yesterday I had a wonderful outing with my oldest daughter and her 2 children. We visited several antique shops, had ice cream with the boys. Talked, laughed and enjoyed being together! Another wonderful day!

A beautiful day !

It is a beautiful sunny, 50 degrees at my house right now. I am sitting in my patio swing, drinking coffee, listening to " Moonlight Moods Orchestra" and thanking God for this beautiful day and the wonderful life he has blessed me with. Not to say that all is well with the world, but today I choose to think on only those things that are, and bask in the peace and love that comes from him. Have a wonderful day!

A Wonderful Morning !

It is 59 degrees at my house this morning, kinda damp feeling, very foggy out, not a good morning for sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair or on the patio in my swing. So I am inside listening to "easy listening" music, drinking coffee from my snowman mug and visiting friends in blog land while still wearing my new long flannel pink nightgown I asked for at Christmas, I love it , pink flowers and lace with a sweetheart neckline. I have the house to myself, very quite and peaceful!Another one of my simple pleasures!

It Is a Happy New Year !

I am loving the way the new year has started. Today I am making my homemade laundry soap

Then I will settle down in my favorite corner in front of my computer and visit some blogging friends. Do you see the tray on my coffee table, that was an after Christmas purchase I made for myself. I found it at Kohls for $6.00 when I saw it I knew it would be perfect for this spot and it is, when I look at it it just makes me smile, one of my "simple pleasures" I am looking forward to many more this new year and hope that all my blogging friends enjoy many simple pleasures as well.
