Celebrate the Simple Things


Taking a moment or an hour to celebrate the simple things is precious to me.
I often celebrate the day with a cup of tea in the garden.
A book by my side for dreaming.
The savoring of the squirrels scampering across the lawn
or the birds swooping under the branches of my big tree.
For it is in these small celebrations that I delight
and that sooth my soul.

What is soothing your soul today?

Hello Marilyn, nice to find you! I'm a fellow PNW blogger and interestingly found your link from Madelief's blog in Rotterdan, The Netherlands! How fun! I live in Corbett, Oregon and blog about the gorge and my century old farm and family life. I hope you drop by and visit!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

We are kindred spirits Marilyn, everything you listed is exactly what mine are. Nature keeps me grounded. Sitting and enjoying the sites and sounds give me peace.

So pretty! Love the white tray and the soft pink colour of the teacup.

Tea in the garden with a good book is my relaxation on weekend mornings. I look forward to it each weekend. (Beautiful pink teacup in your photo.)

I hope to have a beautiful soothing garden like that one day!

It's very rainy here, and I have been loving quiet afternoons on the sofa listening to the rain and reading a book.

What a fabulous old tree to enjoy! Such a pretty landscape in your garden and a perfect setting for tea time.

How lovely! That first image would make a great postcard or cover for a journal!

You have such a beautiful garden to sit and enjoy your tea and quiet time. I love how you displayed your angel. I find a cup of tea can soothe the soul and make all things seem right again.

Oh, how these BEAUTIFUL images lift my spirit, Marilyn... day-dreamy-inviting, refreshing... *sigh*... Such fun to catch up with you after some days away. :o) ((HUGS))
