Simple Pleasure Friday - 3rd Week

It's back! Sorry to have missed last week, but I didn't touch a computer for more than 24 hours, and that might qualify as a Simple Pleasure

SPF - Simple Pleasure Friday's (I'm still not sold on this name, so feel free to give suggestions!)

I would like to hear from folks about positive things in their lives. Most blogs that I read go dormant over the weekends. I think that speaks about how we spend our time, and I don't think that it's a bad thing!

On a local radio station every Thursday they have time to share people's "Simple Pleasures." This is a time where people get to call in and be positive, and a LOT of people do. The hosts each share something that seems simple, but has been a nice thing for them.

example: The smell of a summer rain in the middle of a drought.
Seeing a kid's face the first time they try to catch snow on their tongue.

You get the picture.

So, here are the rules:
Share something special that has happened to you or you have witnessed in the last week.
Place your Simple Pleasure in the comments below!

That's it!

My goal is that this is about community, so I will share my Simple Pleasure in the comments, not as part of my post. My other goal is to give you a place to write a little bit over the weekend, and to share in the joys that other's are experiencing.

Feel free to pass this along to others!


  1. Yeah, I really would say that my simple pleasure was being computer-less last Friday. I didn't even notice that I had not used the web, which is strange considering how much time I spend online every day.

    Oh yeah, and the fact that computer-less time meant I was spending time with my larger family.

  2. My simple pleasure was having other wives during Thanksgiving that were all going through the same thing as me. Oh and the fact I only have five weeks left until Sarah wil be here!

  3. A Thanksgiving-related submission from me, too:

    Seeing my family interact with the critter, and seeing him smile and coo back at them.

  4. The boy from the Learning Center who comes in to my room on Thursdays is finally making eye contact. :) It makes me smile each time!
