Thursday Thirteen # 2: Simple Pleasures


There's endless pleasure in the littlest things. Think starry skies and "What a Wonderful World" and you get the tingles that come with life's simple joys.

Here are my 13 "pleasure" points:

1. Boat rides
2. Take-offs and landings
3. Full moons by the beach
4. Flowers in bloom
5. The scent of bonfire
6. December mornings
7. May showers
8. The sweet smell of freshly mown grass
9. A good read (my book-of-the-moment: Barbara Kingsolver’s Pigs in Heaven)

10. The gentle swish of waves upon the shore
11. Misty sunrises
12. Fields of green
13. Freshly ironed sheets

great list of small things that give joy. Take offs and landings make me tingle for all the wrong reasons and mown grass makes me sneeze, but the rest I could surely live with.

Great list and I agree:)

Great list! Except your number 2 actually scare the bejeebus out of me...I love to fly, but the take-offs and landings? Not so much!

Happy TT!!

It is always the small things that calm all the noise in your mind. An excellent list and several would make my TT.

You iron your sheets? I'm impressed!

I love May showers, especially at night. I love cozying in bed during thunderstorms. THe best!

Happy TT!

I'm glad spyscribbler said it first...I'm impressed! I don't think I've ever ironed a sheet!

Regarding your post below, please don't beat yourself up over your daughter's formula (or baby milk, I guess). You did the best that you could with the information that you had. It's not your fault that the manufacturers were twits.
