After the Storm
In the wake of the storms that have poured much needed water over the North Coast, sunshine is a simple pleasure that I’m reveling in. In the wake of the Haitian earthquake, one writer/photographer is reveling in a long list of simple pleasures. AND she’s willing to pay for reading my list. (h/t Daily Vignette.) She’s offering to donate a dollar to Doctors without Borders for every blogger who posts about the “simple things in life that we appreciate.”
Sunshine. And rain (the way it turns the Humboldt hills into a garden with green lawns and waterfalls in exotic locations).
Warm house and warmer hearth ( and flames flickering on a rainy night.)
Grumpy old men (They can always be counted on to help when a something bad happens.)
Handsome young men (especially my sons)
Chocolate chip cookie dough licked from a little boy’s finger.
Forests breathing out long wisps of fog on rainy days.
Weddings and beautiful brides (Sappy, I know, but God, they are both so beautiful and hopeful).
One hawk spiraling
Deer dipping dainty hooves into long grass.
Getting paid to write!
People who make me laugh
Good neighbors (bless the one that chainsawed the tree in the photo)
Thanks for reading. Add your list of simple things you are grateful for if you like.
