One Deep Breath - Simple Pleasures


.....................
..................Silky golden head
..........................resting on my arm just now
..............................Trixie home again

This week's prompt from One Deep Breath is Simple Pleasures. This one was the most immediate to me - the pleasure of a presence like Trixie, her companionship. Then there's coffee, there are figs and almonds. There is October sunshine and the sound of the sea. There's sitting with friends and planning birthday treats for friends. There is the prospect of puy lentil stew for dinner. There is the feeling of my hair after it's been blow-dried smooth. There is that cedarwood candle a friend gave me last week, and there is the song of a thrush outside.

How true - one of my greatest pleasures is cuddling with my two furry babes!

Loved your haiku, and the rest of your simple pleasures list! Thanks for sharing :)

Pets can bring a lot of simple pleasure.

My old dog was Trixie too. :)

GreenishLady,
Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog.
It is all about the simple pleasures isn't it?

Unconditional love from our pets is soul soothing.

Trixie looks quite fetching, and I like this post. Now I'm hungry for some almonds and figs though :-)

I wanted to ask you about Trixie. I saw a free adoption of a little Yorkie puppy, and I was thinking of calling about it. But are they yappy dogs? Because my hubs hates little yappy dogs. But I think they are so sweet! And when I have seen them, they are not yappy, but i thought I would ask you.

I really want a Cavalier, but that might have to wait.
