Kate has challenged us to come up with five simple pleasures this week. The little things in life that make us smile and remind us why it's good to be alive! After my bout of Labyrinthitis last week, the fact that the room is no longer violently spinning is a real plus and an unexpected pleasure...my sense of balance is no longer something taken for granted, that's for sure! But aside from this what are five simple pleasures that I make my life worth living!
I'm working towards making him get a tattoo that says the same!
pot garden we made is a real unexpected pleasure. Every pot we planted up is starting to show signs of life. Little green shoots are pushing up through the soil. We have carrots, onions, chives, spinach, salad leaves, strawberries and herbs. The children are thrilled...I am possibly more so!
My only problem though is that I am now meant to thin out my crops and I can't bring myself to euthanase my plant babies. How can I choose which ones to destroy? It's like Sophie's Choice all over again. I may have to send my dad out to do it for me next time he is here, so I don't have to witness the genocide of my onions and carrots.
No one told me gardening would be this hard!
I wrap him in his Cuddledry towel and snuggle him up. It is beyond wonderful. A simple pleasure at its best!
