    A radio station in my area used to do "simple pleasures" once a week. The DJ and weather/news people would say their simple pleasure and callers could call in with theirs. It was fun and inspirational. Let's do it. Maybe one non-quilting related and one quilting related. I'll start ~

    1. smelling honeysuckle (10 - 12 times) while riding motorcycle last night

    2. looking at all the wonderful creative quilts on this quiltboard

    The smell of a baby.

    The feeling when learning a new quilting technique.

    opening the windows in the spring to hear all the "nature" noise

    sitting on the deck chatting with DH

    having DH call just to say "I love you" (the best one)

    sometimes seeing the full moon set in the west when I go to work on a winter morning (did you know it goes down and looks as big as it does when it rises!)

    The feeling when your child gives you a random hug followed by I Love You.

    Picking out the perfect fabric for a patter you fell in love with!

    Just watching our cats play together. They were all rescued at different times so it's amazing how well they get along.

    In describing myself I always say.... simple minds...simple pleasures.

    Taking my bra off and going barefoot in the house.

    The kitties running to greet me like puppy dogs when I drive in.

    An afternoon nap with a good book.

    Locating the wild raspberries on the side of the road when they are blooming in the spring and keeping an eye on them as they ripen so I can go back and pick to my heart's content.

    Seeing nearly every tree on the mountains on a clear, dry day.

    Watching the new calves cavorting and playing chase and "king-of-the-hill' in the far rolling pasture.

    A summer supper of all veggies from the garden.

    Receiving a big wedge of lemon in my restaurant tea instead of a skinny slice.

    My simple pleasures are:

    Holding my grandson and rocking him to sleep and then just holding him close
    .
    Hearing the sweet voice of my granddaughter chatter non-stop.

    A hug and kiss from my DD's.

    An "I love you" from hubby.

    When my cats sits in my arms and lays her head on my arm like a baby.

    Feeling very lucky when I look at my fabric stash.

    Being happy and wanting what I have.

    Walking through my clean and shining house today, after my first time ever house cleaner went home. I was so happy.

    A phone call from my one and only granddaughter who lives in Florida.

    The laughter of a happy child.

    The look of contentment on a baby's face as he finally closes his eyes and snuggles against my shoulder in sleep.

    turning into the drive and knowing I'm "home"

    little voices calling me Grammie

    (and many of you may not identify with this one) being able to make payroll every 2 weeks for myself and 2 staff. Times are hard in real estate and I run a small small title co. and so every time payroll comes up I say my prayers as we hold our own.

    I am very blessed with a healthy family and a nice property to play in the dirt and a pretty house and lots of fabric stash so I appreciate the simple pleasures as they are the big things!
