simple enjoyment {white wednesday}

good morning!  i am linking up again this week with faded*charm for white wednesday.
WELCOME if you are new to my blog, i hope you will add yourself as a follower and come back often!

i am a stay at home mom to two fantastic, fun and funny boys.  M is in school all day, and C is home with me, with the exceptioin of two mornings a week that he's at preschool.
instead of just throwing down the same lunch, on the same counter everyday....
i try to switch things up from time to time (if you know me...this is no surprise to you!)

we do have the traditional quilt on the ground picnic...often.  but sometimes we have lunch at a (as C calls it..) fancy table.  we talk about gross boy stuff,  i answer lots of 'why' questions and we also talk about manners.  because is it not my job to make sure these boys are upstanding citizens?!

for this table we used my large platters for our plates and talked about them being big huge plates for giants.

we also use just regular old clothespins to hold our table cloth down on a windy day.  this is an easy, and enjoyable job for C.

and then probably my favorite simple thing to do after lunch is to crawl up into our fort to read a few books.

we could spend all afternoon reading and chatting. 

so tell me girls . . . what simple enjoyments do you put into your day?
