Christina at Soul Aperture suggested another day of celebrating the simple things...so here are a few more "simple things" that make me happy....
: mashed banana sandwiches (with butter) and a cup of tea
: fresh flowers in my living room
: rolling over in bed on Saturday and Sunday mornings and realising I don't have to go to work, that I can laze around a bit and have a long leisurely breakfast with my husband
: rolling countryside and open spaces
: soft pale blues and pinks
: I leave for work every morning just a few minutes before my husband...I am always in a rush but he has everything ready for me...my breakfast to take with me, my keys where I can find them etc. Then he stands at the window as I leave with our two doggies in his arms so we can all wave goodbye to each other!! Aw shucks!! It makes my day :)
: heading out of Dublin on the open road with rolling countryside all around me and being able to drive (ie, not being stuck in traffic!)
: roast chicken dinners with roast potatoes and my mother's stuffing
: being able to sit outside and kick back in the summer sunshine with a chilled glass of my favourite wine (doesn't happen a lot so extra special when it does!)
: my doggies running to me and fussing over me when I have screamed after stubbing my toe or tripping or falling (which I do a lot!)
: settling down on the sofa with my latest stash of magazines - a nice cup of coffee and some biscuits close at hand
: new notebooks and stationery
: my husband...always and all the time!
