Simple Pleasures Friday (Week 2)

Introduced last week, with quite a few commenters and even more readers! It's back!

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. The thing this week that has brought me pleasure is finally seeing the leaves outside my office window change colors. We have combined cold weather with two good shots of rain. The color combinations are briliant!

  2. Walking around Dupont Circle yesterday afternoon, after a big meeting that I organized. And buying some of the new beaujolais wine!

  3. Watching our daughter SIT UP playing with her toys!

  4. Getting to share a 20 min converstation with my husband who is in Iraq. It is so great to hear his voice!

  5. I am pleased that today my biggest problem was that I couldn't settle on one single thing that brought me pleasure this week because there was more than one.
