I was just reading yarnstorm's blog and she cheered me up immensely! She talks about the little pleasures of life that make life good. And she posed the question, "What are your small pleasantnesses?" Well, I think that a question like this is just what I need to get out of the "low downs" that I have been feeling lately.
So, here goes:
Some of my small pleasantnesses include the first cup of coffee in the morning (often consumed with a little white dog in my lap), an impromptu canary serenade, a really good book-that you just can't put down, beautiful fabric or yarn that calls me to make something, a good belly laugh with my husband or a friend, a cup of really nice tea and a homemade scone, good music-a song I can sing along to-right now I am listening to Glenn Miller playing When You Wish Upon a Star on Pandora Radio, the Sunday New York Times, nonpariels or jordan almonds from The End of The Trail Candy Shop, a cool evening after a rain, a baby in a handknit baby sweater.
Can you think of any small pleasantnesses? Help me by sharing a few, OK?
