Simple Things

I admit to being “high maintenance” in many ways.  I MUST have my kitchen counters cleaned each night before I go to bed.  I must have my favorite coffee creamer.  I only wear MaryKay.  I have “my” scent at Bath and Bodyworks and I will NEVER run out of it.   I like a schedule-a predictable one.  I don’t do camping, for any reason, ever.  I don’t like to sweat. 

But there are so many simple, little things that give me pleasure.  Little things like:

Bazooka Bubble Gum

PaperMate Sharp Writer Pencils


Taking pictures

My kids laughing

The cat purring away in my arms

My red robe- fleece inside, quilted,  jersey knit outside

Sitting by the Lake, or ocean, or river, or stream- it’s the sound of the water




Brie- baked to a golden brown inside of crescent rolls or puff pastry

Dove Dark Chocolate Raspberry

A good glass of white merlot on occasion

Crunchy Cheetos

The smell of April Fresh Downy fabric softener

Silk pillow cases

A bubble bath

and, somewhere along the way, high maintenance melts into simplicity and the two melt together into Just Me.
