Simple Pleasures

April 9, 2016


simple pleasures

that so easily come

digging in the earth

the feeling of dirt

on my hands…

I do not take it lightly

what my body can do

for with aging, my bones

feel  not, exactly new…

but as long as I see  beauty

in the simplicity of my day

it will keep my outlook healthy

to handle what comes my way..

    Beautiful flowers, and I love your verse!

    Just lovely. And of course, even as age slows us down a bit, the blessing in that is — that we slow down a bit, and better see what’s around us!

    …as exquisite as my favourite forget me knots that you have in your picture. Lovely words and my body echoes yours…beginning to feel aches and pains as I garden now! BUT I am loving the feel of soil on my hands again and the smell of the earth and a reconnection after the long dark Winter! Yes…Amen…the simplicity of my Day. Love your words. Just about to go out and garden, prune and tidy for a client. 🙂 Take care 🙂

    Roberta, I must not look daily at my reader and have missed your blog. (?!) Anyway, I really liked that you describe how special gardening is. I liked the blue flowers with a truly simple but clever pot in the ground! 🙂

    Mother Hen! This is absolutely beautiful.
    It’s T-Fox!! I have recently read my entire blog of my PCT adventure, and I just had to say that you had such a calming, motherly, loving impact on my hike. While I met so may people on the trail in person, I also value the connections I made online. I’m not sure how I missed your blog, but this is the first time I have checked out what it is that YOU blog about! Wow…you are too sweet. Let’s stay in touch. Hugs from T-Fox! xxx
