temptation this week. If you want to play, leave a comment and I'll link back to your post. Now...
As for me...
I was surrounded by temptation.
On Monday, Chad brought home a tempting bag of Poppycock. I could smell the toffee goodness from twenty feet away. He popped handfuls into his mouth, each crunch tempting me to indulge. One tiny bite went into my mouth and flavor exploded on my tongue. I gave into the temptation, but limited it to two cups instead of a whole bag. Progress.
On Tuesday, I turned the corner in the office and stumbled upon the temptation of a platter of pesto focaccia bread layered with bacon, egg, tomato and onion. My sad bowl of low fat chicken soup looked so...bland. Giving into temptation, I stretched my hand towards a half a sandwich. I pulled back and looked at my watery soup. My hand moved of it's own volition, picked up the sandwich and I and indulged in the buttery, salty goodness.
On Thursday, I bought a book. It sat on my counter, the cover shiny and new. Every time I passed it, I could almost smell the new pages. It begged me to take a peek. While I cooked dinner, it beckoned, from the corner of my eye. It tempted me to pick it up, to open it. It whispered to me to read just a page or two. I reached for it, picked it up, leaned against the counter and gave in to the temptation.
We called out for pizza.
But the book was oh-so-delicious.
How were you tempted this week? Did you give in?
