Enjoying Simple Pleasures

by Josée

We had our first dusting of snow this morning. There wasn’t enough snow to don winter gear but my son insisted on wearing his snow coat outside. He came back some time later covered in mud. As I strolled around this morning, looking for the pile of mud, I noticed that we hadn’t quite finished winterizing our home and yard. There is quite the list of jobs that need to be done.

But at this moment I’m not worrying about the list, instead I’m enjoying a few simple pleasures. Today we ventured to the library and returned with a pile of new books. I also received a much anticipated magazine in the mail. Now we’re all taking the time to read books, sip peppermint tea and snack on a homemade beet muffin (inspired by Elisa, recipe coming soon).

In the background there’s some music playing. It’s a playlist that my brother put together. Good indie tunes, check it out.
