I’m finding that the older I get, the more I embrace the joy in simple things. Like the night I went to close the shutters in the bedroom at dusk and saw the most amazing sunset. Or sitting down with that first cup of coffee in the morning – what’s better than that?
I loved accompanying my daughter to Barnes and Noble where she likes to spend a couple of hours writing with a big cup of coffee. I wander the aisles, checking out the best sellers and spend ages scanning the covers of their huge selection of magazines – I brought a pile back to the table and sat and went through each of these, cover to cover. The morning just flew by and I enjoyed every minute of it. For the price of a cup of coffee, I had the pleasure of reading all my favorite magazines and some I’ve never seen before.
How about a trip to JoAnn’s Fabric, with a gift card in hand. I walked from one end of the store and back again before deciding on a beautiful piece of fabric to make new pillows for the living room to give a nice, spring feel to the room – on sale at half price! It made my day.
This winter, we’ve actually had much more rain than snow. I love these peaceful, rainy days. They’re perfect for a bit of crochet or sewing. I started a pincushion that I’ll finish this afternoon – yes, it’s drizzling again.
I hope you’re enjoying all the simple moments in your day. You can find them even in the midst of the busiest of times – all you have to do is look!
Have a beautiful week.
