cultivating the simple pleasures of faith, family and home
I usually retire to the back porch with a cup of hot tea. Nothing fancy just black tea with a little sugar. Sometimes I will look through a magazine or read a book other times I just relax and enjoy the quite and night sounds. Then I go to bed early. Last night was sound asleep by 8:30!
Similar to you-- a good book and a warm drink help me wind down. (Or, sometimes a favorite movie-- Emma or Sense and Sensibility, anyone?) Soft, comfy clothes and and a throw over my knees. AH!
Bubble bath......with lots and lots and lots of bubbles:o)

Hi Monica...love that picture. We love chai at our house, too. Have you tried this recipe for making it yourself? http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Chai-Tea-Mix/Detail.aspxWe mix it up in large batches. The cardamom, while a little harder to find, really *makes* it. Thanks for all this thankfulness....it's great.
Yogi Ginger Tea in my grandmother's china teacup while cleaning up the kitchen. Then a cozy blanket on the couch. Satisfying slosh and hum of the dishwashwer in the background. Fire in the fireplace. The book of Isaiah (lately) with my journal nearby for jotting down notes and verses. Folding a basket of fresh-out-of-the-dryer fluffy white bathroom towels. A hot bath. Candles. A book on nutrition. Snuggling with hubby under the covers talking about everything under the sun. I'm thankful for all the above!!
That sounds sooo nice! i love your label on this post too...simple pleasures. I LOVE that! :)
I like to combine as many cozy things as I can to relax. :) A nice, hot bath with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa or something.
I enjoy getting on my nightgown, going to bed with a hot cup of coco, or tea, and a good book and just reading until I drift off to sleep!Ruth, PA
I love a nice long soak in the tub with a good book and a cup of hot tea.
