Celebrate for Sunday Scribblings

I’m celebrating Saturday,
melting snow,
my husband going
to the IGA with me,
not having a cold anymore,
the smell of warm clothes
just out of the dryer,
listening to a show
featuring music by The Doors,
(“Come on baby light my fire”)
keeping up with NaPoWriMo,
(This is actually my second poem today!)
April,
no rain,
a letter from a friend,
ham, green pepper, and cheese omelet,
cutting a lilac branch
and putting it in water to force,
Planters Cocktail Peanuts with sea salt,
a cocktail,
crafting,
a good book,
blogs,
life.

Ham, green pepper & chesse omelet... How did I forget to add that one in my celebrations?
:) I love it. I go to 'Iga' too, a fellow Canadian?

It's the little things in life that bring the greatest pleasure and satisfaction, when you add them all up, isn't it?

I love your list. :)

I did NaPoWriMo last year and at the end of April I said 'never again'! Really enjoyed your celebration.

I'm with you on all of these except for my husband going with me - I don't have one! Right now I'm joining you in a cocktail and hand full of nuts. Cheers!
