04:57 pm: Simple pleasures
Gacked from ibid:
Name ten of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick ten people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used.

(once again, I haven't put things in any order_
1. Looking at the different shades of green to be found in a tree or a forest.
2. Watching the tide come in as I walk along a beach of soft, golden sand.
3. Stone-ground bread with thick butter on thick slices.
4. The crunch of the first bite from an apple. Something like a Braeburn or a Cox's Pippin - not a FGD.
5. A steaming mug of hot coffee.
6. The smell of a pine forest. Or an orange grove. Or a lavender bush.
7. Music in the distance, so quiet that you have to strain to work out exactly what it is.
8. The sound of breakfast being cooked (sizzle of bacon, popping of toaster, jingle of crockery, boiling of kettle etc.)
9. Getting into a bed with newly laundered and aired sheets.
10. Waking up to a white and silent world covered in newly fallen snow.

The ten people know who they are. As you know, I don't tag people, not even vivh, sheaj34, lexin, therobbergirl, takahe, suilven, dezzikitty, meirion, frayer, ghoti.

Did you know you had covered all 5 senses with that list? Was is it intentional? I found it hard doing my list, couldn't really differentiate what was a simple pleasure from what was a taken for granted pleasure. What is a simple pleasure anyway? Might have to review my list!

Well spotted! Yes, it was intentional. By the time I had sorted out the first few, it struck me that I was close to touching all five senses, so I did it properly.
