Simple Things

Today I am grateful that my evening last night was full of the simple things that make life so great.

A roof over my head to shelter me from the rain.
A big bowl of pumpkin soup to nourish me.
A feather doona over my bed to keep me warm.
A fabulous book to entertain me.
Two beautiful furkids to keep me company.
My amazing girlfriend to share it with.

It was so enjoyable that I fell asleep while I was writing this post! Oops!!


Bed Picnics

Today I am grateful for bed picnics because that’s how we’ve spent our Friday night together. We made a great big share platter of yummy antipasto for dinner; it was so good! Triple cream Brie, rosemary & sea salt crackers, stuffed baby bell peppers, kalamata olives in balsamic, semi-sundried tomatoes and feta, creamy roasted capsicum dip, Jarlsberg cheese slices, and smoked leg ham. Yum!

In the middle of winter, when it’s reached a maximum temperature of only 11 degrees centigrade all day, there’s no better time to have a bed picnic with a movie. The rain was beating down outside but the house was toasty warm. The food was delish, and the movie (Contagion) was great, but best of all was spending my Friday evening with my little family; just me and my girl and our two furkids (Missy & Madison).



Play Time

Today I am grateful for play time with my little girl, Missy. She’s a Burmese cat and she’s the little darling of our household; she and her older brother Madison are our two furkids.

Even though she’s 7 years old she still plays like a kitten, and I especially love it when she gets her crazy eyes on!

She’s adorable.
