[oscar and sadie]
I have been out of the picture for a few days as I had horrible, nasty exams to do! They are now done (as of 1 hour ago!!)...I am so relieved!
Anyway, over the last few days I came across this gorgeous blog...Christina's Soul Aperture. What a lovely girl...this is what i am loving about my new venture into blogworld..I am meeting all these wonderful people...it's just great...I am amazed! I only started looking at blogs in March some time and a whole new horizon has been opened up to me!!
So today I am joining Christina in her little venture to have everybody share the "Simple Things" that make their lives special and bring on smiles :)
Here are mine...
The sound of my husband's laughter (he just has one of those laughs that makes everybody else want to laugh along too!)
The little notes he leaves in funny places for me to find and which are always unexpected
Warm sunshine on my face (rare!)
My adorable and loving little pals, the woofers...Oscar and Sadie - always so energetic, happy and full of beans!
Blossoms of any kind
A meal at our local Indian restaurant with close friends
Cups of tea
Cups of coffee
My mother's home made brown bread
Trees...all trees any trees...I just love trees - see poem below :)
My dad pretending not to laugh when I am trying to make him laugh
Going for a walk by the sea with B and the woofers
Having time away from work!! (the more the merrier I say!)
Making people smile/laugh
Check out Christina's blog to see all the other lovely people who are joining in!
Have a happy day!
Here is a simple little poem that I have loved since I was a little 'un which celebrates one of my favourite things...I hope you enjoy..
by: Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)
I thinkthat I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Simple but perfect methinks!
Bushy Park (where we go for walks) a couple of nights ago..trees..nice.
