Simple Things

Brownies

Life turns on the simple things, I believe. They are the things that keep us going, that provide us with that little boost, that make life worth living.

In no particular order, here are some simple things that I really enjoy:

1. Chocolate. The darker, the better. And if it arrives as a brownie, I’m in heaven.

2. Being greeted by my dog at the door. He’s so nonjudgmental. He doesn’t care what’s going on. He’s just happy to see me.

3. A sunny, crisp, windless fall day. They are so gorgeous!

4. A good glass of red wine. I’m quite fond of the new-world wines, but Europe has some pretty good stuff, too!

5. Reading my favourite people on WordPress.

6. Browsing a newspaper from front to back on a Sunday morning with a pot of coffee at hand. And not an online paper, either. I haven’t been able to do this much lately as I’ve been really busy.

7. A hug from my M. He gives the best hugs!

8. A beach on an ocean.

9. Reading a great book. The kind of book that leaves you wanting more.

10. Visiting with my best friends.

There are lots of other simple things that I enjoy – these are just a few of them.

What are some of yours?

  1. You’re so right – the simple things are definitely the best – especially as we get older.
    My simple pleasures include – having the house to myself and having absolute quiet here: it doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, it’s bliss!
    My morning cup of filter coffee, very strong, gets me started for the day and a nice clean car – inside and out.

  2. Your list is good – though I’m not a lover of fresh crisp air – I like mine humid and mellow like πŸ™‚ A cold glass of ice coffee on a hot summer morning. Walking in a forest in the summer. Sitting next to an open fire (in winter) and receiving nice comments from my lovely readers πŸ™‚ xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
