Five Simple Things

Lenise tagged me for a meme.

5 Little Things That Bring You Satisfaction or Pleasure

1. My children playing together and laughing.

2. Clean rooms.

3. A cup of hot tea.

4. A hot bath.

5. Sleep.

I don't feel like tagging anyone, but feel free to do this if you wish -- and let me know in the comments.


Thank you for the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the little things. This is a meme worth snagging. (And I did.)

If you get #1-4 all at the same time, watch out you don't do #5 while in the tub!

[Would the kidlets take turns looking through the keyhole and yelling for you during your hot bath?]

They don't bother with the keyhole during baths. Usually I don't get one until after they go to sleep, but if I do indulge when they are awake, I have to leave the room unlocked because baths take longer than a trip to the bathroom. So they walk right in and start chatting.

Looking forward to some no. 1 of my own someday in the next couple years! Same for no. 5 ;) I have a hard time even picturing #2, which may have something to do with the fact that we haven't gotten any offers on our house!

1. Sinking a 30' putt for birdie.
2. Getting an unsolicited hug or pat on the belly from my daughter or son.
3. Walking on the trails with the red rock outcroppings in the Rocky Mountain foothills near my home.
4. Sipping a cup of steaming dark smokey coffee.
5. Watching geese land on a pond.
6. My wife putting her hand on my chest.
7. The dog running up and shaking his booty when I walk in the door.
8. Seeing for miles and miles with the big sky in Colorado.
9. My wife's fried chicken and lumpy mashed potatoes.
10. Hearing the wind whisper through the pine trees.
