The man is rich whose pleasures are the cheapest. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Remember when the smallest things would make our day as a child? Like getting a sticker on homework. Okay, sure I’m old enough when most of my school work was done on paper, and we had scratch-n-sniff stickers. Maybe it was chasing lightening bugs in the summer. Or your favorite food at dinner. As adults, our tastes change and evolve, but we often forget those simple pleasures. Like when I opened my lunch at school to see a post-it note from my mom wishing me luck on my afternoon test. These surprise post-it note messages are things I still do today for the British Hubby, friends and co-workers. Do you have a favorite small pleasure? Pop it in the comments section.
This Friday I’m celebrating life with the amazing picnic the British Hubby and I had this week. We had a great view above with masks and social distancing of course.
We had fantastic company. How can you go wrong when ducks are hanging out keeping their social distance?
It even included tea, knitting and Scottie dogs!
If that isn’t enough, I leave you with Gracie’s simple pleasure of sitting in a box. Hope everyone’s weekend is off to a great start. Take some time to enjoy the small pleasures in life.
