More Simple Pleasures of Summer

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sherrie Porterfield @ 2:00 pm

My Blooming Boomers friend, Sandy, just posted about simple pleasures and enjoying nature. We BOTH love this time of year!

Today, here are some of the simple pleasures I am enjoying:

• My husband home all day in the summer – he works for the school district and today is his first day of summer vacation! He is working in the garden. This is the view I have from my desk!


• How blessed I feel that I can work from home (graphic design), so that I can flex my schedule to enjoy these summer moments.

• How fun it is to see birds, deer – and even the neighbor’s cat – enjoying a drink at the bird bath.


• The smell of freshly baked lemon blueberry bread that I just made.

• The just-picked purple and yellow iris that miraculously bloom every year.

• The matching doily that I traditionally place the iris on – that my husband’s grandmother made for us many years ago.

• My collection of teacups and saucers that I bring out and use just for fun.


Ahhh, simple pleasures of summer!
