"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."-- Robert Brault
It's Palisades peach time again in Colorado and my tastes buds are doing the happy dance. There's only one thing better than a luscious, juicy, fresh peach, and that's a second luscious, juicy, fresh peach.
Little things always seem to rev my motor more than big things. Today has been filled with the pleasure of little things.
A young buck in our back yard early this morning. . .
Watching the horses from my kitchen window while the coffee brews. . .
A visit from our resident wildflower-eating bunny. . .
The American flag Dennis hangs on our barn every morning (yes, we're hopeless patriots). . .
Geraniums in my window. . .
I enjoy spending time with friends. We've invited a couple of artist friends over for a cookout tonight. We'll share a simple meal and conversation. Mostly we'll talk about little things.
"I am beginning to learn it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all."
-- Laura Ingalls Wilder
