Sometimes the simplest things in life are some of the best.  Here are a few of my favourite simple things:

  • guinea pig kisses
  • watching the guinea pigs sleeping
  • the combination of chocolate and peanut butter
  • cozy blankets
  • soaps from Lush
  • bedtime
  • toasty slippers
  • moisturizer
  • the simple beauty of nature
  • tea
  • focaccia bread and balsamic vinegar
  • baguette and brie
  • the feeling of sun on my face
  • birdsong at dawn
  • the feeling of sand beneath my toes
  • the sound of waves crashing against the beach
  • the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze

What are some of your faves?

And while we’re at it, let’s toss in another list, of simple things in life that are free.

  • Reading (the local library is my go-to for books, and I love that my library has ebooks that can be checked out)
  • Writing
  • Watching nature
  • Thinking about the mysteries of the universe
  • Listening to things like raindrops falling, the wind blowing through the trees
  • People-watching
  • Walks in the sunshine
  • Daydreaming
  • Singing along to your favourite songs
  • Love (cue J.Lo song My Love Don’t Cost a Thing, but don’t cue the video because I find it annoying)

  1. A cosy fleecy blanket, while having a warm drink. This would be either a book, or a dvd.
    A walk in nature.
    My parlour palm plant, spider plant and yellow fake flowers, which makes it feel like home, since no longer having my cat Miley.
    Had Miley still been alive, than cuddles from her.

  2. A nice walk in the park in the early morning, a cool breeze, candle light, a good conversation and a really god book or tedtalk. I enjoyed reading your list lots of lovely but simple life pleasures.

  3. Listening to the birds in the morning
    The sound of water clashing in the torrent
    The scent of the forest early in the morning
    To watch the fire burn in the stove
    My dog and many more

  4. Lovely choices, a lot of which I’d go for too. A snuggly blanket and a good book, Lindt chocolate with a cuppa tea, my cat napping with a smile on his face (unless that’s gas…), pink blossom in the park, stillness & quiet, a lie down after a walk to ease the pain in my hips, new stationery! πŸ™‚

  5. I so agree that simple pleasures are important. They can add up and make a difference. I know in moments of grief, a simple pleasure can bring a much needed reprieve.

    My pet parrot is a pleasure who always wants to be with me.

  6. The slow wakening from slumber, waiting for the chirp of a sparrow or glint of sunlight through the curtain. The realizing, you made it through the dark night of your soul…
