Small joys

on July 8, 2013

Tiny moccasins for my soon-to-be-born niece
Anthony kissing my hand today as if I were royalty
The new kitchen sink plug that makes it possible to wash the dishes in less of a rush
My new red boots
Getting the stupid lawn mower fixed finally
Choosing Lino and blinds for Ming’s shed
Watching Judge Judy with Ants (he loves her!)
The baby kookaburra I saw yesterday
Accepting what is

    That is so very sweet. The attitude of gratitude lightens our loads, doesn’t it. Glad to see you back, my friend across the waves… 🙂

    Small Joys bring the biggest Pleasure.

  4. The ‘little’ things in life that we just take for granted sometimes… Diane

  5. Ha! I can see why Anthony likes Judge Judy – she’s direct and doesn’t mince her words! Congrats on almost being a new aunt Queen Julie.


  6. Aah… I was wondering how Ming’s shed was coming along. Has he moved in yet?
    PS. “accepting what is” is the greatest of advice

  7. Do we get to see pics of Ming’s shed eventually?

    There is no place for lawn mower abuse on the internet, Julie. I hope we are going to get a picture of the new red boots too.

    Sounds like everything is going well for you at the moment.

    We’re happy here in Scotland with Andy being first Scottish winner of men’s singles at Wimbledon. It’s also very warm in Glasgow at 25C, so that will do me.

    We’re both happy.

  14. That was so sweet and joyous Jules! You put a smile on my face 🙂
