Thankful for Simplicity

On some days like today it’s the simplicity that counts.  It’s having enough wood on the porch within easy reach to feed the wood-burning stove in these frigid temperatures.   It’s having good reading material and being able to brew a nice cup of tea (actual leaves) found in a tea shop, Tea Gschwendner, in Raleigh that my daughter and son-in-law took us to – organic China Oolong Kwai Flower and finding cookies you forgot about to go with it.

It’s finding an online world at your fingertips: all the Slider and Outer Limits shows, and old black and white movies to watch and “The Mahabharata” to read at your own convenience.

It’s having your husband work from home and not having to worry about him driving on snow covered roads, but treading the snow covered woods appreciating the beauty of nature.   It’s preparing a special dish for him – an experiment – potato pizza.  It’s decorating the Christmas tree together.

  1. Wonderful post. I love days that this. Today it is raining here (Northern California), and I am having much the same kind of day.

    “The Mahabharata” is on my to-read list. Thanks for the reminder. It’s about time to get with it. Next year will be the year.
