Simple Pleasures Of Home


I get extremely happy when I am in bed and it is raining.
Clean sheets make me feel so cozy and comfortable.
Sitting at my desk with my dog at my feet, or just in the same room makes home feel complete.
I love evenings... With candles and something nice to eat.

It is the simple pleasures that put the sweet in 'home sweet home' for me!

What simple home pleasures make your soul overflow with joy?

Happy Wednesday!

Love,
Summer

    I like a morning walk in the rain.

  10. Good Evening Summer, I love spending time with my daughters, as they live a long way away, so when we do manage to get together, we laugh, we share food and we are just happy to be in each others company.
    Best wishes

  14. Simple pleasures are the best. There was a sign at our favorite farm stand when our kids were growing up that said "Thank God for Ordinary Days".... we all still subscribe to that philosophy!

  15. I'm the same way about rain. I love to read my Kindle at night in bed with little lights in a bottle surrounded by other "found" bottles all around it. It's a cozy way to give a little light.

  16. My gosh! You nailed me with all of your favorite moments!! Snow falling when I'm snuggled inside with nothing planned. Sitting on a beach. Snuggling in bed in the morning with the newspaper, coffee and the dogs!

    Thanks for your visit. I love your blog!

  18. Clean sheets and towels. A cup of brewed tea. A kitty curled up behind me on the sofa. That's all I need for the perfect evening at home.

  19. Oh you and I are kindred spirits. This afternoon the rain was tapping on my attic roof while I sat at my desk and it was indeed a simple delight.

  20. Hi Summer, I feel the same way when it rains. I love to be in my studio painting and watching it rain outside my windows. It's cozy and inspiring for me with the lights on and the sound of peaceful rainfall. Have a great week.

  24. I'm the same with rain when I'm in bed - I get the clean sheets thing too. Sitting down to do some knitting, knowing that all the daily chores have been done, also makes me very happy. Here's to many more homely moments. xx

  25. Your narration makes me imagine:) It's so true that we can find real joy in simple things or in ordinary days.

  27. Ooh, I too love fresh clean sheets! Especially after I shaved my legs! LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  28. Love that photo! Is it Thomas Kincade? His pictures of the light and home have always drawn me in. I love a simple little cottage, with the lights on at night... some candles burning.... one of my favorite time of lights is at Christmas with the tree up, all the lights out but the tree lights, sitting with a mug of hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music. Love it when I'm around my family, sisters, son and we are enjoying dinner and comradeship. Nothing better than walking around my little cottage after it's all cleaned and dusted, vacuumed, clean bed, and all my little knick knacks shining brightly winking at me. A nice cozy, warm and lovingly filled with our favorite things is the BEST simple pleasure for me!

  29. You are so right. Life really is about the simple pleasures and small moments. I love my coffee, time with my family, petting and playing with my critters. I love gardening. Yesterday I found Monarch butterfly caterpillars on my milkweed. That's a simple pleasure to me. :)

    Happy Thoughts of Home Summer.

  30. It's nearly time for bed. I've got my knitting and books around me, the little one is fast asleep, clean sheets and yes rain on the roof which doesn't leak. Yes - to simple things which are big blessings.
