Simple Pleasures

I was invited to join this meme - I'm a little late, but I'm here.


Check out Dayle at A Collection of This and That and check this new meme on Simple Pleasures - it's something to think about.

What's your simple pleasure? It was created to remind us to stop, to look, to listen, to pay closer attention to the small things in life. And whenever we do, we're never disappointed. It might be the sound of a baby's laugh, the gentle splash of a summer rain against the window, or flowers in a jar on the kitchen windowsill.

Or a back scratch. Doesn't he look like he is having some simple pleasures.

simple pleasure- early morning before the rat race begins or late night after it has ended.

Traveling in a car for various periods of time for 8 hours in one day made me appreciate the little things. rolling fields and amber waves of grain for instance! Most of us take that for granted. Yet without them we would have no food! Thanks Sandie! That bear is too funny!

Love that adorable bear (but I wouldn't want to meet him in the woods) LOL!

Debbie said...

HaHa! I wasn't expecting that. What a cute picture, and yes... I would believe a back scratch, for him as well as us, is a simple pleasure!

That bear has the right idea, and I follow suit each night on my door post! My fav though, it watching the corgi pups playing around or doing something goofy. Their smiles just make the day for me!
