Little things

Here is my list of little things which have made me smile this week.

Eating mixed berries from our garden each day 
Feeding our wormery
Hedgehog sleeping in overturned pots in the garden.
Roses in bloom
Hubby buying a plant, without me present
Sunshine everyday
Simple BBQ with family
A day at the beach
Strong black coffee
1st cucumber harvested
Clean cotton sheets after a shower
Dawn chorus, bird song 

I don't think any one is better than another, they are all small things, but they bring smiles to my lips and joy in my heart. Summer time is wonderful, I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather. I could add loads, a good book to read, laughter, a walk in the cooler evening. Life is good.


  1. Strong black coffee.. especially first thing, while I'm sitting in the garden... is a winner! Jx

  2. A good list of simple pleasures.

  3. I so agree with all your choices! From my point of view, you have your priorities in line!!! It's really the little things each day in life!

  4. I love this list! I LOVE SUMMER! Oh to be close to a beach. And that hedgehog! So cute. Are they friendly little creatures? And right now I'm getting ready to go get some strong black coffee, as it's almost time to leave for crochet group. We go to a place called Panera Bread. They sell a lot of pastries, the best coffee, and yummy soups, salads, and sandwiches. Have a great day!

  5. A beautiful list. Glad you can find so many things to make you smile.

  6. Ooh, your hedgehog asleep in a plant pot! That is the sweetest thing! Great list, I'd add the smell of fresh cut grass and rain after heat (not had any of the for ages!) :o).

  7. Such a beautiful list. The sunny weather has been fabulous. You can't beat a day at the beach. X

  8. I hope one day i get to see a hedgehog in a garden. That would be amazing

  9. What a lovely post, it's wonderful to take joy from the small things. That hedgehog is so cute curled up in the pot and your roses are beautiful, yellow roses are my favourites. I too love clean sheets on the bed, it's a wonderful feeling jumping out of the shower and in to clean sheets.

  10. A lovely list that shows that you are a lovely person xxx
