SIMPLE PLEASURES THURSDAY. . .just a few of my simple pleasures from the past couple weeks. . .

I missed blogging about my Simple Pleasures last week, because I was waiting for what I knew would be a simple pleasure on Thursday, but then I didn't have time to get it posted. Last Thursday, I got to watch our students perform for the Area Special Olympics Art and Music Festival. We had been practicing with them for a couple months, singing "Gee Ma, I wanna go home!" It all came together so good, and they really did great! I wish you could see those precious children, but. . .can't do that.

On Friday, roses were delivered to school, from the teacher who hasn't been able to be with us, because of her fall. It wasn't necessary for her to send us roses, but it was a simple pleasure to get that show of gratitude. This picture was taken today, when the rose is 6 days old!

Last Thursday, my husband went to a Literacy Coucil fundraiser lunch. There was a silent auction, so he bought me a cheery orange, square plastic bowl filled with a bottle of olive oil, a few great spices, a healthy cookbook and 3 bright kitchen towels. I am enjoying all of those things very much. I love the addition of the bright towels to our kitchen. I should have taken a picture of it all together, but I didn't.

This is Spring Break, so of course, there are many simple pleasures every day.

Today, was a day to just stay home and rest. I got lots of hugs from my son, and

I enjoyed listening to him read to me! It is a simple pleasure to just be with family.

SIMPLE PLEASURES THURSDAY is the place and time to slow down and think about the special, simple thing that is giving you pleasure. Since I have been joining Dayle's party at A Collection of This and That on Thursdays, it has made me think every day about my "simple pleasures".

What is your simple pleasure?
Enjoy your Thursday! I will be getting up early to spend the morning getting my hair done, and then spending the afternoon sitting outside, watching our son play baseball, letting the wind blow my hair! simple pleasure!
Again, enjoy your day, taking time for simple pleasures!
