Treating myself


This week has been quite stressful.  Work has been busy and other stuff  made my life a little more challenging than normal.   Last night on my way home, I decided to stop off at my favorite pizza place, pick up a small cheese pizza covered with red pepper flakes and then I headed home to my deck with a good book and a beer.  It was delightful.  And it was what the doctor ordered.

    I had an extremely stressful week too. You got a great doctor. Mine gave a similar advice. Is that a vanilla flavoured beer?

  2. TBM says:

    The vanilla flavor is just enough and it was very good. I really like dark beers. Didn’t you have a lot of meetings this week? Sometimes it is wise to listen to your doctor 🙂

  3. Sounds like a perfect evening – good food, good read, good beer. Glad you enjoyed!

      It was such a perfect night I had a repeat performance last night with leftover pizza, same book, but a new beer. Sometimes I get so busy I forget how good it feels to relax.

    Sounds like you need a trip…to nowhere…in particular. Just you, a good book, under the stars, with a few wild animals for company. 🙂

  6. Sound advice! I think I”ll take it today! 🙂
