The last Monday in August and I'm wondering what September will bring, the year this far has been so odd, really mixed up! Many fine bloggers are posting about simple pleasures today, a lovely idea, but I think I'll change it up a bit and share some Country Pleasures with you, get it! lol Simple things are small treasures just waiting to be noticed, like the weather being a season ahead, or the frequent rains that keeps the blooms coming. Country pleasures are no different, maybe more so since living in the country can be more eventful. Like a daily walk to the mailbox that helps you lose weight, or spying the apple trees that will be cooked into pies, and taking note on what grows wild around you. There are so many country pleasures, all different for each of us, but simple pleasures all the same. My heart is heavy with gratitude for my simple, blessed life! It's always a good time to stop and be thankful for the life you have, if you don't like it, change it. If you love it, show it!
I had hoped to be bragging about the library by now, but we still have to frame the doorway in and trim it out, but I'm anxious to call it done. Hubby got a well deserved weekend off from house projects to do some manly things, like scope out some hunting land, do some fishing and float the river. Little does he know that he's all mine this extra long Labor day weekend! We still have alot to do before deer season! lol I hope you take a minute or two today to reflect on the simple things in your life that mean so much, and feel free to share them here with us, they are worth bragging about, aren't they!
