GBE 71 - Simple Pleasures


The subject this week is "Simple Pleasures." Here are some that I thought of over the past couple days, plus some I've heard over the years.

Receiving an unexpected compliment.

Helping someone in need.

Making someone smile.


Finding money you didn’t know you had.

Receiving a real letter or package via snail mail.

Making the yellow light.

Hearing the right song at the right moment.

Catching a glimpse of bare skin on the opposite sex.

People watching.

A beautiful view.

Relaxing outdoors on a sunny day.

Listening to good music.

Taking a long, relaxing shower.

A good novel.

The smell of fresh-cut grass.

The smell of the earth.

Watching the sunrise.

Watching the sunset.

Walking on the beach.

Laughing till your sides hurt.

A long conversation with a good friend.

Being lazy on a Sunday.

An uncluttered room.

Fries and a milkshake.

Singing in the shower.

Fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies.

Homemade pie.

Laying back and watching the stars.

Laying back and looking up at clouds.

Watching a lightning storm.

Reese’s peanut butter cups.

PB&J sandwich.

Seeing your savings account grow.

Watching your debt shrink.

A gentle breeze.

Checking something off your to-do list.

A clear desk.

Watching animals in nature.

An empty email inbox.

This is my submission to the GBE. This week's topic is "Simple Pleasures"

The GBE, or Group Blogging Experience is great fun. Each week (usually on Tuesday) we are given a general topic by our fearless leader Alicia and we have until that Saturday to blog about it. Say whatever you want. Silly, serious, true, fiction, debate.... whatever. It's up to you.

If your interested just go to
Alicia's Blog and and check it out. If you want to participate comment her blog saying "I'm in", that's it. No big sign up or anything. You blog and she'll link to your blog and everyone else's on Saturday.

Make sure you're not private, although it's not a necessity. It just makes it easier for
everyone to read your submission.
