The Ordinary Arts: The Art of Self Care...




Simple, everyday pleasures are where I find the most joy. Things can get awfully busy very quickly for our family, but I've found that beauty is almost everywhere I look and I can replenish my spirit in little bits throughout my day. Here are some of the ordinary things that bring be happiness:

Fresh Flowers
Visiting Sisters
Trees Blowing in the Breeze
Hot Baths
Down Filled Pillows
Confession
Warm Blankets
Porch Swings
Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream
Babies in Stripes
Prayer
Apples
Favorite Books
Sleeping Little Ones
Long Walks
Fairytales
Twinkle Lights
Wind
Wood in the Sunlight
White Linens
Good Blogs
A Clean House
Open Windows
Clotheslines
Candles Flickering
Swinging at the Playground

That's a very nice list. Somehow as I was reading it, a little voice in my head starting singing, "Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with string...." :)

And thanks for the link to Kyrie. I had not seen her blog before.

I agree that simple pleasures are the best, and also enjoy finding beauty in the most ordinary ~and even unexpected~ places. For example, one day when I was cleaning the bathroom I found myself admiring the toilet(!!!!)....I told one of my friends about it, and she still gives me grief.....and I can't say that I blame her!;)

Kate, I have never admired a toilet, but I can see why you would! Without it, life would be so much more difficult! Thank God for indoor plumbing!
