Simple Things

For me

Happiness is waking in the morning to 60-degree weather
opening your screen door
and hearing nature sounds

Happiness is
after a long day
you sit on the bench on your terrace
and view birds and butterflies in such an abundance
they almost sit on your shoulder

and this early morning
a beautiful doe is standing in your backyard.

And at the moment spaghetti sauce is simmering on the stove.

Life is Good

Been a rough week with a dental appointment that made Shingles a little worse.
