The Simple Things

I am joining in with Christina of the beautiful blog Soul Aperture to celebrate the simple things in life.

Here are a few of mine....



Mabel caressing my face with her paw.

The last bright rays of a sunset.

Hearing a favorite song come on in a store.

Getting lost in a well loved book.

Scent of lilacs and roses perfuming the air.

Sunshine kissing my skin.

My letters from Sean.

Spending time with my inner circle of friends.

Cloud watching from my nook.

My mom and I laughing together.

Chocolate.

This is a lovely list! I've never really done it, but cloud watching sounds so relaxing...

"Cloud watching from my nook."

Such a lovely list! Ahh... the shapes and movements of a simple cloud in the sky. Lovely.

Thank you for playing along.

Hello Shell, Thanks for coming and saying hello across at my blog! This was such a great idea of Christina's. So interesting what others put down. I love your cloud watching, so lovely and the one about hearing your favourite music come on in a store - that's so good when it happens! :)

I love watching clouds. It's like an ever-changing array of characters parading across the sky just for you.

I could use a sunshine kiss right about now!

It is so fun to read these lists! I will be happy all day. :)

I love that you started off with, "Mabel caressing my face with her paw." I looked around on your homepage to see if Mabel is a cat or a dog! She is so pretty. Also, I can totally relate to getting lost in a book!

I know all about a favorite song coming on in a store. You should see me every time that a James Ingram song comes on while I'm shopping.

You are such a sweetie. I love red too. I think a red pair of those boots would be fantastic.

Have a great evening, my dear.

Relyn said...

I'm with Christina. Cloud watching from my nook is a perfectly dreamy addition to the list. Plus, having a nook. That's a simple joy all its own. Isn't it?

Aretha Forrest said...

It's the simple things in life which are really the most memorable in my book. They seem to *touch* ones Soul more deeply.
I am loving your list, you.
