Simple Pleasure Thursday.

Cory writing ....

My simple pleasure today is the art of communication. I love to talk with people about all kinds of things, but my favorite thing is to pick people's brains about what they think about certain subjects.

This just happened with my wife and I last night driving to church. I was talking to my wife about the friends that we have in each others lives and why we choose the friends we have. It was a very deep and pleasurable conversation and I believe we both learned a lot about each other in a simple conversation.

Thank you for everyone that is participating in the Simple Pleasure Thursdays. If you haven't participated just yet I encourage you to write something, anything. It will improve you day and the outlook you have on your life trust me.

I would have to say my simple pleasure is sleeping with the windows open. Even though I wake up and it is llike 68 in our's actually warm. (at least under my covers...which essentially makes it hard to get out of bed.) but I love it!

Umm... I believe that was your simple pleasure alerady. **to the judge - Are we allowed to repeat simple pleasure?


Just kidding. My simple pleasure, this week, is being able to benefit from something, even if I have NO idea how it works. For example - my car, my cell phone, my computer... we all have general ideas on how things work, but the coolest thing is that you don't HAVE to understand the inner workings of something in order to be able to benefit from it.

We talked about it in our class at church last night. It's a pretty cool thing... don't you think?

My simple pleasure is our new glider/rocker!!!! It has made such a difference when it comes to calming Tessie down and really helps out the back pain we are feeling.

Simple pleasures are allowed to be repeated. That just means they are experienced more than once.

Cory, the first thing I want to say is that I love love LOVE your whole Simple Pleasures thing... so much so that, as long as you don't mind, I think I'm going to make one of my own!

With that said, this week my simple pleasure is taking the time to feed the squirrels on a beautiful fall day. My schedule doesn't allow for much free time these days... between school and work and my duties at the firehouse, it seems like I'm always running! But on Tuesday I was blessed with a few hours in the afternoon and nothing that I HAD to do. I stopped at the grocery store and bought a big bag of roasted peanuts and headed to the park.

I walked around for almost 2 hours distributing the goodies... it was so relaxing! My favorite part was when I could get the squirrels to come take the nuts right out of my hands! (and my MOST favoritist part was when this little piggy of a squirrel took one peanut out of my hand and was standing there next to me eating it but then looked over at me and realized I had more in my hand so he stuffed the first peanut in his cheek, reached out and took a 2nd peanut, stuffed it in his other cheek and took off running!)
