I am hopping busy today (what Mother isn't), but I thought I would take a moment to reflect on the joy of simple things. In my world, simple things are what make life worth living, and bring a calm to the craziness.
Here are a few of the simple things in my life that bring me joy:
Really good coupons for my favorite beverage. Just in time for the Memorial Day sales (and to replenish my "stash". I just happen to be down to my last box of Diet Coke).
Baking a batch of Chocolate Chip cookies in the quiet hour before the kids get home from school.
Have I mentioned that laundry blowing in the breeze makes me feel all giggly on the inside. Hanging laundry givea me a moment to get my thoughts in order.
I especially love aprons blowing in the breeze (well, just aprons in general). In my opinion, aprons are the universal symbol of "Domestic Fortitude"!!!
Blossoms on the strawberries. Soon there will be delicious red berries to eat!
Spring crops ready to be harvested. Here the rhubarb is ready to be made into cobbler, or jam.
Dear Bloggy Friends, what are some of your simple pleasures?
