This weekend was one filled with guilty pleasures and it was wonderful.
Too often my work week extends into the weekend. I end up working on either the writing or the writing business. My daughter has told me so many times to make every weekend a 'dedicated' weekend…to leave the work strictly for Monday through Friday. It rarely works that way, though. Even if I don't actually write on the weekend, I will write up blogs, or do research, or do promotion, or judge contests, or…the list goes on.
This weekend, I had the most relaxing I've had in ages. I attended an antique and book sale, I had a leisurely, hours-long lunch with a friend and we laughed a lot. I watched shows I've been meaning to catch up on. I read two books.
I'm crazy about all kinds of puzzles, so I did a bunch of word puzzles and also worked on a jigsaw puzzle.
It felt so good to kick back and take time for myself.
I ate ice cream! I rarely keep ice cream in the house because I find it so hard to resist when it's in the freezer calling my name—I just love it—but I went out yesterday afternoon and bought myself one of those small promo packs of Rolo ice cream as a treat. So bad. Not only ice cream, but also candy!
In the grocery store, I was actually able to walk past an entire display of chocolate I really like. Don't know how I had the strength to resist. Maybe because of the Rolo chocolates in the ice cream I had already picked up. LOL
One of my biggest guilty pleasures is potato chips. I really can't keep those in the house, and don't buy them.
What are your guilty pleasures? What are your taboo snacks you turn to when you think you deserve a treat? What do you turn to when you need a little boost, or just feel you deserve to kick back and do something fun?
