Once again Christina at Soul Aperture is hosting a Simple Things post and so many bloggers are getting on board. I am about 2 days late but I like the idea of having a specific thing to focus on so here we go...
The simple things I love the most..........................
The sound of the rain on the roof while I am trying to sleep
Reading in the afternoons
Fairy lights in trees
Mother birds feeding their babies
Pink and purple sunsets
Floating in the water, eyes closed ears covered
The scent of baby powder
Fresh white bread and banana sandwiches
Butterflies in flight
Ants scurrying (but not inside)
A spoonful of peanut butter
Laying with my daughters on their beds talking for way too long
Chai tea and honey
Remembering my dad's voice
Hearing my mum's
Knowing my husband adores me
Loving my son-in-law as if he was my son
Catching a fish
Hearing French spoken
Real Italian pizza
Holding tiny baby fingers in my hand
I am always surprised at the things that pop into my mind when I do these lists. I write notes for myself all the time. I am a list person by nature, but usually it is a list of chores, errands, reminders to ring or visit or pay or drop off. And when I actually sit long enough to contemplate the things that people are doing lists of, I am surprised at what I think of. I think Ilike lists to post.
The weekend is upon us, we are househunting at the moment so wish us luck.
