Savor 7 {Saturday} ~ 9/7

Savor 7 {Saturday} is back - and you can link up with me! You can read last week's post, if you missed it. I'm keeping it simple by just posting the 7 blessings rather than using any certain categories like I did in the past.

Let's look back at our week and "savor" {to have experience of; to taste or smell with pleasure; to delight in} together. 

7 blessings. 7 experiences, tastes, smells, delights. 7 ways to share, encourage, inspire. 1 for each day of the week. Join me? Write your own post sharing 7 blessings from your week ~ link it up anytime this weekend. If you don't have a blog, share your blessings in the comments - I'd love to hear them!

Savored this week: 

1. It was so nice that all 3 of us had Monday off together. Usually if we're all off, then we have somewhere to be. But we had no deadlines - plenty of chores to do around the house, of course. We slept in and enjoyed a late breakfast before starting our day. Were you off on Monday?

2. I am so blessed to have a handy husband! He's very good at working on cars, so he did a tune-up on my car himself. He has saved us probably thousands of dollars over the years. His auto-shop classes in high school paid off!

3. Made some Sugar-Free Lemon Blueberry Sauce and had some of it on top of Low-Carb Waffles - yum! I know that low-carb waffles don't sound yummy, but they are a family fave - they have almond meal in them and we love the flavor. Plus they are more filling. You should give them a try sometime as they make a breakfast that sticks with you on a school day.

4. Son started taking tennis classes again this past week. I do enjoy relaxing in a chair and watching him play.

5. Son has choir class this year and has to get a tux for performances. They have a uniform exchange every year, so we went - I assumed we wouldn't find anything that fit him, except maybe a shirt. We found the whole thing - shirt, pants, jacket, cummerbund <----seriously did not know that's how that word was spelled, bow tie, etc.!! Woo Hoo! Saved some $ - what a blessing!

6. I was delighted to discover this free ebook {just sign up on her e-mail list} for bloggers by Trina Holden. The book is More Than Numbers - Blogging for people, not stats. It's based on a presentation she did at the Allume social media conference last year. I was blessed to be at that conference and I sat in on Trina's session. It was my favorite session by far!! So if you're a blogger or thinking about blogging, I think you'll be blessed by this ebook.

7. Pinterest. Do I even need to say more? :) {Find me on Pinterest.} Are you on Pinterest?

What blessings did you savor this week? Post your 7 and link up anytime over the weekend. Even if you don't post {or don't have a blog}, I'd love to hear about your blessings!
