A simple pleasure in a pretty tea cup.
I think we all have those times when overwhelm threatens; when the world seems to be spinning just that little bit too fast; when one feels at odds with that world; when a problem seems so complicated; when too many thoughts impose themselves at once or the to-do list has grown so long that it's run off the end of the page. During those times in my life, I find that it's very simple pleasures that help to restore calm and put things back in perspective.
Here are some of my simplest pleasures.
(with Sir Steve dog, on the beach, through a forest..)
(preferably curled up or stretched out with a pillow under my head)
pottering in my garden
(visiting with flowers, watching the bees, planting in the soil ... )
stitching & knitting
(just concentrating on one stitch at a time)
a slowly sipped drink
(currently a frothy hot chocolate in a pretty tea cup)
listening to music
(anything that's my favourite)
(on the grass in my own backyard)
What about you? What would be the simple pleasures on your list?
