SIMPLE JOYS

I'm starting a series of posts, perhaps once a week (. . .if I can be that organized). I want show a tiny part of my world that brings me joy---those glimpses of life that one should stop to embrace, the reminders that it's the small and simple things that make life beautiful. It's those little details in the day that are often overlooked, like the sacrificial apple in the fruit basket. The one apple designated to take on all of the other apple's labels so that they could be enjoyed to the full measure of their creation.
What simple joy have you stopped to embrace?

Wow, love that!! Thanks for the idea... I'd like to pick one simple thing a day that I'm grateful for as well!

That is a great idea with the apples! Love it. Simple joy of the day is how soft my brown sweatshirt is ... love it.

The joy of the primrose that still blooms in spite of the near freezing temperatures!

My 3-year-old daughter napping in the afternoon. Even though she stopped napping long ago!

Watching the Canada Geese fly in and land on our little piece of water.

Listening to the chirping of the birds as I replenished the bird feeder with fresh sunflower seeds.

I LOVE that I have a beautiful gold leaved bowl in the middle of my table that is always full of apples. It is one of the JOYS in my home. When it's empty, it's time to go shopping.

LOL! Love the "sacrificial apple!"

I love autumn! So, right now pumpkin is bringing me a lot of joy. Pumpkin, not pumpkins! Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin lattes....
