Simple pleasures are the best,
All the little things that make you smile and glow,
All the things you know,
Life's simple pleasures are the best,
Are the best,
In all the world.
So where did this come from? The first two lines of this long ago commercial have been running thru my head for weeks now! What commercial was it? How come I remember just the first two lines! It's driving me crazy! So, I do what every other person would do.... I google it! Any guesses? Well, it seems that it was the commercial jingle for VAN CAMPS PORK AND BEANS! Are you kidding me? HA, so funny!
Well, I started thinking about life's simple pleasures and realize that I have many simple things in my life that make me happy.
The pictures below are a big clue to one of my simple pleasures. Watching whatever Tressie happens to be doing at the time! She is so busy and she loves life!
Do you remember running thru the water from the sprinkler when you were little? Well, I admit that I don't remember doing it at this age, but I do remember that it was a simple pleasure when I was a kid!
I actually have some pictures of my sister and I and our two cousins in my Grandpa and Grandma's yard running thru the water. You WILL NOT see those pictures posted in this blog! We were about 5 or 6 and we were in our underwear! Can't believe that our parents took our picture! Anyway, we all had smiles on our faces and we clearly were enjoying this simple pleasure!
A great Sunday afternoon activity for a little girl that needed a nap but was easily satisfied with this simple pleasure!
I plan to share more of life's simple pleasures with you all. You will come to see what a simple person I really am!
