The Incomplete List of Small Pleasures

Hello, People!

Hope your week is going well for you. As for me, I’ve been super lazy lately. My apologies for not posting in a while or very sporadically. Seems to be my style lately. It’s been hard to put my mind to writing. Hell, it’s been hard to put my mind to anything. My friends have been so understanding. Because of that, I thought it would be a good day to post another small list of small pleasures.

 

The Incomplete

 

 

I’m grateful for the rain we are having today. We’ve had a lot of rain this summer but this morning is pleasurable because it washed away the smell of skunk that lingered throughout the night. It seems Sam and I had the dubious pleasure of a skunk’s visit under my bedroom window last night. Of course, I had my window open to enjoy the refreshing night breeze that was blowing. Wow, that was some strong scent there Mr. Skunk! Woke Sam and I both out of a dead sleep. Now it just smells like fresh rain. Ahhhhh……

I receive great pleasure from friends. They are so understanding and patient with me. They also give me some great advice. Thanks Maddie for always being there with advice on my writing and encouragement to keep going. Thanks Mer for being so patient with me while we work on this project we have going. Thanks Tiny for being so patient and understanding with me in my terrible emailing habit. Well, I guess it’s not really a habit if you don’t do it, is it? Sorry about that.

I’m grateful for small notebooks. The kind I can pick up really cheap at the dollar store. Without them, I would be lost. Seems my mind has turned into swiss cheese and without my trusty notebooks I would be totallyΒ in the dark of what appointments are coming up, what I need to pick up at the grocery store and anything else I need to keep track of. My computer desk has multitude notebooks and post-it notes on it. It also has two cups full of pens, pencils, and markers. I have two cork boards on my walls surrounding my desk to also help keep track of things. I think I have too many things going on. No wonder I’m tired all the time. Still…..I’m grateful.

I’m thankful for books. I have been doing quite a bit of reading lately. It helps me and my constantly buzzing mind. I can get lost in another world, another life somewhere. It gives my mind a much-needed rest from my own life.

Don’t get me wrong. I like my life. I work for myself. I have my own timetable. I HAVE a life. It’s not always rosy and full of sunshine. Whose is? I’m alive, relatively healthy and even though my mind is a sieve lately I am still grateful that I am alive.

Because the alternative would really suck. Unless I get to come back and haunt some people. I have a list……….

 

 

 

What are some small pleasures in your life today?

  1. I have a couple of small treasures today. One, that I’ve found the love of writing. I’ve enjoyed writing my blog for years, but now it has leaked out and become my career. I love that I found a passion that is also a vocation.

    The other is my 19 year daughter who left yesterday to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. I’m excited she has been doing all the things I never did because I didn’t have the ability, or bravery to do. It makes me extremely happy that she soaks in all the world has to offer,

  2. Notebooks! I do that too…and one day I must have swept down my little pink notebook right into the waste basket under my small desk and emptied it to our big kitchen waste bin. With all passwords, userIDs etc. etc. It took me forever to get it all back/changed…but now I have it. And a much bigger bright red notebook. And yes, you’re ‘forgiven’ my friend πŸ˜€

  3. Small pleasures are what make life worth living! I posted a blog about mine also, called “I Prefer…” Makes a big difference, being grateful for those small nothings that mean everything in our lives.
