I got up this morning and the weather is grey and miserable and I had nothing particularly exciting to blog about...
So I decided to be positive and think about the simple pleasures that counteract the grey *smiles*
Like the fact that cooler (or, more accurately, downright cold) weather means I can wear more of the things I have knitted ;) The fact that I can make things that keep me warm, just by using a couple of needles and some yarn still amazes me sometimes *laughs*
The pleasure of a simple but tasty dinner last night. It was only pork chops with little roasted potatoes and fine beans, but everything tasted just right and it was warming and filling and just generally satisfying ;)
Having a meeting this morning that meant I didn't have to get up as early as usual and could enjoy waking slowly and luxuriating in Egyptian cotton sheets.
Talking of sensory luxury, the sensation of knitting with really gorgeous yarn that slips through my fingers like butter... The heated seats in boyfriend's car on a really cold morning... The gingerbread oil burner I always get out at this time of year, that makes my house smell like baking.
Blogging from my phone, having finally got round to downloading the blogger app. I saw a picture online recently that had a photo of a cassette tape and a pencil, with a caption that said "your children will never know the relationship between these 2 items". It made me laugh but also made me realise just how much technology has changed in such a short space of time. I remember my dad having a car phone the size of a small suitcase and now I'm posting to my blog on the move. Pretty amazing really.
And for a shot of colour to finish brightening up my morning...
So, tell me, what are some of your simple pleasures?
