Thursday Thirteen #33 - Simple Pleasures

Visual Poetry - ImageChef.com
In honor of Valentine's Day, here are some of the little things or simple pleasures that I love. Of course the big things are my husband, my family, our home, etc.
  1. After breakfast naps on the weekends.
  2. Having the kids run up to me when I come home from work.
  3. Seeing my daughter break out into a dance whenever she hears music.
  4. Having my son beat me at checkers (so smart!).
  5. Watching the kids sleep and listening to their breath.
  6. Making people laugh.
  7. Taking an awesome photograph.
  8. A fire when it is snowing outside.
  9. Warming up pajamas by the wood stove before putting them on.
  10. Eating raspberries and blackberries from the yard.
  11. Ruby red grapefruit all cut up.
  12. Thunderstorms.
  13. Swimming and floating in the ocean or on a river.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! By the way, check out this awesome list of simple pleasures if you want more.

Been doing #8 a lot with all these northerly winds and blizzards going through my city.

I so do love #1... And since I like to multi-task, I usually combine #8 and #1.

Love the list! I also enjoy fresh bread baked from the oven, snuggling under a handmade quilt, and the sound of rain on our roof.

Watching the kids sleep and listening to their breath.

Wonderful list!!! I love taking awesome photographs also. I lived in MA for a year nannying and I miss it so much, especially living near the ocean...awww!

#8 is one that I'm longing for! We've considered getting an electric fireplace for our living for just this reason!

I like #7 too. And I love #1 only I never get to nap anymore except Sunday afternoon.

Great list! We used to warm our socks on the side of the woodstove....but you have to be careful, 'cause they'll melt if it's too hot! Happy T-13!

Nice list.....Oh, and I forgot to send you a Valentines Day Card. I am really slipping I guess.

Oh well....I hope this comment post is seen as at least a weak 2nd effort....but an effort none the less!

Happy Valentines Day!

Great list, only one I'd leave out is the ruby red grapefruit.. Not a big grapefruit fan.. :)

Oh, those ARE wonderful pleasures, you're right.
