This was a week filled with friends, new and old, including my first overnight guest.
I made a trip to Sharum Gardens with my sister-in-law. Pumpkins were buy one get one free. Pansies were $10/flat. Is there a happier flower? I don’t think so.
I finally made it to Rick’s Bakery on College. Omgoodness yum. Cookies = simple pleasure.
I spent the weekend in Eureka Springs—the quiet drive from Fayetteville was a simple pleasure. Stunning landscape. Hillsides covered with grasses and flowers, the names I don’t know. Old barns. Hay bales. Cows and horses. Country churches and family cemeteries. I’m still pinching myself that I actually get to live in Northwest Arkansas.
I also wandered into a great organic market in Eureka and bought a huge cup of freshly roasted coffee on a drizzly morning. A simple pleasure indeed.
