My Incomplete List of Small Pleasures

Hello, People!

Because so many bloggers do a thankful Thursday post, which I thoroughly enjoy reading, I thought I would do one of my own. I’m calling it ‘My Incomplete List of Small Pleasures’.

I saw this title somewhere one day and wrote it down and I really like the Lemony Snicket type feel to it. Another reason why I like the title is my small pleasures change all the time. It changes daily, hourly, even minutely. One hour I could be having a shit day and the next something small gives me a smile and makes the day better instantly. I love those instances.

It’s also true that when you start listing things that make you happy or gives you pleasure you just can’t help but appreciate them more. One also starts to feel better. I may even make this a weekly series here. What do  you think?

So for today, here is my incomplete list of small pleasures. Please feel free to steal this idea and post your own list! Just let me know so I can read it!



  • My dog Sam who makes me smile every day. He’s a character.
  • coffee, the smell, the taste, especially first thing in the morning.
  • writing, putting words together to make a story come alive.
  • friends, they make me smile all the time as they are such giving, wonderful people (you know who you are!)
  • Sunshine, makes these old bones feel good and never fails to make me feel cheery
  • clouds, they make my imagination soar
  • coke zero…..ahhhhhh
  • colors, whether they be on clothes, pencils, crayons, anything really. Bright, bold colors
  • listening to rain on a quiet afternoon
  • books…………any and all, they take me out of my world into another and I couldn’t be happier
  • computers, they make a very big world smaller
  • this blog, I have enjoyed writing on this blog ever so much,


That’s just a few things, I’m sure I could come up with more.


What are a few things that would be on your list? 


Also, a reminder that my book ‘A Case of Deceit’ will be on sale starting tomorrow for FREE! So grab a copy this weekend and please leave a review after you read it. Thank you!




I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

  1. That’s a pretty darn good list you have there, Jackie! I could share most of it. A glass of wine shared with friends or any gathering of women I attend would be on mine as well. The ability to see colors and hear conversations (I love to eaves drop) would be on there too. Sure makes one think. Great list. Books are always at the top of my list. Have a good weekend.


  2. That’s quite a list you have there. My list too changes by the day. Today I would have:
    solitude, everyone needs a day to themselves. A good book, I’m reading A Case of Deceit at the moment, I’d highly recommend this author. :-), A cup of hot tea to make me forget it’s cold out and snow is coming tonight. A surprise phone call from my granddaughter just to say she loves me and misses me. And finally a big bowl of popcorn to enjoy with that cup of tea and book.


    1. I imagine all that air travel is going to catch up to you! Wow. Exhausting! But exciting too. Glad you are back home my good friend. 🙂
