When email first became popular I was one of many who received regular messages imploring us to live each day as if it were our last. My reaction then as now is Yikes! Arising each morning with the realization that today could be my last would fill me with dread. Whenever possible, Bob and I prefer to enjoy the gift of each new day with small pleasures. If listening to music is a pleasure to you please click below.
On a recent sunny cold day we enjoyed the crackle, warmth and beauty of a fire. At some point we always go outside to enjoy the smell of woodsmoke wafting through the air. In the afternoon on sunny days the dining room is flooded with light and it is the perfect place to sit with a hot cup of tea and WRR playing on the radio. The aloe vera plant is the only plant in our garden that truly loved the heat this past summer. It appears to be quite content wintering in front of the fireplace in the dining room. It serves as a lovely reminder of the adaptability of nature. From the beginning of our relationship Bob and I have read to each other and that ritual continues to be a delightful experience. Gracie, of course, has to be part of the action.
Hope you have a day filled with small pleasures.
