Least Complicated

(a companion piece to this)

tea on the front porch in my bathrobe
cats washing their faces in a puddle of sunlight
baths
the smell of lilacs
running along the river in the morning
train tracks
fresh-baked bread
a meal with friends
clean sheets
violets sprinkled across the front yard
belly rubs with Juno-dog
vegetable garden
taking the long-long walk while the grill's heating, with the dog and our wineglasses
naps
a white enamel-topped desk in a room with white walls
the same walls, painted yellow
lavender blossoms
my husband's sleepy smile
breathing

I also enjoyed both of your posts; I posted to my blog not too long ago about simple things that makes me smile--I keep a running list in a journal :)

sognatrice--good idea. I've tried keeping a gratitude journal from time to time, and should continue it! I find that the things I'm most grateful for are often the simplest.

Beautiful list...I think I'll make one of my own to remind me of some "simple pleasures."
