Sometimes I like a little alone time. When I've been single this had been easy enough to come by - just don't make plans one night. But when spending a lot of time with ones significant other, be it dating, living together or married the alone time is a little harder to come by but still very important. So when my book club was canceled last night I knew just what I wanted - some special time to myself.
Now don't get me wrong, there are night when I come home to only my two dogs and I grab a quick meal before doing more work, a little laundry and then head to bed but this is not the kind of alone time Im talking about. Last night I went to fresh market and picked up some of my favorite goodies (and a $25 tab, grr) came home and made a tray, put on my silk jammies, watched a chick flick and did a honey facial mask. Ahhh!
Here's the tray I made up:
Notice how I didn't use any plastic or paper products. My mother would not have approved of using crystal on such a casual occasion, but I refuse to let it go to waste. That's totally sparkling cider FYI, I'm not really an at home drinker, especially on a week night. After the movie I washed the honey, let the girls out one more time and went to bed early - which is a real luxury for me. It's been a long time since I had a night like this and it was very much needed.
