Good Monday morning and come in out of the rain. Have a cup of coffee and lets just be. There are no cookies, like at my friend Carols, but plenty of coffee. She finds simple joy in baking cookies just to make her house "smell like cookies." I was over there yesterday but didn't have my camera. Can you sense a field trip? lol Anyway back to the title of this post. Simple Joys. Most bloggers are simple people.No, I don't mean we aren't smart!!!!lol I mean we love God, home and family. Simply. Doesn't take a lot to make us happy. Every one knows Trace over at Granny Trace Scraps & Squares.
She blogs almost everyday and is such an inspiration to the blogging world. Her love of God, family and home just radiates. Any way, after my morning devotions and after I have read the paper,(on line) I go over to Trace's. I like to start my day reading her joys for the day. This morning she was talking about Simple Joys. I want to share some of mine with you.
Sitting on my porch on a cool fall day, drinking coffee or hot chocolate looking at this.
Another simple joy is having this fellow follow me from chair to chair or room to room. This is him this morning.lol
Another simple joy. Smelling apple butter cooking in the oven. Baking stack cakes for Christmas. Looking out this window and seeing the old smokehouse and barn.
A song or a picture. Simple Joys. Another of my Simple Joys is after decorating for Christmas, getting up early, turning the lights on drinking coffee and just "being."
Another Simple Joy is this old yellow bowl. You know the story.
Another Simple Joy for me is Boo. We found her in the creek, remember. She is still not a loving cat but she is loved.
Life is short, lets all strive to take time for our Simple Joys. Share with me some of yours if you like. One of my Simple Joys is your visits to my blog. Thank you. I guess I left out another one of my favorites. It is smelling the first cup of coffee in the morning. MMMMM.
I will leave you with just a few more fall pictures.
PS: If you are wondering why I didn't include pictures of my grands. They are HUGH joys, not simple.
PSS: For all of you who prayed for Dale, he has gone home. God is good. Another miracle. You can still continue to pray as he gets better. Don't you love miracles and happy endings?
PSSS: As soon as we can co ordinate our schedules and get pictures taken we are going to Amanda's. Here is a sneak from Easter.
