1. The Screamery

I have been dreaming about this decadent ice cream since the last time I was in Arizona (July 2016).  I ate a bowl after church and bought another bowl to eat in the car.

1. The Rail Trail  

Next time you want to run in Trumbull, CT, go to Pequonnock River Valley.

2. New jars of Blind Spot Nutbutter

I think this has been a simple joy before, but I always get excited when I get to try new flavors from my favorite nut butter company. Any suggestions for what I should do with the Thai Peanut Sauce?

3. The new Pine Cove Camps Instagram series.

I admit it, I am just using this post to brag that my idea made it somewhere beyond my brain.

1.  A dollar well spent

There were several times this week that I only spent $1 on a purchase.  I bought a bag of peaches, pears, and plums at the farmers market for just a buck.  A high-end thrift store in Holland, MI was in the process of rotating merchandise, so all clothing was marked $1.  Also, the ticket to climb Castle Rock in St. Ignes only cost 1 dollar.

2. Visiting Instagram-worthy locations

I have been traveling a lot this week, and I have also been posting on Instagram more than ever before.  It seems that there is beauty everywhere.

3.  De Zwann

Windmill Island might be my favorite place in the whole world.
