The joy at completing your to do list

Having a tidy house

Having time to walk the dog,

The dog bounding around with joy on his walk, tail up and sniffing everywhere you go

Child climbing the slide, the right way and the wrong way

But having fun both ways

Eating dinner outside

In the glorious evening weather

Eating strawberries straight from your plants

Laughing at the excitement of eating the strawberries

Waking in the morning after a good nights sleep

Reading a picture encyclopedia at 7.45am

I know strange but true

It all the simple things that count

But that get forgotten throughout the day

But sometimes when the simple things get noticed

Your day seems a little bit brighter and a lot happier!

This week the Writing Workshop prompt is What Today Meant, please pop over and read the other posts, and why not join in!

    This post is lovely. Although I never complete my To Do list! We found tiny strawberries growing in the bank on the towpath on the way to the station this morning. It is great to notice the simple little things that make you happy. You should add this post to Josie’s linky http://www.sleepisfortheweak.org.uk/2011/07/04/writing-workshop-prompts-what-today-meant/

    I loved this post – storing up the small stuff like treasure is what gets me through greyer days. I love the slide one, fantastic!
