after 10 days of sickness. Looking forward to a week of getting back to normal. Have a great Monday!

Travis Erwin said...

Almost muffins. I like the sound of those.

Lynda Young said...

It's nice to spoil yourself once in a while. Hey, Au is eating again! We're purring. Thanks for your purrs too.

I am glad you left all your chores and just relaxed, I love the purse.

Sounds like the perfect day :)

What a fun weekend!
You should treat yourself to those more often!

What a wonderful day you had! Fig and almond muffins? Maybe you could post the recipe, sounds yummy.

That little purse is just so sweet, great find!

Mr Puddy said...

I didn't see any cat treats, Charlie
Is it in that purse ?

Madeleine said...

Sounds like you had a great time Good for you, Hubby took me to see The King's Speech last night and a pizza afterwards which was fab :O)

Her highness, Samantha VĂ©rant said...

I stayed in bed too! Well, for most of the morning! Days off are great! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself!

The Monkeys said...

Our Mom loves your purse! She says treating yourself is always fun, but we think she should treat US more often!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Oh Charlie you look very fetching today - your furs look as though they have been freshly floofed up for your photographer.
We love Jenn's new purse - it is very pretty and hope she has lots of money to put in it. Staying in bed to read was a good choice this weekend with the weather which we feel is even worse today - it even snowed a little bit here today although it didn't settle and is just raining again now.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Clarissa Draper said...

Glad you had a relaxing day off.

Rene said...

Sounds like a nice weekend! Love the purse. We were busy here, but are hoping for a quieter weekend coming up.

Margo Berendsen said...

I'm supposed to have today off (president's day) but I have to prep for a class I teach tomorrow. I love the purse! And thanks for reminding me about Cassastar. Gotta add it to my list.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

The best days are sometimes those where we don’t do what we planned. The purse is lovely and I’m glad you enjoyed yourself.

Katnip Lounge said...

Methinks Charlie was displease with your frivolity!

Thanks for your good wishes; I'm hoping to have an uneventful surery. See you next week!

Sammy and Andy said...

Mama says you picked the best way to spend a day off!!!!!!

And we think Charlie spent the day in a great way too!!!!!!!

Love, love, love to both of you.

Talli Roland said...

Wonderful purse! So pretty!

Glad you enjoyed CassaStar. I did, too - it's a wonderful read.

Summer Ross said...

Hey there- great purse! I'm stopping by to let you know- I will be out for a few days. I hope you have a wonderful day!

fairyhedgehog said...

Nice purse! I like Accessorize.

Felted House said...

Fig and almond muffins sounds incredibly healthy - were they nice and can we have the recipe if they were? I seem to have been living off chocolate, biscuits, crumpets and sliced cheese recently - all very, very unhealthy but I'm so TIRED I'm succumbing to quick sugar-fixes, so I could do with trying some healthy things that still look like cake! we did find an unopened bottle of vodka at my mum's so I I've had vodka and orange juice, does that count as fruit?!! xxxx

Marg said...

So glad you went out an treated yourself instead of doing all those silly chores. Bet those muffins were great. Charley you sure are looking so good.

Ginger Jasper said...

Going out and spending on nice things is a lovely way to spend a weekend.. Hugs GJ x

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

It sounds like you had a very pleasurable weekend, Jenn! The very best kind where you enjoy a comfy time doing what makes you feel good!

Hope the week ahead will be a good one!

notesfromnadir said...

OK!
Too bad you're not in America as it's President's Day & no work. But that's mostly for banks & government agencies.

Glad to see you reading & that's a beautiful floral purse. Are you thinking of spring?

Hi Charlie -- you're looking contemplative! :)

L'Aussie said...

Hey Kitty, just came across to see how you're going. I'm so jealous of you lovely lazy Sunday. I like the sound of that book - is it an e-book or print? I scrolled down and it wasn't clear from your previous post either.

Ooh, fig and almond muffins - save me! What a clever kitty! And the purse is so sweet.

I hope Charlie got some writing done for you!

Denise:)

Lydia K said...

Always looking at the bright side, you are.
"Only four days until the weekend."

Ha ha!

Words A Day said...

glad you enjoyed your day off! those fig and almonds sound wonderful! As does staying in bed reading, my kind of day!
love the purse!x

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Ahhhh I see that Charlie was taking care of posting comments on all of the blogs while you were gone!! He did an excellent job I must say!
Such a pretty purse you got and we all need to treat ourselves sometimes just doing whatever it is that we feel like doing!
Glad you had a wonderful day!
xoxoxo

Theresa Milstein said...

What a cute purse! How nice you had a Sunday off. And I'd love that recipe because it sounds so unusual.

Hope your week is good until you can get to the next weekend!

Ellie said...

I'm having a lazy day today! Plenty of coffee, cakes and reading.

CassaStar is brilliant!
