What do you enjoy in your daily round?
I've thought about what brings me pleasure on a daily basis.
After due consideration,
I discovered its really the simple things that bring me Joy.
Starting each morning with a mug of hot coffee...
with some quiet time to check my email, social media, and perhaps read a chapter in my current book.
A shower with fragrant soap or body wash, drying off with a pure linen towel and then applying some emollient lotion.
Washing my face and gently applying a rich serum followed by moisturizer.
Domestic routines are followed...
simple chores like making the bed
tidying up the kitchen
emptying the dishwasher
starting the laundry
these jobs are important home keeping rituals.
An organized home is less stressful for me personally
so staying on top of the mess and clutter is imperative.
Getting out for a walk every day.
Looking at the homes and gardens as I pass by
listening to the songs of the birds...
gazing across the ocean to the snow capped mountains
as I walk along the seafront.
Other things that bring Joy;
roses roses roses!!!!
tasty healthy food
afternoon tea sipped from a beautiful china cup and saucer
a cozy cashmere sweater
donating to charity
a bouquet of David Austin roses picked fresh from the garden
~ giving simple gifts ~
food...homemade soup, a frittata, or a casserole
delivering a posy of flowers
sharing a good book
a jar of jam and some fresh baked scones
soap with a handknit dishcloth
beeswax candles wrapped in a linen tea towel
"Giving" is rewarding and it is something I really enjoy...
There are so many things that bring Joy into our lives...
