Life’s Simple Pleasures
Posted On March 7, 2009
If you’re looking for my introduction, scroll down to the next post.
I love it when we change the clocks forward an hour. The loss of one hour of sleep is so worth gaining an extra hour of light in the evening. It makes me feel like summer is already here!
I love it when the dishwasher is full enough that I don’t have to wash bottles by hand and I can just stick them in there and run it.
I love it when my cat Rosie jumps in bed with me and remembers not to step ON me but rather walks around me.
I love it when I get to dress Andrew in the morning.
I love it when the weather changes for the first day of a new season, like the first day it goes from being hot to being cold there is usually a rain storm and then you know it’s time to bring out the sweaters. It’s the same in the spring when you wake up in the morning and you don’t need to drag the blanket with you to stay warm.
I love it when Andrew lets me sleep past 7:30 on a Saturday.
I love it when the stores start selling school supplies in August.
I love it when I take a really good picture, the kind that you just want to keep looking at again and again. I especially love it when it’s the last picture I’ve taken, it’s like somehow I knew I just needed that one last shot.
I love it when my house is clean, the laundry is done and folded, and everything is where it’s supposed to be.
I love it when it’s football season.
I love the sound waves make when they hit the shore.
I love the sound of pure silence, something I haven’t heard since I went to the Grand Canyon last March and something I don’t expect to hear again until I go back.
I love Andrew’s smile.
I love going to bed knowing I accomplished something really important. It’s not happening tonight but I know it will soon. I love knowing that the best is yet to come.
