There are some things in life that just do it for me. They don't cost the earth, more times than not they are even free. Warm sunshine in winter or early spring. The perfectly cooked steak Frites. The pop of a cork and the glug glug sound of a brilliant bottle of red. A phone call form someone you love. I give you simple pleasures.
Naturally family is a very simple pleasure when done right. the fact that I look rather bizarre in this pose is forgiven for the fact I have both my children with me and they are smiling and he-man isn't pulling a face.
The dog walk - What more can I say? She loves me and I love her. We see the first signs of the seasons changing together, she snuggles & nuzzles me. we have only just started walking together again after 3 long months due to stupid leg. I think she was delighted and extra bouncy that day.
My girl friends. Not that they are a simple but we do find laughter in the simplest of things. they are there for the good and the bad times. I am blessed.
The perfect fresh black coffee. Every day. Does nothing for your teeth mind.
Cigar smoking.The aroma, the size...* in a wee trance. I don't do it any more but so easily could, I really really could.
Perfectly ripe fruit or vegetables. The first of the season. I have to have asparagus or strawberries. Peaches and cherries being a big favourite. Life can be a bowl of cherries.
And sometimes you need batteries.
