simple pleasures


Today's simple pleasure...
an old wooden bowl, that my mom
no longer needed,
has found a new home
and given me motivation to get some
skeins of organic cotton
rolled into balls.
What was your simple pleasure
today?

  3. Very pretty! I need an old bowl like that. I love old dough bowls too but have not found one in my price range yet.

    Tonight, a rare short nap after supper on the family room couch with sunlight from the skylights shining in. A crazy hectic last week of school.

  4. Yarn in wooden bowls, one of my favorite things! My simple pleasure today was watching my five yr old collecting eggs in the hen house today.

  5. So pretty. My simple pleasure was a bowl of sweet red strawberries! The simple things indeed bring so much delight and I know I don't always stop to ask myself that question! Thanks for asking! :)
    Blessings!

  6. Beautiful yarn! And a really neat bowl. :)

    I was happy today with a simple bowl of sliced hot link in ranch beans after scrubbing on a gunky stove at the campgrounds. (Too tired? Eat leftovers!)

    A friend of ours may treat us to icees later this evening, a nice cool ending to a hot day.

  8. I just came back from a delicious bike ride with my 75 year old mother. We smelled lovely roses and honeysuckle along our route and at the end of our ride, a storm was brewing. Just as we arrived home the drops started gently coming down. It too smelled glorious.

  10. My simple pleasure today was buying 3 skeins of blue coloured "fun" yarn, 1 pair wooden 6 mm needled and 1 needle a new knitting gage, all for $3. At another store I got a nice nubbly ball of variegated blue/green wool for 10 cents. I'm using it now.

  14. Placing a glass vase full of pinecones beside a glass jar filled with seashells. Nature's gifts.

  15. I love big wooden bowls.

    My simple pleasure is the basket of apples I received from a friend. I'll be making applesauce or something in the very near future. But for now, I just love how they look. Love the basket, love the fruit, love how the fill the kitchen with their delicious sweet smell!

  20. A light green bowl I bought from an estate sale. Makes one wonder what did the homemaker use this particular bowl for. I'm using it for my homemade potato salad my family raves about.
