"After all," Anne had said to Marilla once, "I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
- Anne of Avonlea by Lucy Maud Montgomery
And so begins my story of a simple pleasure I enjoyed this morning.
I dash to the laundry room because my towels are still in the dryer from yesterday's laundry. I push the dryer button "on" and head into the kitchen for a quick breakfast and reading and commenting on a few blog posts (my March addiction).
Breakfast finished, I grab the towels out of the dryer, ball them tightly and drop them into the laundry basket of clean clothes. I head straight to the shower, shower quickly, and step out of the shower into one of life's simple pleasures: hot towels. And that, my friend, is the perfect way to start a new day.
What are the "...simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string" that make your day?
(I miss the gas heater in the bathroom from my childhood home. I know it was a fire hazard, but your towel hanging above it in the winter was always warm and so was the bathroom when you stepped out of the shower.)
