It rained last weekend, and I also happened to be kid-free. I woke up Saturday morning, heard the rain coming down, and I burrowed down under my comforter as the cat snuggled in next to me. Oh, it was just cozy. So nice.
Then I went downstairs, made a mug of good Irish tea, lit a spiced-apple candle, opened up a book and read for awhile, with the rain pattering softly in the background.
It's the simple stuff that just fills you up, doesn't it?
Here's a list of some of my favorite Small Pleasures:
- Hot tea
- Cats purring
- A good book
- Stargate Atlantis
- Food-scented candles
- Sleeping naked (call me a hedonist, but I prefer it)
- Having my hair played with
- Getting a pedicure
- Cold, starry nights
- The sound and smell of the ocean
