What simple things have I experienced today?
1. Having time to sit outside on the deck and drink two cups of coffee this morning. It was around 50 degrees and I was wearing my beloved red plaid flannel robe. There was just a slight breeze and the dogs were exploring the yard, quietly. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of this quiet, peaceful time to start my day.
2. Eating a warm bowl of old-fashioned oatmeal out of a Blue Willow bowl. I'm not a big oatmeal person, but this morning it just seemed like the right thing to eat. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of food.
3. The smell of fresh cut rosemary. I usually try to have cuttings in the kitchen window of rosemary, lavender, or what ever else is growing. This morning the rosemary was very fragrant and lingered on my hands for quite a while after I arranged the cuttings. Thank you, Lord, for herbs and their pleasant smell and taste.
